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

    Pros

    Vehicle discount
    Vehicle development can be interesting

    Cons

    Vehicle discount must be GM
    No raises for several years even though reviewed performance is high
    Promotion not based on merit
    Spend 20 min finding a parking spot at primary engineering center
    Age discrimination rampant
    Long hours

    Advice to Management

    Leadership does not play the role of leaders (e.g., clearing roadblocks, strategic planning)
    Leaders slow to make decisions, waiting for data for every decision so they are not criticized
    Negative recent product reviews due to poor leadership (check out CUE review in Consumer Reports)

    I worked at General Motors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    GM has some exceptionally bright people in its workforce.

    Cons

    GM's finance leadership and CEO are focused on stock prices and profitability and continue to show little interest in the core business. Because of this, GM continues to lose market share.

    Advice to Management

    Need to balance all aspects of business and focus on more than just the bottom line. This did NOT work in the past and will NOT work going forward. The US taxpayers gave up a lot to keep GM afloat. Don't disappoint them.
