    Former Employee - Senior Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I worked at General Motors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, employee-focused culture, easy to get noticed by management if you are hard-working and come up with creative solutions to problems, very good exposure to different functions across the globe if you have the aptitude and show the right attitude.

    Cons

    not very fast paced, hierarchical organizational structure, many times reactive rather than proactive, need to be good at marketing yourself to sell ideas to the management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better screening during hiring, should encourage employees to look at the big picture and come up with long-term strategic solutions - this would also make the organization more than proactive
