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

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Company has history of solid HR practices to allow employees to pursue a self-directed and structured career path.

    Cons

    Opportunities and new jobs, positions possible only after first year orientation and development period is complete.

    All technical resources were formerly outsourced, so company is new to having technical skills on-board. Thus, be wary when you sign on that you get the top possible level (numbered 5, 6, 7, 8) and corresponding salary. If you don't negotiate for top possible level, you may find yourself holding deep documented experience and training in a skill, for example, databases, and working at same role and level as someone who asks out loud in a technical meeting "now, can you tell me, what is a database?" People are being hired based on who they know, not what they know.

    Advice to Management

    Assign criteria for documented technical proficiency to be hired in at each level, instead of relying on subjective "Lominger" characteristics. These characteristics are especially subjective when hiring managers are part of the same old-boys network as the target employees. Speaking professionally and personal salesmanship are good traits to screen for, but the organization will need people with technical skills to deploy complex solutions flawlessly into production.
