IT Developers/Programmers Should Avoid
Senior UI Developer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 15, 2018
Business culture heavy. Development and innovation take a back seat to deadlines. Leadership consistently over-promises deliverables to business partners without first consulting development teams. Look for an actual tech company if you want to work somewhere that is open to using new technologies and methodologies.

Fork Truck Operator (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MIJuly 12, 2018
If you work hard you get to help the people who won't.
No opportunity for advancement of any kind, and the union will continuously bring people back that were fired no matter the reason.

Strategic Execution Industrial Engineer (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INJuly 11, 2018
The roles and responsibilities are executed in a well planned manner for efficient work. I learned the importance of planning and execution in the plant and the production standards. Management strived for greater output and achieved it by following the company motto.

Good for pay
Elected Union Representative (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, KSJuly 11, 2018
Good money, miserable life. The people and environment are very immature. It has a high population of low education, and those are the people that create the most issues. Work hard or find another job, if the foundation on the floor.

Seeking Opportunities
Java Developer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 5, 2018
A typical workday is 9-5. The corporate culture is in the process of transforming into an innovation-centric concept. New employees receive job specific training involving corporate induction.

Management is a mixed group of traditional corporate leadership and up-and-coming managers. Professional development varies from manager to manager. Opportunity within the company is very poorly announced.

Hardest part of the job: Business units have little to no concept of development complexity. Requirement trade offs often end up taking over a month.

Most enjoyable part of the job: Working in IT Innovations is a new puzzle to solve every day. The work/life balance is really great.

Advanced Technical Support (Former Employee) –  Warren, MIJuly 5, 2018
A typical day at work is putting out technical fires on the phone and ensuring end users that you are working on their issue as promptly as possible to get them back in business mode. I had opportunity to learn about various General Motors business apps, various techniques to resolve technical issues and to implement workarounds for temporary solutions. The position affords you to gain a great deal of knowledge about the manufacturing business as well as interfacing with the vendors and suppliers. The workplace culture is amazing, being able to work so closely with so many people on so many levels, backgrounds and countries is amazing. The hardest part about the job is sitting for long periods and developing the ability to not let people push your button. The most enjoyable part is when you get a customer who really appreciates your hard work.
Pros
Great opportunity to learn a variety of software, apps, technology
Cons
sitting for a long time

Level 1 Incident Agent (Former Employee) –  Warren, MIJuly 5, 2018
Very low pay when compare to the same job somewhere else. We're very busy sometimes. My team leader's very helpful. A leader had no knowledge most of the time.
The best thing is to help users around the world.
We help each other like a family.

Chance to work with cutting edge technology
Operations Specialist (Former Employee) –  Flint, MIJuly 3, 2018
Typical day included local morning system health checks, morning IT meetings to review open and closed help desk tickets for the day (trouble shooting is required for servers support, network support, PC etc..).

Job requires IT support to maintain IT hardware inventory, build PC's, plant radio's, plant workstations, plant PC's, printers. Review quality processes. Work on multiple projects while multi-tasking with other responsibilities. Goal is to keep the plant running.

Workplace culture can be stressful. Sometimes, IT support must deal with non IT individuals who are not computer literate. Hardest part of the job is keeping site and remote customers satisfied while working on multiple projects at the same time. Open trouble tickets must be kept at a minimum.

While working at GM, I received the opportunity to learn many things over the years that allowed me to succeed at my trade and add to my experience.

Local management are good people under a great deal of stress due to limited IT resources available to keep the plants running.

Most enjoyable part of the job is the opportunity to work with good people using the latest cutting edge hardware and software.
Pros
Fantastic year-end profit sharing checks and good salary
Cons
Difficult to manage a good home and work place balance
