Typical large company: opportunities for some, less for others
Market Research Consultant (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MINovember 16, 2018
For those lucky enough to be on their fast track, there are a lot of opportunities to work in different areas of the company and learn. For others not as much - can stay in a dept for a very long time. Very political culture and stuck in their own ways of doing things.

DataStage ETL Developer (Current Employee) –  Roswell, GANovember 15, 2018
Workplace culture is only favorable for certain groups. Management is a hit or miss. You could have a great manager or one who doesn't know anything.
Pros
Healthcare
Cons
Inconsistent Expectations

Started out great and went downhill
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXNovember 14, 2018
GM started out strong with great benefits, supportive work environment, and pathways for career growth. Over the last few years they have been gradually taking these things away, and are now announcing big layoffs. This is a corporate culture that took a stab at being an IT company but ultimately decided to go back to what they are used to.
Pros:
Lots of holidays/vacation
401k matching
Cons:
Advancement rarely goes to qualified internal candidates
Judgemental culture (you better have a gm car)
Managers who don't want to be managers
Pros
lots of vacation

Technical Manager (Current Employee) –  Warren, MINovember 10, 2018
Keep in mind that key is your direct manager. Organizational culture is hard to change. Diversity in leadership is very low. White male culture, even though the working bees are very diversified.
Cons
diversity in leadership

Productive and met a lot of different people
Line Tech (Former Employee) –  Warren, OHNovember 10, 2018
A typical day we built 300 to 400 cars a day. I learned how to follow standardized work order. Management changed about every 6 months. For the most part we worked together and helped out where needed. The hardest part was learning different jobs.

Great benefits and great job as a launching pad
Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Roswell, GANovember 4, 2018
A typical day at work consists of many meetings, approximately between 2-4 meetings per day. Management and culture are good and provide helpful feedback. There are many events for team-building on a monthly basis and annual organization lunches along with weekly breakfast, daily lunches, and cultural events like Diwali, Christmas, New Year's, etc. The company provides benefits that are not matched at most other companies. The hardest part of the job is collaborating with outside teams. The most enjoyable part is the benefits, the breakfast, the lunches, the opportunity for breaks, ping-pong, and team-building opportunities.
Pros
Benefits, breakfast, lunches, team-building-events, etc
Cons
Collaboration with other teams

IT for those starting out
Senior Client Virtualization Engineer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXNovember 2, 2018
General Motors is so large that the workplace culture varies between departments.If you like always changing organizational relations, this is the company for you. It's one of the best places for university graduates or those early in their careers. It can be a little stagnant for senior staff because these positions are filled and rarely available.

A great place to work!
Technical Writer (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MIOctober 30, 2018
I love my job. There's not a ton of opportunity for advancement, but that's okay with me. I like the variety of work I get to do. Pace varies from slow days to busy weeks. Management is super good, as are my coworkers. Everyone gets along, with very little politics at the front line level. Collaborative, not cut-throat. Pay and benefits are the best I've ever had.
Pros
Too many great things to list.
Cons
Long commute from home.

Working with Suppliers, colleagues, students and the newly hired was extremely rewarding. The culture can be challenging at times which deflects from the teams ability to be the best it can be.
Pros
Large Company provides some financial security
Cons
Every company can do a better job of communication

Best workplace of Automotive Sector in Mexico
Trainee Engineer (Current Employee) –  Edo. de MéxicoOctober 23, 2018
I think that General Motors Mexico is a very good company to work and collaborate. Security is very important here and their job culture about that is amazing. Compensations are excellent but job work/life balance is not too excellent.

I highly recommend to work at General Motors Mexico.
