Thread regarding General Motors layoffs

Do they even care about keeping the best people?

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 after some time spent here go to competing or better companies for many reasons. Admittedly, no company will ever eliminate employee turnover, but it seems to me that GM has no strategy that can help keep its best.

Strategy does not outweigh politics, not at GM, not ever. If it's not people ganging up against somebody who puts forth effort, it people trying to cover up for their bad behavior. When it all comes back to bite them...too big to fail.

I seem to remember reading about a lot of talented people being laid off. Otherwise, why be loyal to a company where you see that kind of thing happening.

I agree 1000% with the OP below. Switch jobs, learn what you can and move on. Rinse and repeat

Switching jobs is how you get a raise in today's labor market. Stay around a few years, learn what you can, move on for better horizons. Rinse and repeat.

Hard to say. Think your argument could apply anywhere. Those that are the most talented may feel they are so valuable that they can keep looking to get a better deal while those less valuable may feel they've 'got it made' so they stay put and hunker down.
