    I have been working at General Motors (GM) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working for a company that has a mission for zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion by creating technology for electric autonomous vehicels. Lots of opportunities to improve your skillset, take on new roles and innovate on technology. Work life balance is great. Like all jobs there are times where you will have to put in extra time to get work done and meet deadlines, but overall work life balance is great.... Benefits are great including time off, insurance and bonus.

    Cons

    Culture suffers for a number of reasons. One, Executive and Senior Leadership come from years of working Fortune 100 companies with old ideas of "work from work" and driving innovation on antiquated metrics developed 30 years ago. There is a struggle for GM IT to identify themselves as an innovative technology shop due to old school attitudes of GM Business, we build combustion engines for brands that don't spark... demand.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at General Motors (GM) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits including time off. The potential bonus payout is very competitive for the industry. Depending on the function, there's a lot of opportunity given how large the organization is.

    Cons

    The size of the organization can also make it difficult to get noticed. It's pretty obvious that those hired into the TRACK program have a big advantage over those who are not. Also given the typical industry cycle, layoffs are a fairly common practice...

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of those who are high performers and want to advance their careers
