It was a great place to work when the pressure of losing your job didn't affect your job. For about 1 1/2 years that played a great deal on everyone's minds at General Motors. Now that I was let go because of downsizing, I feel much better. But for the ones still there at GM, I feel for them, because they are still on an emotional roller coaster ride until Oct 2009, when GM is going to let another 6,100 more white collars go.
The tools available for engineering are magnificent. The product is great. Besides, I like engines and powertrains, and that is what I'm working on!
I liked the vast resources of GM. Being at the Proving Grounds allowed a lot of space and on-your-feet type work with the cars. You could make the job somewhat what you wanted.
