Challenges you to work at your best
Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Warren, MIJuly 20, 2018
Exciting projects to work on to drive the business! I always felt that I had autonomy in anything that I worked on. Management is always willing to listen to new ideas.

Chaotic Place
Quality Lead (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 19, 2018
No proper direction from management and no sense of ownership. Middle management is lost in the power struggle and favoritism game and not identifying true talent.

Each day is lost in several meeting figuring out the true requirement and people just argue argue in the meetings with no outcome and ownership.
Pros
Good Pay package, health benefits...
Cons
No work life balance and terrible work culture

Hard on supervisors
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYJuly 19, 2018
Seems like a lovely environment at first until you realize it is another "Good ole boys club" and if you just want to do your job and go home they will literally single you out. The hours can be almost abusive and they will use insane company policies as an excuse to corner you or even get rid of you if you don't fit in their club. The union isn't the worst part, it's the management. Great people working for you as well. I will miss my team.
Pros
money
Cons
everything else

Great place to work.
Manufacturing Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSJuly 18, 2018
General Motors was a great place to be employed.

During my time at General Motors the Plant Manager had a lot of control and power. That person had the full responsibility of the plant. Depending upon the organization which one worked, depended upon the Plant Manager poole. One could work for one organization today, and another organization the following day.
Pros
Stable workforce
Cons
Fluid Plant Manager position.

Refuse to address major issues
Developer (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 17, 2018
They have every 2 years employee feed back surveys .
The last two were not what they wante and they have not addressed any issues.
Employee engagements is low.
Training is really bad
Moving people to new projects and expecting they learne the new code in very short turn around time.
They have this cult like philosophy called Drive To Great it is a cross between dyanetics and the process church of the final judgment. Or Anthony Robins.
Dangerous thinking and they build cars .
Pros
You can find better jobs in Austin
Cons
Managers are bad, corporate culture is cult like

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.

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.
