    IT Transition

    IT Department (Current Employee)
    Warren, MI

    ProsHigh Salaries, Access to Training and Certification, Love working with cars, opportunities to travel to scenic Austin for business trips

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
    Warren, MI

    ProsMultiple tasks, benefits, personnel from all types of countries, persons willing to work together from all departments to accomplish many tasks for their group and many other areas.

    Good company, excellent potential

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Warren, MI

    ProsColleagues, friendly and generally courteous interactions at meetings, work-life balance is quite good and gives you flexibility with work hours.

    ConsManagement can be hierarchical and some departments can be bureaucratic resulting in delayed decision making. Career growth prospects are slim to none and promotions are often made based on whom you know rather than what you can do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote people objectively based on capabilities instead of subjective criteria

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not shy from facing problems, admit mistakes and do not repeat them

    GM somehow cannot take the leap to be a great company.

    Senior Project Engineer (Current Employee)
    Warren, MI

    ProsGM still pays better than many companies around Detroit as well as nationally. If you are lucky to be in a good group, you get to do interesting work. For a Mechanical Engineer, cars are among the most interesting things to work on. Detroit suburbs are boring but have many good schools, affordable housing and the state of Michigan is home to good universities.

    ConsGM is a company to become a "one trick pony." Most employees end up doing the same stuff year after year. It is important to be placed in an important product development group. Otherwise, career can quickly become meaningless. There are many bad managers. Promotions are generally reserved for people involved in cost cutting. Detroit is not a fun city either.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees need to be empowered and rewarded. It is important to get rid of old boys clubs within the companies.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
