      Pros

      Positive board who are open about problems and successes. Brand perception Support from VW Group Significant investment on site and commitment for future products to be built in Crewe Strong product lineup

      Cons

      Low salary for the area and compared to brands within VW. Progression is non existent. Processes are kept a secret from colleagues to make it difficult to progress. Jobs aren’t advertised and just given to people in underhand ways. HR too focussed on tick box exercises to gain “top employer” status than actually trying to be a good employer to the existing staff. Undergrads and apprentices are used to fill permanent positions because Bentley won’t employee permanent staff to do the jobs. Constantly recruiting apprentices, undergraduates and graduates rather than experienced talent or trying to retain the good talent that’s already there. They would rather spend money on recruiting new people and paying a higher salary then increase existing staff salaries to what they should be for the job the do, knowledge they have and experience they bring. Morale at an all time low. Not enough staff in the right places. Equipment not suitable for certain functions to do their job Cross functional communication is difficult. Areas not aware of cost and time implications to their decisions. Management too worried about presenting bad or negative news to see riot management and board. People escalate tiny issues to management rather than start off by speaking directly with the person when the problem becomes known. Known issues are never dealt with and are a recurring issues during the annual colleague survey but management always seem surprised to see the issues raised by staff. Knowledge has been lost following the restructure and fewer people doing even more work. Mental health is talked about but Bentley just offer a phone number to an external charity to let colleagues deal with it themselves rather than trying to understand why people are suffering and deal with the route cause. Always hearing about people off with stress or mental health issues or collapsing at work. Too many people ore obviously out of their depth and only stay with the brand to get exotic trips Becoming more obvious that positive discrimination is happening in the hiring or promotion of staff.
