No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great pay, work hours seem to be flexible. Okay benefits, everyone has access to company cars. Reallocation package is nice.

Cons

Very unstructured, everyone here is new so there really aren't many people to go to for help with BASIC things. I'm fresh out of college I want to be surrounded by people that can help me grown not a ton of other college hires. Too many people here lost and confused. If they offer you a job after one interview be cautious.

Advice to Management

Slow down. The waves of people being hired are too large, and the increments are too close together. This results in a ton of lost and confused people.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, quick decision making, team atmosphere due to great manager and fellow supervisors

    Cons

    Cut throat mentality, lack work/life balance, old school mentality, slow to adapt, lean in the wrong areas of the company, lazy HR department

    Advice to Management

    Focus on recruiting and retaining top talent. Ditch the old school mentality and realize that top talent doesn't need you. Better companies are working harding than you to get the best students out there. Great companies are run by great people.
