I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I've always loved working on cars. Being part of the future of transportation is exiting

Cons

Advice to Management

Retrain your middle mamagement to get with the times. Stop using "fortress balance sheet" as an excuse not to give any salary increases.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Matches background, industry has downsized considerably. I am not sure if I am lucky or unlucky to still be in the industry.

    Cons

    Pay structure reduced. Raises are no longer added to base, one time payment. Pensions frozen for salary, not hourly. Certain salary pensions allowed to go to government administration with drastic reductions. 401k's are a fine alternative, but employer contribution much lower during the days of pension accrural.

    Advice to Management

    Salary workforce will be mobile as economy picks up, no incentive for longevity
