I have been working at GM Financial full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Financially stable and progressive work environment

Compensation and benefits are very competitive for the marketplace

Very strong / high caliber technical professional and knowledgeable staff with exceptional work ethics for the most part

Current state technological toolset and management commitment to continue to invest

Open, solution oriented organizational environment in some areas

Some management that truly cares about and works to mentor the individual

Team orientation is very strong, but at times very competitive in nature

Advancement opportunities are good and based on performance merit

Cons

Fast paced growth by acquisition has brought on organizational integration issues that fosters what's identified below :

Pressure to keep up requires a high-level of multi-tasking, adding to individual pressure and possible frustration

No apparent corporate wide information strategy that has led to disconnected siloes that operate autonomously with varying levels of governance and their own technical platforms

EMails proliferate the environment and are frequently more CYA intrusive than informative

Although improving,, new employee orientation is lacking where they must be very self-sufficient, learn by doing and forced to interrupt others who are very busy with questions

Procedures / processes are loosely documented, change and have exception conditions

Organizational competitiveness exists to the point of being negative overall impact

Arena calls for being very politically astute that can be counter-productive by the fear-of-recrimination factor

Advice to Management

All points below are being addressed in different organizations with different actions:

Increase the communication channels and utilization of them; management needs to walk and talk to lower level employees more frequently

Formalize a comprehensive, Enterprise Wide People / Information Integration Strategy with clearly defined and dated performance goals and individual task level accountability

As part of that strategy work to remove decision level information silos and intra-organizational
competitiveness : Establish a "One-Team-One-Goal" atmosphere

Address the "Cons" stated above and improve upon the "Pros"

Take the time to assess and fully utilize each employee's strengths and put action plans in place to improve their performance where needed.

If employee's strengths better employed in another area or assignment, move them

Plan activities that provide breaks from the pressure

Remain open to and encourage ideas and concepts presented by all levels of staff : foster and recognize innovation
