    I have been working at General Motors

    Pros

    Large known automotive company in industry

    Cons

    Stagnant, takes too many channels to ever get things done. Managers unconcerned with coaching and mentoring their employees. No career paths and any information is impossible to find.

    Pros

    Big company with deep pockets.

    Big company. No centralized authority. No one can say 'yes' but anyone can say 'no."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who love cars.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    relatively easy to get the job offer.
    good work-life balance
    good mentorship(at least in my team)

    I'm lucky that my team members are really helpful when I just get started, when I have questions I can always find the right people to ask and it works well. Also my manager is really nice and cares about my growth.

    Cons

    low starting salary
    lots of red tapes
    bullying new hires

    you need to know how to deal with people like a politician to survive, experienced employees like bullying and stabbing others(especially against new hires) in the back. Technical skill is less important than communication skill. You performance is evaluated by whom you know not what you know.

    Starting salary is the same for all new hires regardless of their background(and it's below the average). No matter if you a CS major or business major, the salary is all the same as software developers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more techinical questions to the interview process, pure behavioral questions will not help you find the most qualified candidates.
