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

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Senior Management trying to move forward

    Cons

    Many Middle and low level management people have a very warped sense of reality and refuse to do what's good for the company, they are only focused on them selves and the "good old boys" around them.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in More outsiders and ween the company of complacent mangers who offer nothing but road blocks

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

    Pros

    Good benefits like any other big corporations, 2 weeks holiday in december, and hours of no work and getting paid. Way to go GM!!

    Cons

    Unethical management from the bosses to HR except if you are an ex Dell employee. Would not recommend a young professional to start his/her career here as it lacks direction in every thing including the traning, no room for growth especially if u have a masters degree, bad management in everything including IT projects undertaking. Choose wisely, do not be swaed with the 6 months salary review, is a lie and promised training is a joke especially if management does not want you to follow standards

    Advice to Management

    Please pay close attention to the innovation center in Austin it is a place that has a lot of politics and unethical behavior openly displayed which will inhibit talent growth among young professionals
