Average Pay (although overtime opportunities are good)
Site buildings are terrible
Catering facilities awful

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

    Pros

    1) CEO is doing a great job 2) changes are in the works but it's like turning the Titanic...takes time 3) good pay and benefits 4) global auto industry is very interesting 5) injection of new blood and innovation 6) opportunities to change roles

    Cons

    1) some areas are still focused on the tactical vs. strategic 2) still lots of old school mentality and entitlement "I've been here 30 years and should be promoted" 3) lack of financial accountability at the leadership level 4) workforce complacency 5) highly competitive industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Goals should be measurable and tied to financial outcomes. Leadership needs to be more strategic-thinkers than tactical and data driven.
