I have been working at General Motors full-time (less than an 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.)

    I worked at General Motors full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    reasonable pay, facilities are a plus, local mgmt is interested. benefits are still good, although they have decreased since bankruptcy.

    Cons

    top mgmt changing constantly since bankruptcy, top mgmt has pressure for their program of the day, existing employees stuck with everybody's an idiot image.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to employees, and then make your moves. don't paint everyone with the same brush. Keep an open mind to past successes and failures and study them.
