I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Colleagues, friendly and generally courteous interactions at meetings, work-life balance is quite good and gives you flexibility with work hours.

Cons

Management can be hierarchical and some departments can be bureaucratic resulting in delayed decision making. Career growth prospects are slim to none and promotions are often made based on whom you know rather than what you can do.

Advice to Management

Promote people objectively based on capabilities instead of subjective criteria
