Too many free loaders, folks stuck perpetually int he past, lots of arrogance.

Advice to Management

Leave behind old world thinking, closed or NIH syndrome types, ultra conservative, misogynistic views

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

    Pros

    Very interesting work, top notch technical staff. Milford proving grounds is a one of a kind place. I've worked aerospace and the only similar places are Edwards AFB and Pax River.

    Cons

    Promotions not correlated to your work. Responsibility, performance, and skills don't seem to matter. Even when you are working in a position for which the title is above your current title, the company will not promote or recognize you. Poor talent identification process.

    Advice to Management

    Make the best product, period. Anything else will land the company back in bankruptcy.

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

    Pros

    reasonable pay, facilities are a plus, local mgmt is interested. benefits are still good, although they have decreased since bankruptcy.

    Cons

    top mgmt changing constantly since bankruptcy, top mgmt has pressure for their program of the day, existing employees stuck with everybody's an idiot image.

    Advice to Management

    listen to employees, and then make your moves. don't paint everyone with the same brush. Keep an open mind to past successes and failures and study them.
