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

Pros

Excellent pay for a student (plus paid housing), real responsibilities and opportunities, great opportunities for networking, professional environment, and a phenomenal learning experience.

Cons

I have no complaints yet. I know that people holding other positions all have things to say about union injustices, et cetera, but in my position my experience has been all good.

Advice to Management

Tell me how I'm doing! As a student, I could use more feedback.

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

    Pros

    Make some adequate products, sometimes get it right. Some good job and advancement opportunities. Lots of different areas and people to get involved with. Good paycheck.

    Cons

    Engineering, accounting, manufacturing, testing, development, validation, etc., processes and procedures are inadequate, incomplete, disjointed, ignored, non-existent, out-dated, not communicated adequately,...
    Poor sense of community, comraderie, commitment to company and co-workers, indifference from management, lack of trust and confidence going both ways.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of this matrix management style that it took 14 years to stumble into, nobody knows who owes what assignment, hand-offs are dropped, much shuffling, much information and time is lost, many errors are made on changing assumptions and talent.

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

    Pros

    Steady work, busy days, Great product programs, Easy to follow process and great co-workers. Clean office environment with up-to-date computer software. Paid holidays and vacations!

    Cons

    Leadership is too top heavy, Company vision and goals are unrealistic to market demand. No over-time pay. Flex-time is a joke if your not in the "In crowd". Seniority also a joke. Basically if you have no one really looking out for you, your left out. Same Good ol' boys tactics from the past.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, Be more open to change
