GM is not family oriented they don't care if you have to pick up a child after school or at daycare they will just walk up to last minute and inform you have to stay another 4 hrs because a 2nd shift person did come in.

Much too unstable for me, management isn't very great Especially the union side, they are very unhelpful and seem to just be money hungry and in it for themselves.

Senior Program Manager, Brazil SPED eSocial (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 1, 2017
GM IT was a great place to work as a Project Manager. The management encouraged a culture of collaboration and teamwork with the life work balance goal. The Atlanta office had various companies sell lunch almost daily. Open work areas with conference rooms and collaboration areas all through the facility. There was never a lack of company and management sponsored events. Great place, great company, great experience.
Pros
Management, Benefits, Culture, Work Environment

Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 1, 2017
No room to move unless want to go to Michigan and not even much there. Coworkers are great but management leaves alot to be desired. Not all bad but if highly driven beware.

good pay but you might as well live there.
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) –  Wentzville, MOSeptember 29, 2017
8-9 hour days with mandatory over time. The pay is good or at least used to be but chances of getting hired withen the next decade are slim to none. Management wants to kill you and the union is useless, just awful turf war between two gangs that are both wrong and just want to ruin the other.
Pros
pay
Cons
everything else

Focus on the task and it'll be fine
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Wentzville, MOSeptember 29, 2017
You start as a temp, bouncing from job to job, you're basically the work horse for the company. The pay is decent as a temp but you just gotta shut up, keep your head down and work to become a seniority. (approx 8 months). As seniority the union has you. The union is solid. They work to get you good pay, and they generally get it. Great benefits, and honestly if you avoid any an all management its peaceful. That said, avoid management. Management is the stress, to them you are a number, replaceable piece of trash that failed in life so hard that now you work for them, and they will let you know it. They do a poor job of running the plant, then blame the lowest man on the totem pole (you). If you're good with that, you'll do fine.
Pros
Pays well, good Benefits, easy work if a little exhausting.
Cons
Bad management, Long hours, Shifting schedules.

Stuck in its old ways
Design Engineer, Autonomous and Active Safety (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MISeptember 28, 2017
GM is moving in the right direction as far as cars are concerned and its exciting to work with EVs and Autonomous Vehicles, but much of the management is stuck managing the same way that the company has been for 50 years. This just doesn't work for the new workforce and doesn't mesh well with millennials.
Pros
Work life balance. Decent Pay. Good matching and benifits
Cons
Management sucks. Nobody excited about the products

Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INSeptember 28, 2017
Typically poor communication, lack of advancement, and no culture. The jobs are extremely difficult and there are a lot of forced saturdays. I would not recommend for someone just starting out if they already have a family and need life/work balance.
