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

Pros

Opportunities abound with the many sites in the United States and throughout the world. There are both small and large sites to suit the desired environment.

Cons

Managers are rotated every three years. As soon as you begin to gain respect with your current manager, they get rotated out and you have to start over with someone new.

Advice to Management

Let employees move to new positions. Not fair to keep a person in their job for 10+ years because nobody else knows how to do it.

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

    Pros

    Large company that offers a wide array of career opportunities. Excellent benefits, compensation and vacation package. Employees are extremely knowledgable and intelligent. A lot of the engineers that work here are truly elite.

    Cons

    Slow to change, there is a genuine belief that "change is bad." While very knowledgable and productive, the workforce is on the older side. With most employees in their 40's and 50's, it makes it difficult for young professionals to network for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Open up the office, make the workplace more lively and exciting.

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

    Pros

    Very good pay and a company that is definitely headed in the right direction.

    Cons

    Because we living in the age of downsizing, a lot of my friend left the company before they were ready. Also all new hourly employee will work for a fraction of the compensation that we received years earlier.
