    I have been working at FCA full-time

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance and a very collegiate place to work
    The organisation is generally very supportive of your development and will offer a lot in terms of training, courses, and industry qualifications

    Cons

    Flat hierarchy and low attrition means internal progression is slow and can be bias towards external candidates depending on the division
    Often frustrating to just get the job done: a lot of bureaucracy at every stage

    Advice to Management

    Set a long term plan and stick to it: so much of what we do is reactive and has little relation to our strategic priorities.
