Planner (Former Employee) –  Warren, MIDecember 10, 2017
I had a really good experience at GM. I found the culture authentic and collaborative. I got to work on large global projects that developed me professionally and personally. The work-life balance in my team was great. As is the case with many large organizations, there is a level of bureaucracy involved and depending on your situation, it can be difficult to pass decisions.

Cut throat
Group Lead - Injection Molding (Former Employee) –  Spring Hill, TNDecember 8, 2017
While to work was demanding, it was not too bad compared to the wages. But, the management team is dishonest, overly harsh, and will lie to you every day. Watch your back at all times.
Pros
Wages and benefits
Cons

General Motors was a great place to work!
Occupational Nurse - Interim Health Care (Former Employee) –  General motors, Moraine, OhioDecember 8, 2017
I worked through an employment agency, which sent me to work in their clinic. The workplace culture was different in a factory setting. I enjoyed the work, just so much to learn about occupational nursing and safety regulations. This was a great learning experience.

Good Job
Line Worker / Temp hire (Former Employee) –  Flint, MIDecember 8, 2017
I worked in the paint shops 80% of the time, and was able to learn every job. Wasn't enough to not get laid off just before Thanksgiving. It was a mass of lay-offs and it was something to do with bringing everyone back under a new "flex-temp" hire (Saturdays only, after being laid-off for three months.) Good job, but I moved on by time they got everything together. The thing that made me give up on GM is the fact that I've worked over a few hundred days, but they found a way to lay me off before I could get hired in three different times. Hired as "temp" need 90 days to be hired in.
Pros
OK pay, even better when lines are down for hours at a time.
Cons
Required overtime on some days

Benefits Administrator (Former Employee) –  Warren, MIDecember 6, 2017
Would never work again in a plant environment. Everything is geared to getting the completed parts out the door. It was a dog eat dog environment. All X-type managers.

Would not work here
Mobile Dev QA (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MIDecember 6, 2017
Not a great culture, no career advancement, very ignorant upper management, some great people working hard here but no passion is shown by the upper management which prevent for the team member to lose passion for the position.

Work life balance
Group Leader (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIDecember 6, 2017
Your work life balance can be thrown off due to the schedule fluctuations.

The workplace culture is trying to change. Although I think GM is behind the 8 ball on preparing the younger workforce for the retirement of upper level management.

Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 3, 2017
Great place to work overall. Company is really trying to become more "techy". Many employees are passionate about the end product. Only complaint is bureaucracy, but this is to be expected at a large company.
