    I have been working at General Motors

    Pros

    Good people, professional, caring. It is home to some of the most committed people to create the best cars in the world.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic. Upper management lost their love for cars and what they mean for the consumer. It's just a car. But I'd say. IT IS MY CAR. It is hugely important in my life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication channels because news, issues, and solutions don't travel all the way up. Functions are territorial and its management protective of their turf. There is time for truly committed management that is humble and believes in the company above their own well fare.

    I have been working at General Motors

    Pros

    GM can be a great place to work with unique opportunities, creative design problems, wonderful people, and a good balance of work to life. Most mid level management are good people to work for in your functional area. Salary is typically good to better than most, and the benefits are top notch as they have always been.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy in product development rivals the government. The rigidness to standards and procedures can be overwhelming. The manufacturing side of engineering whines more than a motor with a bad bearing. Most manufacturing/assembly personnel are very unwilling to try anything new or push the envelope. Most of upper level management is out of touch with what is really going on in the new programs. There is little to no opportunity for advancement unless you find it yourself - and even the HR and management will tell you that as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote those who deserve it, not those who kiss ass and ask for it.
