Have to work for it

Manager (Current Employee)
Warren, MI (US)

I have been working at General Motors full-time for more than 3 years

ProsManagment rewards talent, and fosters an environment that thrives on teamwork and relationship building. You do have to put in long hours on occassion, but this is a company with endless possibilities, including rotations outside of the States, several legal business entities the size of fortune 500 companies, and cross-functional experiences.

ConsHR still has an old-school mentatility and often fights upward movement for employees that are "too inexperienced" (e.g. too young), and still pushes a seniority-based instead of talent-based retention model. Management fights the battle, and often wins, but still difficult to manage a business when you cannot make the decisions that need to be made on the personnel side.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
