    I have been working at General Motors (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Spins from GM! Could make up to $225 per unit aside from your dealership commission.

    Cons

    During the months where they offer "Supplier for everyone" you will make a flat commission from your dealer. You have to sell the vehicle for invoice even if you can make gross you are forced to sell it for invoice............

    Advice to Management

    Depends on the dealer you work for.


  3. "Overall Work Atmosphere"

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity to learn so much from co-workers even if you are not in the same department. There are a lot of team building activities throughout the year

    Cons

    There is no room for growth. Job security is always something you will be thinking about if you are not the person that like going from job to job. The job titles does not match the work that you would actually be doing.

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

    Pros

    Good entrepreneurial spirit. Team collaboration. IT systems.

    Cons

    I was terminated 1.5 months into employment involuntary, for a completely distorted political cleanup effort. The company is ok, however, being its size - you must play the interests of your department, even if it is against the broader General Motors standpoint.

    Recruiting is outsourced with IBM. However, the process to hire is relatively streamlined.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a chance. Don't terminate to avoid justifying a severance package expense, paperwork, nor shifting the employee relationship at the benefit of manager's view of controlling their situation matters. I am not particularly one to hold grudges, but the reasons for my termination were totally executive's cleaning up their involvement in a messy situation. At my families expense.

    I worked at General Motors full-time

    Pros

    Hours are good and management flexible when it comes to personal issues.

    Cons

    The jobs are all higher level, the detail is outsourced so you don't get to work on detail to much. It's more of a higher level review. As a result learning is limited.

    I worked at General Motors as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the communication team is very professional and friendly. They gave great feedback and very patient.

    Cons

    They are not new to New York, but still cannot blend into the local culture deeply. Even though they have an open mind, but still move slowly.

    I worked at General Motors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great finance rotation program, fast-track program, premier "MBA shop"

    Cons

    Company devaluing TO prominence, "analysis paralysis" mentality

    Advice to Management

    Move program back to NY -- key attraction feature of program. Prevent stagnation both in terms of rotation opportunities as well as career progression. Keep program attractive for MBA's and do not dilute. Compensation needs to be competitive!
