A lot of people not in with the green tech thing have to pretend they are if they want to keep their job at GM. You can’t even hint at the idea that going green at GM is not necessarily going in the right direction. If you do, prepare to be dealt with, especially if you’re a design and engineering contract employee.
If you’ve been there working for GM directly for 20 or more years they probably don’t care what you think one way or the other. You can’t have it show up on LinkedIn or Facebook...You don’t want to have the HR community alerted to the fact that you don’t agree with ending fossil fuels for automotive internal combustion engines. And if that’s you, you know the same is true of working at Tier 1 and 2 automotive suppliers.
You MUST acknowledge the need to save the planet or you risk being branded as a “heretic”.
Sorry dang state of affairs ain’t it. Before I retired/got laid off 2 years ago the company I worked for for 36+ yrs was constantly trying to implement a “paperless” system and continually failed to get it up and running. Some areas you could do it. Other areas it was nearly impossible. Don’t know if they are still trying or not. So, what’s worse? Paper copies or buying vast quantities of electronics and the energy required to run them all? Dang, now where is that forest? Too many trees in the way to see it I guess. Kind of like the eco-wack-a-doodles wearing the latest in patagonia synthetics to their next protest.
