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

    Pros

    GM has decent benefits, good training, and provides more holidays off then most fortune companies. I work with a lot of great fun people. Not a stressful environment; work-life balance is good.

    Cons

    The compensation is average - they offer use of corporate cars as compensation/benefits.

    GM is slow to get anything done. Approval after approval after approval- meetings after meetings after meetings without actually getting somewhere.


  2. "Excellent Career for Intellectually Inclined People!"

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, challenging work tasks, learn something new everyday, usage of the latest and greatest technology set. Ability to drive a new car four times a year. Great benefits, even better 401K plan and very competitive salary/bonus structure. All the software development training one could ever ask for along with a hefty tuition reimbursement package!

    Cons

    Considering the sheer size of GM causes lags in getting things approved/accomplished. Lack of career direction. Warren Tech Centers looks as though we are in 1950's.

    Advice to Management

    Conceptualize a career planning road map for employees
