    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive benefits and pay. Strong team building activities.

    Cons

    Lack of work-life balance. Global support means being on call 24/7 even on vacations and holidays. I can't tell you how many weekends, vacations, and holidays needed to be worked.
