I worked at General Motors full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Flexible hours, come and go as you need. Large company with many areas to work in.

Cons

Can be difficult to get promoted. No clear reasons why some people get promoted and others don't. Seems to be more political than anything. Good performance doesn't get rewarded with promotions, just additional work.

Advice to Management

Be consistent how you promote people. Provide clear direction to employees and honor your word. Employees often go around to check the boxes to get promoted and others get promoted without accomplishing anything. Very frustrating.
