    Pros

    General Motors is a great place to work. When writing reviews about such a large company, users need to understand that one person can have it very different than another. It all depends on your specific organization, manager, and etc. I hope to only include elements that apply to all GM employees. GM has a fair and transparent stance on many things including compensation and job opportunities. That impresses me. Salaried employees are given information on their current salary vs the market rate, what level they are, etc. The job opportunity awareness program gives employees a shot of the hundreds of jobs available any given day.

    Cons

    The IT organization is going the micro-management route with tickets, time monitoring, etc. Makes you feel like you are not trusted.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment never a dull moment, constantly changing and dynamic, a lot of young employees that challenge and keep the motivation high.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is off more work than life, bureaucratic decision process (it's a large corporation not surprising) but still a lot of improvement area, traditional leadership style that can a times lower motivation instead of increasing it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should focus more on training of employees, not only through experience but with specialized courses in order to improve knowledge of staff and update concepts ad trends of the industry and area of expertise.
