      Pros

      The people I worked with were professional, best in class to learn from and develop. Half day Friday and good pay rate meant I loved my time at GM. If you are mobile then the world is your oyster as they really have moved people everywhere from Australia. Regional office in Europe has very strong leadership and holds markets to account.

      Cons

      Culture a bit clicky in parts and favourites rise faster than others. Lots of night calls due to time difference can be taxing on family time. Centralised functions to regional / Europe teams can slow things down.

      Pros

      Half day Fridays, salary reasonable

      Cons

      Massive culture problems in this organization, never seen so many people resign in a short period of time. Bad behaviour seems to be ignored/not dealt with. Limited opportunities for development. Zero coaching and development by managers. Very critical environment, employees are not allowed space and time to learn and grow organically. Innovation is slow and years behind competitors/trends. Very unstable environment.
