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

Pros

If you are focused on command and control, your best friend and new boss just relocated from New Delhi, and you care a lot more about politics than quality this is the place for you.

Cons

Politics trump value. Promotion is based
on connections (I.e. Be from India or else). Culture is devolving from bouncing back from bankruptcy to repeating the behaviors that led to bankruptcy. Want to learn from the people that bankrupted the world's largest company? They are all still here, fighting for control and winning.

Advice to Management

GM is an iconic American company and there are talented people who would do anything to restore GM to what it should be. Stop letting politics trump value and refocus on supporting real innovation. Nobody wins if you just become Tata Motors 2.

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

    Pros

    GM offers a competitive compensation package, as well as a good vacation and holiday package. GM is a workplace of choice, so there are opportunities to change positions.

    Cons

    GM has lots of employees, so it's easy to get lost in the fray. Some people are still bitter about GM eliminating pensions, and moving to 401k.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is okay 15 dollars an hour. Okay benefits.

    Cons

    Can be back breaking labor. The union is horrible and doesn't care about tier 2 employees. If your going to spring hill tn then make sure after you get past your 90 days to get out of the union.

    Advice to Management

    Think about profits instead of your egos.
