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

    Pros

    You don't get fired easily and human services hear you and help you. Steady pay, increase in salary every 6 months when you are a new hire but manager can hold raises and take away bonus percentages. You get a bonus every year depending how you performed and how well the company did. Also, like I mentioned how much the manager gives you.

    Cons

    LITTLE FLEXIBILITY. Hard to take days off and specially they want you to be there at least at 9am and leave at 5pm. Monday - Friday. Its a very corporate full time job. Sometimes you have to stay on call etc. Takes months to switch your initial position.
