Stories for anybody who might be thinking, "General Motors couldn't be that bad." I've seen so many bad things in so many places in such a short amount of time. I am not the only one. The truth shall set us free!
It has never been a problem for me to do a bit of extra work, but in my case it's become an extra job, which maybe some new people should do. It is not normal to overload employees to this extent. We definitely need more people.
While I was fighting for everybody, you were fighting for the preservation of an inherently corrupt system. A system where people's lives mean less than unchecked hubris, selfish ignorance, and a general moral... — read more
How hard did you work to get the promotion here? I worked very hard, I tried to be as engaged as possible, I love my job and I hoped to get promoted. That hasn't happened yet. I’ve heard from some people that it’s best to forget about promotion and... — read more
With lump sum pensions anticipated to drop 10+ percent in the next months, are many considering retirement now? Will such present a “brain drain” or a welcoming situation?

As a current owner of a 2018 Chevy Impala LT with the 3.6L V6, it’s been the most trouble free and reliable car I’ve ever owned. I just want to thank the men and woman who built these cars as they are very under appreciated and valued in the market... — read more
I find our management funny when they try to convince us that the situation in the company is much better than it actually is. Almost all of us see how things stand, but they try in various ways to convince us that they have everything under control... — read more
GM is trying to change its corporate culture. Please HR/leaders note that the old tyrannical culture will be there despite of all efforts as long as you allow the continuously low performing managers to stay in their positions. Why is GM still not a... — read more
Counting days to my retirement. I couldn't stand it here for a few more years. There were both good and bad things, but overall, if I could choose again, I would never spend most of my career here. I think I could have done a lot more had I been in... — read more

What are some examples of racism at GM at the hands of Mary Barra or through racist policies?
I haven’t been at GM for a long time but almost everyone tells me to learn what I can and start looking for another company. I’ve tried, but I can’t say I’ve expanded my skillset much. I’m no longer learning in my current role. I’m still excited... — read more

It's been exactly a year since the big pandemic furlough of 2020. I'm curious whether all of those affected returned to work since then or did the company use the opportunity to cut some of them without anybody noticing? I'm betting at least some got... — read more
GM is ONLY good at growing talented individuals, into talented individuals that eventually end up working elsewhere. This is so true. GM knows how to grow talented individuals, but it doesn’t know how to keep them. Employees with high potential... — read more
I haven’t found another option but I still don't want to worry about what will happen when a new round of layoffs starts. Many of my colleagues were able to find another job, so I guess I will too. I worried too much but realized it didn’t make... — read more
I wonder what you think, was there any way to avoid layoffs at GM or at least keep their numbers lower? (and at the same time keep those at the top satisfied)
