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

    Pros

    Benefits are good compare to other companies in this category.
    Big investments on technology and buildings

    Cons

    Unfair growth opportunities to a few. The 20 high profile in Austin that HP complained about are an example and the further showing the same by picking their own. Growth limited by who you know and not what you know. You Don't need a technical degree or be a poor developer and you can be a manager or a leader.

    Advice to Management

    There will be no innovation if you hire all the old timers again.
    Break the growth based on connections. Stop making failed developers and PM your leaders.
    Do inventory of how many IT leaders have technical degree or developed technology in recents years or can write code or ever wrote code

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues, friendly and generally courteous interactions at meetings, work-life balance is quite good and gives you flexibility with work hours.

    Cons

    Management can be hierarchical and some departments can be bureaucratic resulting in delayed decision making. Career growth prospects are slim to none and promotions are often made based on whom you know rather than what you can do.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people objectively based on capabilities instead of subjective criteria
