I have been working at General Motors full-time for less than a year

Pros

Good pay relative to the position.

Great vacation package; I think new hires get 3 weeks plus week of Xmas

Good benefits: health care is pretty cheap, 4% 401k matching, annual profit-sharing.

Cons

If you have a brain, some of the inefficiencies will drive you crazy.

Promotions can be based on friendships/relationships more than merit and ability.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Implement a mechanism for employees to submit suggestions. (The link for suggestions on the internal company home page is a dead link that leads to Page Not Found, which really sums it up.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As more people move to Urban areas and use more public transportation, it may be a good strategy globally to look into transforming the Identity of GM into a company that specializes in transportation and not just Automotive.
