Approves of CEO

I worked at General Motors as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Company leasing cars to employees and discounts

Cons

You will never work under 50 hours per week. Too many production workers who don't care about their job, will fight change at every corner, and start conflict.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    New products are very competitive and well positioned in the market. Pricing is very good and incentives are attractive to younger buyers on a budget. New pick ups should do well in an improving market.

    Cons

    Slow growth, needs to conquer more affluent customers who are willing to pay more for their cars and trucks. There are some areas in the portfolio that need to be filled in order to maximize market share and revenue.

    Advice to Management

    Do not shy from facing problems, admit mistakes and do not repeat them


  2. "ok"

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at General Motors as a contractor

    Pros

    Lots of nice people- Many lines form their own bonds and often have their own parties and group actvities
    Management isn't too bad-most of the supervisors are nice and work with you
    There is a lot of breaks

    Cons

    Temporary employees at the Marion, IN plant have no chance of ever getting hired and generally work harder than the full-time employees.
    I really enjoyed working this job even as a temporary position, but when offered the chance I didn't return due to the fact that I knew there was no chance of getting hired. As a temporary employee you get no benefits and have no union representation although they make you pay union dues.
