Other digital services, such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM radio, and 4G LTE wireless, are available inside Maven cars as well.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Has all of the different types of IT jobs under one roof. What may take several different companies to obtain the various IT skills and experiences throughout the industry can be done right in house.

    Cons

    Not a lot of institutional knowledge was documented. Due to years of perform supplier dependencies. Processes and doctrine has consistently changed.

    Advice to Management

    Globalize more processes. Focus on creating technology and process Centers of Excellence. Create a standard knowledge management repository.
