Topics regarding layoffs at General Motors

Work is so slow

I prefer when work and deadlines are coming at me at a fast pace than when work is as slow as it is now. The pressure is off and that's fine, but I just feel bored now. I'm a little worried about what's going to happen next, because I haven't had... —  read more 

Issues with replacements

I really can’t believe GM can’t find good candidates to replace my colleagues who have left. However, there has been no replacement for months. I wonder what could be the reason? The only explanation I can think of is that GM won't find replacements... —  read more 

Stealth Layoffs @ GM

Before the last big layoff (was it 2019?), they spent the whole previous year silently laying off 10% of most departments. Nothing was announced, you just noticed that people disappeared. It was spread over the whole year.

Who mentioned layoffs?

I don't think there will be any layoffs for a long time. Of course, one should never completely relax, but my personal opinion is that there will be no cuts for now. Moreover, we are understaffed to such an extent that everyone does a double or... —  read more 

How the mighty have fallen

Subjective opinion?

As much as I tried to have the best possible performance, in the end it seems to me that its assessment comes down to a subjective opinion of our management. Is that possible? I have a very good reason to think so because I know a few people whose... —  read more 

anything but managers

Many here have that title, but I don't see them as managers at all because these people don't deserve that title in any way. It is quite unclear how they came to this position in the first place. What’s even more interesting is that the worst among... —  read more 

What bothers you the most at GM?

Personally, I don't have many objections, except that I would like to be a little less overwhelmed with work and have a better work-life balance. At the moment I have so much work to do that I can't get enough rest. I hope this is just a phase.

Reduction in managemet

I remember during the layoffs of 2019 they were supposed to layoff some percentage of management. Did they actually reduce the number, did they just shuffle and replace like a lot of the white collar positions, or was it all BS?

Chip shortage

Not everything can be blamed on chip shortage. It will be interesting to see what problem GM will come up with to justify its failures when chip shortage ends?

General Motors is hiring

I saw a message saying that GM is hiring followed by the usual examples of the no-nonsense culture like this one where Mary changed the dresscode to "dress appropriately"... For me, GM was mostly nonsense! It was nothing but bullying and politics... —  read more

https://www.cnbc.com/2021/10/07/key-takeaways-from-general-motors-investor-day.html A little older article, but I'm interested in what you think how many of these listed plans for the next period will actually become realized? Will GM succeed in... —  read more
