Pros

The salary, work environment, and perks are one of the best, compared to other very large corporations, and they have some of the best resources to make their own products. The employees are extremely talented, friendly, and helpful.
GM is one of three American companies which manufacture their automobiles in the United States, and I think that is an important enough reason to support the continuation of its production. Although GM may be notoriously known for the large size of their automobiles, I believe the concept of having an American branded car has a lot of potential in establishing American presence on a global basis.

Cons

It takes forever to see anything change.

Advice to Management

Keep up the effort in building greener cars. Also, although I am not a business major, I think something needs to be re-looked at in the financial structure of the company from what I am reading in the news.

    Pros

    As an intern, GM is a great place to work because it is a global company with such a strong presence in the US. You are treated as though you are a full-time employee, and are offered opportunities to interact with mid- to upper-level management and senior level executives. There are many locations to live and work in and they offer competitive pay and perks. Interaction with other interns can be achieved through housing arrangements, intern-initiated gatherings, case competitions, and company-planned intern events.

    Cons

    Many of the employees there have never worked elsewhere so they don't bring in best practices from other industries. To combat that, GM has high levels of interaction with agencies to bring creativity to their work. You get great experience with high level thinking, but most executional work is taken on by agency partners.

    Advice to Management

    The company situation is too complex at this point for me to provide recommendations without further research.

    This is a huge company with a lot of opportunity. The salaries and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    The union makes this a challenging environment. Job security doesn't exist but that no different than most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Manage during booms for the lean times.
