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

Pros

If you have a good assignment, you get a lot of visibility from your leaders and the public. It pays well and there are opportunities to work long-term assignments overseas.

Cons

Things move slow, cutting edge ideas are usually irritating to management and then the engineers and suppliers are typically not talented enough to do a proper execution of the initial design making designers and the company look bad on whole.

Advice to Management

Find better engineering talent. Get more 'Rock Stars' instead of paying the lowest bidder in India to do essential software development. Would be wise to set up a UI development center in San Francisco or NYC to attract top-tier talent. It would be worth the money!

    I have been working at General Motors as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice People, but they don't use technology effecively and rarely think of new/better ways of doing a task. My boss did give me a chance to meet with other departements so that I could have a better understanding of the business.

    Cons

    You can see why they went under, totally inefficent and money spent on lots of unecessary projects. People were impressed with me using Power Point (really?). It was partially due to an older work force, but that's still not acceptable. Some people were still using projection slides for presentations.

    Advice to Management

    Spend money like it's your own.
