    The number of vacations days after a certain number of years in GM adds up good days of vacation, 401 K match, plenty of volunteering opportunities. Medical, Dental, Vision, and life insurance. good company and performance bonuses. Things can get worse only if you are in the wrong team, great company to work for.

    Very general PTO/vacation, start with 3 weeks upon employment, plus the whole Christmas to New Week off due to factory close out. Very generous 401K matching (8%), with a caveat: it has to be 3 years before 100% matured, or you lose all the match.
