    Pros

    General motors has a very diverse employment base with numerous avenues to expand your tool box of knowledge and experience.

    Cons

    General motors often holds you into a position when you excel at it as opposed to allowing you to expand your horizons. Often those who struggle gain more experience in order to find their niche.

    Advice to Management

    I would strongly suggest that General motors create a definitive career path with positive change and continuous improvement. They should train more cross functionally.

  3. Good Company

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. A lot of paid holidays. You learn something new everyday.

    Cons

    Too much micromanaging by bosses. When you have a product that sales, expect to work many hours. You're not promoted because of the work that you do but if you're the best brown noser. Your boss always throws your salary and bonuses in your face.

    Advice to Management

    Micro manage the people who aren't producing. Stop throwing our CAP in our faces!!!

    I have been working at General Motors full-time

    Pros

    There is lots of opportunity for overtime. The benefits are pretty good. The pay is good if you don't have a college degree.

    Cons

    New hires are now on the tier 2 pay scale and get paid considerably less than people working right next to you. Labor intense job that can be hard on the body.

    Pros

    * Hired great college graduates and experienced engineers
    * more freedom to design in your area of responsibility.
    * Recognize individual contributions

    Cons

    * Not focused in mentoring young and inexperienced engineers. Lack of supervision and involvement by management. Instead it rely on senior engineers for their training and learnings, but at the same time management wants competition --- this creates conflicts.
    * Doesn't focus on team work but individual accomplishments
    * Management allow culture of pride, trash talk and unproductive competition among engineers
    * management allowed non-business behaviors. For example, open dating among young coworkers creates people issues (almost feel like high school, this should be after work and personal)
    * Management allow childish behavior among young people
    * Does not embrace innovation, 'not invented here' attitudes, not open to criticism (improvements) from engineers outside their area

    Advice to Management

    * Practice team work rather than 'alliances' even within each organization
    * allow open communication between employee and upper management
    * Promote right people and social values, integrity, teamwork

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, interact with many different people and departments. Working with smart, skilled people.

    Cons

    Everything here is slow. Nothing happens fast and decisions take weeks, sometimes months, to make. Politics weigh heavily at the director level and above and affect decision making.

    Advice to Management

    Transparent communication with employees is a good thing. Wherever a communication vacuum exists people will fill it with what they perceive as true.
