I worked at General Motors full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great pay and benefits
Lots of opportunities
Career Advancements

Cons

GM is not as people oriented as they used to be, just a business
Benefits are not as good as they used to be

Advice to Management

GM was broke in 70's, Saturn was an opportunity for GM to improve people, product and process and be competitive with the Japanense auto makers. GM never appreciated the knowledge gained from that experience and never lived up to the values and mission of the corporation

    Pros

    good benefits and strong resources

    Cons

    the leadership culture inhibits job satisfaction, they are too clicky and need to be more results-oriented than they currently are.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership culture change is needed, needs new blood or ideas, should not be so inbred.
