    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great compensation and benefits for the area, low cost of living, insane job security

    Cons

    union regulations effect everybody, no real meaningful work, forced lateral movement constantly, all leadership came from the same contractors before the insourcing/bailout

    Advice to Management

    hire in new young talent and actually retain them, give them meaningful work, and get rid of all the dead weight. stop wasting money for no value added.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been at GM for over a year and have had a great experience. Leadership at all levels is stepping out of prior mindsets that US auto companies were criticized for. You know something is changing when every employee with 20+yrs exp is talking about how the company is changing in positive ways. Better designed vehicles. Safer Vehicles. More technology in the vehicles. More technology in planning and manufacturing the vehicles. More fiscal responsibility as a company. More in tune with the customer.

    Cons

    GM is a big company and while that provides endless opportunity it does narrow job roles. You probably won't "wear as many hats" as you would at a smaller company. It creates great opportunities if it fits who you are.

    Advice to Management

    Continue in the direction that you're headed.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Strong management support (mentors, advisors, etc.)
    - Many employee engagement groups/advocacy groups (LBGT, African-American, etc.)
    - Many different jobs within one functional area (Engineering, Finance, etc.)
    - Good benefits and competitive pay for the area
    - Networking is required to be successful, so meeting people is easy when you work with many different people

    Cons

    - Large organization can have bureaucracy and be slow moving
    - Networking is required to be successful with some job roles, can be difficult for some
    - GM is acronym laden, and acronyms can be different between functional areas (Engineering, Finance, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Continue the human capital investments you're making in employees
    Continue exploration in new technologies, it makes GM seem a fresh company, not a century old dinosaur

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

    Pros

    Great benefits while you are there, HSA contribution, 401k matching, bonuses

    Cons

    No upward mobility or chances for promotion Say that the college new hire program is a development program, but it is impossible to change positions and odds are you will be put on shift work

    Advice to Management

    don't lie and say college new hire program is rotational and when you force the new hire to go find a new job outside of the company dont send them to collections for vacation they never used.
