I have been working at General Motors full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Managment rewards talent, and fosters an environment that thrives on teamwork and relationship building. You do have to put in long hours on occassion, but this is a company with endless possibilities, including rotations outside of the States, several legal business entities the size of fortune 500 companies, and cross-functional experiences.

Cons

HR still has an old-school mentatility and often fights upward movement for employees that are "too inexperienced" (e.g. too young), and still pushes a seniority-based instead of talent-based retention model. Management fights the battle, and often wins, but still difficult to manage a business when you cannot make the decisions that need to be made on the personnel side.

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

    Pros

    Solid pay and benefits, some good people who know their business. Some of those people are trying to turn the company around, but it is a big challenge in light of the entrenched bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Bizarre leadership focus too often; inconsistent and frankly too low performance expectations. There are too many mindless bureaucrats within the organization that plod along, working to avoid any responsibility. Too often, it seems like the main objective is to avoid making any decision that might mean responsibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many times "team" is used as a cover for lack of individual responsibility and accountability.
