Thread regarding General Motors layoffs

Fixing other people's errors

I'm tired of correcting other people's mistakes. There is more and more of that extra work every day. It's starting to frustrate me.
Worst of all, the ones doing sloppy work are more appreciated here than me redoing their work!
What are your experiences when it comes to fixing other people's badly done things?

Yes, this is one of the proper organizational techniques at General Motors. You have one person in a group that knows what's going on putting out fires until they retire or quit. If they were easy to replace, they would have been first in line for layoffs.

I used to fix things at General Motors until I got tired of being punished for it.

My experience was that you couldn't fix errors at General Motors because there was always somebody there to convince your coworkers that the error was actually not an error and that you are trying to make them look bad.

There's been a very long adage I heard when I was a young pup at GM.

Why do it right the first time, when you can redo it three times at triple the price. Kicking quality talent out the door for cheap and affordable, will result in results about the same.

GM has always prized new college hires and h1bs.

Cost is all they care about

Yep. If you don’t suck up to your supervisor, you are invisible at GM no matter how good your work is. I happily moved on a couple of years ago, and keep in touch with a few still there. I have been told that there are now 2 people doing the job that I did well alone.
