You can work as hard as you want; they'll let you.
Manager (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INMay 16, 2015
Pros: Good benefits package
Cons: 80% of all problems are in management's arena.
Great Company to work for... GM moves too slow and is lethargic in keeping pace with industry. Too conservative and unless it was invented here by upper management it all too often doesn't get implemented. Politics is the cancer of GM; it always has been. I have made GM millions of dollars over the years however I saw less than 1 thousandths of 1 % of it.

Work environment for management can be challanging.
Supervisor of Materials and Stamping (Former Employee), Kansas City, KSMay 16, 2015
Pros: Good location, convenient parking, good pay, and the majority of the employees
Cons: Personality plays a significant role in how well/fast/far you advance.
GM is filled with fantastic people but their management lacks the human element. Management is confrontational and prefers discipline over encouragement. I enjoyed every aspect of my employment but I have a very different management strategy.

An exciting place for a car nut to work, and to develop professional skills
District Sales Manager (Former Employee), Richland, WAMay 15, 2015
Pros: Fun vehicles, sales territory.
Cons: Sometimes unrealistic sales quotas.
The freedom to "try new things" made this a terriffic place to work. Getting to be around new product, product launches, and to work with decision makers is very satisfying.

I love my job
Sr. Six Sigma Specialist (Current Employee), Detroit, MIMay 15, 2015
I currently love my job and position with GM.

I would love to be utilized for what I was hired to do. I was hired to be the Sr. Six Sigma specialist (Master Black Belt for the Call Center organization) but what I have been doing for the last several months is documenting standard work.

I am looking to be more active in leading projects, teaching lean sigma and mentoring people and a company in the methodology.

Operator (Former Employee), Fort Wayne, INMay 11, 2015
Before the beginning of a shift id inspect the various tools needed for the job. aligning doors required us to loosen multiple hinges and raise or lower door(s) and also inspect for damage or discoloration to paint. co-workers were friendly and easy to work with and learn from. the hardest part was doing your job while keeping up with the trucks moving down the assembly line.

very efficient place to work with a sad closing
Production Team Leader (Former Employee), Moraine, OHMay 6, 2015
Pros: excellent wages, health benefits
Cons: long hours, heavy lifting
The typical work day was usually busy and included different tasks daily. I enjoyed working alongside my supervisor as a team leader and learning new more effective ways of meeting safety and production goals. My co-workers were very hard working people. The hardest part of the job was the physical aspects of lifting parts sometimes up to 45 to 50 lbs. The most enjoyable part of my job was feeling like I worked with my second family to build a quality product we could all be proud of at the end of the day.

Worst place I have ever worked
Corporate Risk Management (Former Employee), Detroit, MIApril 30, 2015
Pros: Great benefit package
Cons: Bad Management
Management is lazy and rely heavily on contractors to do all of the work. I was not challenged enough in this position. Being a "go getter" threatens management and you may be targeted for doing too good because you make the others look bad. The compensation and benefits package it wonderful though. If you can hold your head up high in an environment like that, go for it because the benefits might be worth all the trouble.
