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

    Pros

    Has all of the different types of IT jobs under one roof. What may take several different companies to obtain the various IT skills and experiences throughout the industry can be done right in house.

    Cons

    Not a lot of institutional knowledge was documented. Due to years of perform supplier dependencies. Processes and doctrine has consistently changed.

    Advice to Management

    Globalize more processes. Focus on creating technology and process Centers of Excellence. Create a standard knowledge management repository.

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

    Pros

    General Motors was a great place to go right out of college! I accepted a position as a software developer and ended up working in Computer Aided Engineering applications within the GPD area.Flexible hours, reasonable expectations, and a great place to learn.

    Cons

    Slow moving and old feeling! Not a bad thing, but its also not a place filled with passion or excitement! This is both a pro and a con depending on the person I suppose.

    Advice to Management

    From my little window into the company, everything was pretty great! Keep hiring college students!
