    I have been working at General Motors full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Creativity, great people, and challenging work. Good benefits, compensation, and it can be fun at times.

    Cons

    Behind the times technologically, and a dismal work environment. Old facility, barren grounds, can make it feel like an abandoned campus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Certain environments stifle creativity, others promote it...its nothing new, hire a consultant.

    - Extremely large pool of opportunities
    - Room for entrepreneurial spirit

    Cons

    - Highly political
