    Pros

    not many. A good pay for a job right out of college. Young environment since they have hired about 3,000 college hires nationally in the past year for IT.

    Cons

    - do not care at all about career development even though they will preach to you that they do
    - managers do not care at all about the big picture of the company
    - treat college hires like dirt and give them no responsibility at all
    - tell you its very easy to move around within the company if a role is not a fit for you, HUGE LIE
    - All processes are non existent yet you have to follow them....nuff said
    - so many people in roles they are not qualified for and no one cares to train them
    - Training is a joke at this company and non existent for detailed skills
    - reward employees based on seniority not over intelligence and hard work

    In the end all the "promises" used to get me to commit were all lies when I actually got to GM.

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about turning around GM. And show this in your actions. Lead by example. You all need to understand that the middle management (the people who are GM lifers 15+ years) have not and will not buy into the IT transformation therefor they should be fired, period. Otherwise the company will go under...again.

    Pros

    Good money; depending on function, decent work-life balance; awesome cars

    Cons

    Depending on function, sometimes too much travel; people not directly tied to building cars can make decisions that impact final product negatively, adding to frustrations

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros to working in this place. They hold out the potential onboarding with the company as bait to keep people there longer, but in the end, they just fire the temp workers and bring in a new training class each time.

    Cons

    My advice to anyone considering working at the Global Service Desk at General Motors in Austin, Texas is to apply for the position of manure cleaner at the zoo. You'll be better treated there and more respected as a human than at the GM GSD-Austin Sweatshop.

    Advice to Management

    All of the local management needs to be fired and reprimanded for inhumane treatment.

    Pros

    Global organization with huge technology and business capabilities. There is a real top management commitment to develop great products, provide a good working environment for employees, act with transparency and contribute to the communities where they operate.

    Cons

    In spite of the the effort, many business processes are still complex and bureaucratic,
