      Pros

      Solid amount of work available and flexibility in where you want to work to an extent.

      Cons

      Some management treat you like a dog, openly make fun of you and even MORE openly display a great amount of favouritism depending on how friendly they are with staff. High rate, with very low pay off. Constantly using sneaky ways to take away your parts/quality/housekeeping bonuses. NOBODY listens to you, no matter how experienced an operator you are, no matter how well you know your machine, they WILL treat you like a total idiot that doesn't know what he's doing. When I started working at Brose, it was actually enjoyable, easy-going people with an achievable target? Easy work life. Since the big restructuring and the "redundancies" of some prime managers Brose really has gone downhill for the worse. Very sad to see. On paper, Brose LTD seems like a nice place to work but in practice, it is truly a draining depressing experience like no other.

      No work life balance

      Pros

      Canteen and colleagues are nice

      Cons

      Top level management have made what was a decent place to work be an awful place to work. Work life balance doesn’t exist. Expectations on being on call, doing irregular long hours, with little recognition. Lose staff to replace them with lower paid roles. Poor training for career entrants. Little structure and not enough staff to train new people on required skills as they are too busy, with increasing workloads, due to inadequate staffing. So they don’t have time to share their knowledge effectively. Pay scales varying for same role as much as £10k+ difference, for same work. With no potential to have reviews. Lack of respect for workers morale & work life balance.
