    I worked at General Motors full-time

    Pros

    room for starting new initiatives
    learned about the automotive industry
    Rickmansworth branch managed the entire UK
    office is located right next to the train station for ease of commuting from london

    Cons

    lifeless office vibe
    subsidiary was bought by GM and moved to Luton
    few communications with main department in Korea
    enforced office hours which was unempowering and overly rigid

    Advice to Management

    perhaps things are different now that it has been purchased by GM. I do hope things have improved. i worked at the subsidiary over 10 years ago.
