    Pros

    Flexi time is great and the trust that comes with it to manage your own work load.

    The cars are amazing to see finished and while in production.

    Boosts interest from other orginsations about you with your career.

    Cons

    Trying hard to get up to date with digitalisation and incorporating this into an old fashioned business is frustrating.

    Management say they want to listen but only listen to what suits them.

    Pressure to preform at a constant high all the time can be draining.

    Blame culture needs to be changed.

    Advice to Management

    Take on board what other business are doing and listen to your staff. Don’t point the finger of blame but look at ways to change.
