    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn and grow in your career. Great people to work with. Work life balance.

    Cons

    GM is a big company and politics exist. Long days, lots of hours tends to be the norm. Retirement plans for younger employees.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more work life balance.

    Pros

    Some groups can push the tech/feature envelope. You're encouraged to push yourself past your limits.

    Cons

    Hiring too many people too fast. It's very chaotic there and apps are getting thrown together without much proper design.

    Pros

    Very challenging work. Pay is pretty good. Bonus is nice in good years. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Silos still exist. Basically need to have minority status to get promoted. Amazing how many have been promoted to level of their own competence.

    Advice to Management

    Start walking the talk. Most are just trying to stay out of the way, so they don't get noticed.

    Interesting Job, nice people, flex time depending on the manager

    Cons

    Takes a while to get permanent

    Advice to Management

    If you have good employees who work hard and want to be direct. You should not wait too long because you might just lose good people

    Pros

    good parking
    good food in cafeteria

    Cons

    I was recruited out of FSU as a software developer. When I got to Austin, I was told that my job was changed to QA Analyst. Now I can't get out of my 900/month lease and I have to do 2 years under contract for my relocation allocation.

    Advice to Management

    spend more time allocating talent and less time covering your behind

    I worked at General Motors

    Pros

    One can learn a lot at GM as it has complex and global operations

    Cons

    Because of the complexity and global operations, the IT is quite ineffective. There are very few people who know the stuff and they end up working and covering for the rest

    Advice to Management

    Simplify your operations and hold people accountable
