Approves of CEO

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

Pros

High Salaries, Access to Training and Certification, Love working with cars, opportunities to travel to scenic Austin for business trips

Cons

In the middle of IT transition. Communication is poor. Culture has gone from cooperative to cutthroat. We are spending more time on metrics and department operation than we are on helping build cars and trucks.

Advice to Management

Do what makes sense

    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
