    I worked at General Motors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    smart analyst. best in class finance and engineering staff and facilities.
    great brand name. now have a clean sheet and lot of baggage shed
    smart engineers.
    finance whiz have been humbled.
    many retiring in next 5-10 years.

    Cons

    too many layers and old General Managers and above trying to protect turf and keep fat in organization. dull HR.
    some old guard while necessary will stop GM from being innovative.

    Advice to Management

    now that you have a clean sheet from Chapter 11, question every major initiative of Executive Director and above that sounds self promoting or process creating. Hire from colleges creatively and when hiring from outside, be opportunistic. Their timing and your timing may not match. Retain good people by giving them important assignments.


  2. "Large company that provides great benefits with many diverse opportunities, but restraints of a large bureaucracy."

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is on par with the industry.
    Many different career opportunities for a growing or ever changing career path.
    Great access to automotive benefits such as the opportunity to drive the vehicles, access to service documents, and more.

    Cons

    Work environment can be impersonal.
    Job Application process is impersonal.
    Engineers do more project management than engineering.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for Engineers to engineer and apply their skill set and be creative; align employees with careers that take advantage of their skill sets and career goals.
    Transparency and interaction with employees is of great importance in retaining and encouraging the best talent.
