"GM is a great company, and is trying to do great things in pulling work back in house that has been outsourced for literally decades. The dispersed workforce and some teams spread across all four sites. (Atlanta, Phoenix, Detroit, Austin) All are making the job more difficult than it needs to be. The overwhelming presence of ex-Dell and ex-HP employees in Austin ostracizes a lot of good people and good input - even that of ex-Dell and ex-HP people in other sites. Overall, though, a good gig."

What don't you like about working at General Motors?

"I dislike the growth potential. The problem is that, due to the bankruptcy, GM has slowed its programs in Mexico, basically removing the possibility of growing within GM more than what the US can grow. At this point, even the temporal assignments are almost inexistent and are almost unique for the US positions."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"None. They are doing their best to keep the talent, and trying to promote my efforts as much as possible. The problem is, I really don't want to wait until GM thinks it's okay for the Mexico unit to grow again."
