    I have been working at Aston Martin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    "Lower" Tier management is good. Work/life balence is nice. Traffic is fine if you change your work hours slightly. Friendly staff. A lot of experienced engineers.

    Cons

    Upper management is non-existant in the office. Minimal trust in employees. Employees not treated with respect. Salary is well below average for industry standard. Communication is non-existant. Employees have been let go with 5 minutes to spare on a friday afternoon, then gardening leave. Communication regarding job security is awful, many people have been let go, this has not been communicated... properly to try and stabilize the share prices. AML management shows no signs of actually wanting to fufill it's mission statement. Office rumours and politics is out of control. Bad business practice and poor management is taken out on the employees. Business outlook is poor. Most employees expect buy-out or mass redundancies in the near future.
