There are many females in high level executive roles, however it is still difficult to become a leader in this organization. We need to support each other.

    I would like to see more internal opportunities to lead. There are only so many leadership positions, and it seems that they are pre-reserved for select people who fit the political mold. I really just want the opportunity to be valued.

You're not going to be promoted unless you are the Ideal Worker - put in a lot of hours and get to know the right people.

    If you work at the Ren Cen flexibility does not exist unless you are lucky enough to work for an enlightened boss.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    6 paid / 40 unpaid

    excellent maternity leave policy thanks to the union. Trouble is, if you take what is legally yours beyond FMLA, you are written off or mommy tracked. Even though it is legal for you to do so.

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. If you are an engineer or at the Tech Center, they are far more flexible to a work-life balance than if you work at the Ren Cen. My marketing/finance female peers I started with out of grad school have all left GM due to an inflexible work environment. The engineering department is more forward thinking and has more supports for women.

GM is working hard to create equality. It is also struggling to get women to enter and stay in an automotive engineering environment.

I have had great opportunities working here for the past 5 years which included multiple promotions and a job change. The gap between men and women still exists although it’s getting better. Working hours are extremely flexible and I’ve been able to work remotely but it’s not on a set schedule. Coworkers with family have no problem adjusting schedules to met their children’s needs.

Women are in the minority. It can be very challenging to be taken seriously. You need to develop a strong network to feel like you have any 'street cred'.

Although there is a large gap between the number of men and woman at GM, I see women rising to various senior roles and feel very supported in my career. Mary Barra is a great role model.

    A woman in my previous group was able to work flex time with a toddler and new baby at home (T-R) and was still a valued contributor.

Make sure you understand your worthiness for advancement is based predominantly on if you have a degree - not on your performance, value or contributions. Per a GM HRBP " the price of admission here is a degree - you won't go anywhere without it here"

    consider women AND men into leadership roles who do not have a degree but do possess applicable years of work experience in lieu of. There are many professionals who value and honor education but for whatever reason did not obtain a degree. It should be about performance and not appearances or discriminating based on if someone has or doesn't have a degree.
