    I worked at General Motors (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    GM is a global company with virtually hundreds of career paths to chose from.

    Cons

    Being a large company comes with its share of downsides. As an employee, you could very easily be forgotten and lost in the shuttle if you do not know exactly what it is you want out of you career. My piece of advice is to network as much as you can.

    Advice to Management

    From numerous conversations with current and former employees, there appears to be consensus that upward reviews are long overdue.
