If she were a bad CEO the board would have replaced her. But they seem to think she is doing just fine.
We know your whole story, you’ve told it a thousand times. Telling it one more time isn’t changing anyone’s mind here. You’re a broken record.

The book of boards who have thought their incapable CEOs were doing a bang up job in the history of America would have a thousand pages.

If she’s not a DEI she’s a sycophant for a certain political persuasion. The whole board is. Either way she was not hired for her brain.

10 billion profit?? Maybe old Joe was right. It's not inflation, it's corporate greed.

As pointed out they should be making more. 5% ROS is not exciting by any means.

Oh, I know you arenít. But I donít know you and that is unfortunately an internet judgment I conclude from your (apparent) insensitive post.

Lifeís hard. Business is harder. If sensitivity is any part of your business acumen youíre in the wrong career. Try Walmart greeter.

I'm pretty sure Ms. Barra and her $29 Million per year compensation package don't give a f* what any of you think.

GM has been going out of business due to Barra for the past 10 years according to the "internet experts".

Yet GM is still here......

Only thing that needs to go away is the mindset of anyone that isn't a white male in a prominent position is a political correctness/woke/CRT/DEI or whatever is the latest outrage clickbait generator hire.

It's pathetic. Don't like what she has done as CEO? That's fine. But the jump to whatever is the rage in political BS needs to stop.

And this, boys and guys, is the ugly side of social media. This has become a pointless and toxic thread.

Lets take a good look at this. Mary's ship isn't the only one with gaping holes in its side. There is not one, that correct, not one manufacturer short of BMW and Mercedes (I'm not happy with those marques either) that is producing any meaningful or desirous content in terms of new automobiles. It is apparent that the trend in cars is the crossover body style (the carry all but with no meaninful content). In essence, these are rolling refrigerator-freezer style transportation, complete with the door thunk sound and door chimes. I am sure that technology dollars have gone into the design of these vehicles, but aside from safety, one crossover looks just like any crossover vehicle. No styling cues, no aspiration, no sense of style.

Now, if Barra has played a signifcant role in Chevrolet's decline, then certainly she should take blame for it. If she really wants to be remembered as an effective leader, then she should also admit her mistakes and take corrective measures in putting out meaningful car products. I'm sure all of GM's news isn't doom and gloom, but they are a far cry from automotive's glory days.

Iím having a hard time understanding why yíall think Barra is running GM into the ground. The company has been more profitable under her than the last person in charge and probably more than the person in charge before that person.

I donít like that the Camaro died under her leadership and I hate what happened to the corvette (no manual and ridiculous starting price now). I canít say I wouldnít have killed the Camaro too if I was in charge. The car didnít sell. As ceo itíd be my job to make the company as much money as possible. Of course Iím killing a poor selling name on a very expensive platform. While it sucks thatís what ANY CEO would do.

I wish GM and other companies made cars I liked still but I hate to break it to yíal but we are the minority. There just arenít many enthusiasts left for them to consider making more enthusiast vehicles.

If I was CEO of any car company Iíd most likely opt to kill all my rwd platforms because front drive cars are cheaper to manufacture and would have a few awd cars. There just isnít that many folks to cater to who would want a rwd option. While it would pain me as a car guy to do that the $100 dollar bills Iíd be rolling around on on my bed would make my tears go away.
