No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Good benefits but don't save with GMs401K plan until you have been there through your first year with good reviews. After the first year of decent reviews, your job is pretty safe and you can move to another position. You can't get the matching 401K money until you've been there at least three years!

Cons

Highly political. Long hours, weekends. Directors do not review poor Managers with employees and then protect the employee once they get a negative report. Management is protected; employees are expendable.

Advice to Management

GM might be headed back down the bankruptcy path again if you refuse to pay attention to employee opinions, ESPECIALLY new emplolyees. They will give you the straight story about their team and managers. They were hired because they are highly intelligent. Give them the benefit of the doubt and interview them often.

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

    Pros

    I am paid fairly, treated with respect and consideration of my personal life. The new GM is more focused and determined, possibly because we were able to get a glimpse at the grave. I recently attended an auto show and as I strolled through it, I was very proud of the products that GM has to offer. The fleet of Cadillacs are awesome and the new Impala is gorgeous.

    Cons

    I do not have any negative comments.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to emphasize on quality and people. It is paying off and will continue to do so.
