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

Pros

GM will teach you a tremendous amount regarding surviving and prospering in a changing environment. The experience will harden you and force self-reliance.

Cons

GM does not consistently adhere to its core values.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

GM needs to finish the job of "cleaning house" -- As long as the pre-bankruptcy executive leaders are in power (with only a few exceptions), GM will continue to sustain business as usual. Intense focus needs to be placed on building automotive manufacturing capability and intellectual capital to encourage innovation and creativity that will bring on youth engagement and excitement around the GM brand.

    Pros

    GM is a great company for providing opportunities and helping to develop your skills. They have good benefits and pay competitively.

    Cons

    GM tends to abuse their best employees by giving them the toughest jobs as their reward for doing good work, since they are the only ones that they can trust to get the job done. They struggle to differentiate between good and bad employees and treat both as equals as far as benefits are concerned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GM needs to continue to flatten the organization because there is still too much bureaucracy in the company to be lean and move quickly.
