An Insider's view of General Motors

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

GM has a people-first culture that inspires everyone to help each other and improve themselves. It fosters a workplace of inclusivity instead of focusing solely on company results. I really feel like I am seen as an individual and that my work has an impact at GM.


Data Analyst, Data Management and Analytics Group

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m currently working on the Cruise AV and Cruise Origin, along with ADAS projects. I enjoy working in the new technology space because it allows me to think creatively and come up with innovative ideas to solve problems.

How does the company support your career growth?

GM continually allows me the flexibility to pursue a variety of assignments and roles in accordance with my interest and evolving skillset. With each move, I’ve found satisfaction through increased responsibility and overall scope of work. The key to success is understanding the business while building and growing your leadership acumen.


Program Engineering Manager, Battery Electric Vehicles

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I want my team members to feel like they’re working with me, not for me. So, I make myself vulnerable to my team. I share my failures and ask for help. Likewise, I try to create an open, safe and trusted environment for them to discuss their challenges. I share my success stories to inspire them to realize their career aspirations.


Director, Ultifi Data Platform Services

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started as a calibration test engineer, then moved into our Immersive Lab, where I leveraged cutting-edge technology to speed up engineering and design processes. Now, I’m using that experience as an Integration Design Engineer in our Advanced Studio. These opportunities enabled my professional growth and I can’t wait for my future in innovation.
