    Greatest Research Lab

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Bangalore

    ProsI had 8 years of service when I was laid off. The company provided an opportunity to do fundamental research which no other company could afford to. There were experts in the company who were revered world-wide. It was a workplace of great standard, unlimited freedom, terrific facilities and invaluable colleagues.

    ConsWe could not last in the face of ever increasing competition. I wish we had sold more cars in India to sustain ourselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe closure of India Science Lab is a great loss to GM which the company will not realize now. What more could be expected from a management alien to Automotive Industry?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent in its category

    Manager (Current Employee) Bangalore

    ProsTransparency
    Ethics&Values
    Seasoned policies
    Growth path
    Rewards talent
    Array of functions for internal job rotations
    Earnest efforts in performance management and salaries marked to meet market trends every year

    ConsIf one is not career minded, can still continue with no value addition to self or company
    Apparently it has taken forever to fix canteen quality, indeed getting better
    You cannot get to go abroad often,(thanks to every travel needs a very very valid justification) - travel not used as a motivational tool here, so each one has an opinion around this esp. with Indian way of looking at travels to make extra money

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat progress in the years, a little more to go in terms of policies that matter, on track though!
    Would have had as many pros if this were a few years ago, but what retained me is there was always an honest effort to make things better.Can get back to the "dark ages" if the mgmt. loses track and vision.
    Try getting even higher challenging work profiles, it is a good mix right now, but a little more complex work can add to more quality employees in the workplace.

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