General Motors, one of the world's largest automakers, traces its roots back to 1908. With its global headquarters in Detroit, GM employs over 200,000 people in every major region of the world and does business in more than 120 countries. GM and its strategic partners produce cars and trucks in 30 countries, and sell and service these vehicles through the following brands: Baojun, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, FAW, Holden, Jiefang, Opel, Vauxhall and Wuling. GM's largest national market is China, followed by the United States, Brazil, Germany, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Italy. GM's OnStar subsidiary is the industry leader in vehicle safety, security and information services.
At GM, our people span six continents, every time zone and speak more than 100 languages. We’ve built a culture and a business environment based upon inclusion, mutual respect, responsibility and understanding. We understand that in the global economy, diversity is a distinctive business advantage—and we now have 12 employee-driven Employee Resource Groups to coordinate employee initiatives, and offer direct contact to GM’s diversity management, human resources staff and senior management. GM Employee Resource Groups are tasked with: enhancing market opportunities; enhance recruiting and retention efforts; providing opportunities for career development and networking; acting as an information resource for any GM function; and, serving as the “face” of GM in their constituent communities.

• Asian Indian Employee Resource Group

We think big and move fast. We value simplicity, agility and believe in action. We believe in accountability from every member of our team and we demand results from everyone. In short, the GM culture is all about creating excellence— and providing our team members what they need in order to contribute to that success.
We have focused leadership in every area of the company, and with fewer brands, we can put more resources into our core brands, resulting in quicker production and, ultimately, better products.
GM is a place where you have the opportunity to grow personally and professionally through collaborating with team members worldwide. And, your career can take you to work on different brands, in different lands, on different global teams.
When you join one of the largest employers in the world, you can expect benefits on a similar scale. As a GM salaried employee, you will be able to choose from a variety of medical plans, including a comprehensive dental plan. GM investment options include Savings-Stock Purchase Program 401(k), Personal Retirement Income Plan and financial planning. We also provide life insurance and disability benefits to our employees. GM has approximately 16 paid holidays annually, plus vacation time ranging from 2 weeks for employees with one to fewer than two years of service, increasing up to 5 weeks for longer service employees. GM employees and their immediate family members are also able to purchase GM vehicles at a significant product discount. All this makes GM the perfect place to get your career moving.
GM Learning (GML) is one of the largest corporate educational programs in the world. It currently has 14 functional colleges tied to GM's global processes that are charged with developing curricula tailored to the unique challenges facing each GM business sector. Some classes within GML are lecture-based in a traditional classroom format. But many classes are offered online, and in multiple languages, so employees have the convenience and flexibility to initiate training on their schedule.
The 14 colleges within GML are: Communications; Engineering; Finance; Global Purchasing and Supply Chain; Human Resources / Labor Relations / Health & Safety; Information Technology; Leadership; Legal; Manufacturing; Product Planning & Program Management; Public Policy; Quality; and Sales, Service and Marketing.
GML uses one dedicated classroom facility in the U.S., located at GM global headquarters in Detroit's Renaissance Center. However, most classes are offered online. In addition, GML relies on affiliated sites and local accommodations in other parts of the globe.
For talented individuals, growth opportunities at GM are as vast as the world itself. From the design and engineering of new state-of-the-art plants in China, India and Russia to developing new marketing programs for all emerging markets, you can go as far as your hard work and determination will take you.
