    I have been working at General Motors full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A lot of great people there as well as great resources. Once you learn how to network within the company there are many experts there that are more than willing to help. Also if you're willing to live in Michigan or move, there are lot's of options to move around to new/different jobs.

    Cons

    Its a very big company and still learning how to become leaner and faster. They try to be more efficient but having "standardized global processes" ... but this can also make things slower and/or stiffle creativity and resourcefulness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to unleash your strong performers more ... process focus is great but you also need to let your experts do things their way a bit more.

    Large company that provides great benefits with many diverse opportunities, but restraints of a large bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Compensation is on par with the industry.
    Many different career opportunities for a growing or ever changing career path.
    Great access to automotive benefits such as the opportunity to drive the vehicles, access to service documents, and more.

    Cons

    Work environment can be impersonal.
    Job Application process is impersonal.
    Engineers do more project management than engineering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities for Engineers to engineer and apply their skill set and be creative; align employees with careers that take advantage of their skill sets and career goals.
    Transparency and interaction with employees is of great importance in retaining and encouraging the best talent.
