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

Pros

The use of company vehicles is a nice bonus.

Cons

Expectations are for 12+ hour work days, anything less and you're a slacker.

Advice to Management

HR practices are so far out of alignment that the company has no chance for success. Top performers are not rewarded, under performers are not dealt with, which eventually drives the top performers down to a lower level of performance. Additionally, performance metrics are not in alignment with company goals, again, driving the wrong performance. This appears to be a fairly common problem across Manufacturing, Purchasing and Engineering.

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