    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very rewarding seeing your product on the road. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Very little motivation when raises aren't given. Engineers are project managers and don't really do much "engineering", just a lot of supervising and paperwork. Unless you are in Detroit you feel very disconnected from the company.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to provide incentives for work done.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at General Motors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Lots of job opportunities if you are willing to try "new" things. Great employee product discounts.

    Cons

    General sense of complacency, no motivation to go "above and beyond". Old boy network firmly in place; only a small minority involved in serious product development. Old mentality led to this company's problems. The writing was on the wall for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Bloated workforce considering the output.
