I have been working at General Motors full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The pay and benefits are good.

Cons

It doesn't matter what position you hired in for, when a re-org happens, nobody cares. No job future here in IT. Old GM directors in IT know absolutely nothing about IT and the nobody knows what the new directors know. No strategy comes from the Top. They leave it to the little guys at the bottom to figure everything out. What a mess it is.

Advice to Management

Soon, many of the new IT hires will be walking out the door unless they see a future at this company and leadership from the top down. Get rid of the dead weight that's been sitting around for years!

    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.

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

    Pros

    The company is great to develop a career. Unfortunately, some of the people still have the OLD GM mentality.

    Cons

    Some of the middle managers still have the OLD GM mentality and makes the corporate culture less than desirable.
