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

Pros

Good benefit. GM treats their employee fair. Many holidays, in general you don't have to spend more than 8 hours per day, lay back. There are some interesting projects.

Cons

A big number of people coming from DELL - HP. This leads to many issues, if you know what I mean.

Hiring people not based on their skill set, but on other things. Behavioral interview questions will not help you to find most qualified candidates.

Folks from Detroit are used to deal with contractors, slow to adapt. Getting good business requirements are very difficult.

Advice to Management

Why employee has to pay for coffee?

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

    Pros

    8000 in tuition reimbursement. Salaries are on the higher end of the low-midpoint range.

    Cons

    Building is overcrowded. Not enough bathrooms, especially for women. Things are always broken and no one is in a rush to fix them. Trash is barely picked up. Bugs. No cafeteria. Prides itself on being a "start up environment", but does not understand the meaning of the phrase. They think that start up means that they don't have to provide any amenities to their employees. Working from home is frowned upon. If you want employees to be in the office everyday, you must provide normal amenities to them (coffee cups, stirrers, cafeteria, bathroom facilities, clean facilities, enough parking, etc.). Counterparts in Michigan do not listen - they just try to boss people around and blame others for their mistakes, instead of fixing them.

    Advice to Management

    Truly embrace the word innovation. Allow your talented employees to shine and bring new ideas to life in the company. Attrition is high, especially in the Georgia Innovation Center. They are being ran away by too much bureacracy, too many rules, too much focus on the appearance of work and not actually getting the work done, and too much expectation to do the jobs of multiple people without any appreciation or acknowledgement. Listen to the experts that you hired. We are not contractors, therefore, the expectation for us to work like the contractors who were there before without the hourly compensation they were receiving needs to end. There are several other employers in the Atlanta area who pay more and provide a much more satisfying work experience.
