    I have been working at General Motors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay relative to the position.

    Great vacation package; I think new hires get 3 weeks plus week of Xmas

    Good benefits: health care is pretty cheap, 4% 401k matching, annual profit-sharing.

    Cons

    If you have a brain, some of the inefficiencies will drive you crazy.

    Promotions can be based on friendships/relationships more than merit and ability.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a mechanism for employees to submit suggestions. (The link for suggestions on the internal company home page is a dead link that leads to Page Not Found, which really sums it up.)
