Good offer ?

Nov 25, 2019 13 Comments

Received and offer to join GM (Detroit office)direct from a contract position. I have a master's degree with 3.5 YOE this includes 1.5 year with GM. I was offered level 6C with 75K starting pay and something about 10% incentive not sure what entails also standard GM benefits. As a contractor I was making 70k no benefits what's so ever.

The position is a technical position. That involves automation, a little coding and lot of analytics

I had asked for 85K but I was told there is no room. I was told 75k is the most.

Is this a good offer? I really want to get GM direct but not happy with the pay? Any suggestions?
What do people in other companies with similar jobs and experience currently make?

    That was about what Ford paid entry level 5yrs ago with masters degree and no experience. If you don't have any other offer, take it and move after a year. Is a bad offer.

    They are taking advantage of you desperation to get converted to full time and if you’re on a visa they’ll milk that too.
    Ford will pay 90k plus benefits without negotiating with them.
    I was in the D for 3 yes with Daimler

      I thought so! There’s no point of this discussion then. They know that you’ll take whatever they offer (usually they do the lowest as it’s a GM recruiter’s metric that how low can he make the candidate go to save company, moolah)

      The more and more I see these posts, the more I realize that Daimler doesn’t pay as poorly as others may lead you to believe.

    That's on the low end for a L6 role. If you don't have a competiting offer and they won't budge then you're SOL. Sorry.

    Def a bad offer with that amount of exp. But as the other post says, if you don't have anything else, take it and then move on

  • Sounds low. Detroit is no Silicon Valley obviously, and cost of living reflects that, but relevant experience seems like it would carry a higher salary.

    Depends on the position. With 3 years experience and a masters degree I was making around 86k-90k at another big 3 OEM but I worked in a hot technical field with a lot of competition (ADAS). Your offer could probably be better but it’s not totally out there depending on the field and nature of your work imo.

      To be clear, this was also a few years ago. So it should probably be higher at this point

    I started a year ago with a master's in an analytical position. 5a and 85k starting, along with all the other benefits. I was able to leverage another offer to up their offer a little. 1 year later moved up a band and get ~8-10% wage adjustment. I would suggest you get another offer and leverage that or ask to be in a 5a band so you can get that wage bump a year later
