GM - the story of the perfect love hate relationship

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at General Motors

ProsGM 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementPromote those who deserve it, not those who kiss ass and ask for it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
