    Pros

    Advice to Management

    Management needs restructuring. Design group managers should have knowledge of what they oversee. Very bad! GM is a company that wants to be seen as a tech company rather than just an automaker, they have a long, long road ahead of them. Far too many dinosaurs/old way of thinking people.
