Approves of CEO

I worked at General Motors full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Making better cars and putting the customer first has improved greatly since bankruptcy. Great non-management co-workers. Quickly becoming a major technology company vs just an automaker.

Cons

Very poor leadership. Management actively tries to keep down individual contributors instead of fostering their growth. Mistreatment and retaliation against employees who speak up is common.

Advice to Management

Eat a piece of humble pie and be thankful that GM still exists. If it wasn't for the employees that work hard everyday, you would be on the street. Treat them with the respect they deserve.

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

    Pros

    Very dedicated staff, fantastic products, great flexibility in work life balance, bonuses have been great the last few years, very low turnover of employees

    Cons

    Still not obvious why some people are management. Promotions are help out like carrots but never seem to materialize. A few managers have no business leading people. Beauracracy still hampers quick movements

    Advice to Management

    A lot of your employees would work harder if they saw their efforts would actually advance their careers, so many hold out on efforts
