    Pros

    nice company to work with, great benefits and would recommend anyone to get in tho this world of automotive industry.

    Cons

    sometimes I felt that I was not given direction, guidance and the resources to perform the duties of the roleLEarnt by myself and however, the only manager at the time of leaving the company was the only negative thing I can point out.

    Advice to Management

    don't trust the manager / supervisors depending on their length of work in the company. Measurements needs to be implemented to keep a track of staff leaving due to certain managers and why.I have rated soles on the manager

    Pros

    The digital sculpting team is very professional and detail oriented. Great work life balance, with some flexibility to choose your work hours. Melbourne is a great city to live in with great food.

    Cons

    Due to the size the team, it's very likely you will only work on small parts and the alias sketch modeling is left to a select few.

    Advice to Management

    The work pace is sometimes a bit to slow and laid back, but perhaps this is just Australian culture.

    GM works very hard to develop their high performers. There is opportunity to work cross functionally and to move roles across departments as desired if learning agility is displayed by the individual. Highly collaborative culture.

    The industry in Australia is undergoing a large amount of change which presents challenges and opportunities. For the right individual this is an exciting time to be in the auto industry.
