    I have been working at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly people. Company car

    Cons

    Really disorganised unprofessional place. Trainings awful, departments are short staffed causing a lot of work load on the workers causing a lot of unnecessary stress. Lots of favoritism in the company. Doesn't matter how hard you work doesn't get appreciated and no career progression available. No pay raises. Unfair expectations of working overtime due to them not hiring enough workers. Not a lot of structure or communication in departments which makes work life very frustrating. No work/life balance.

    I have been working at FCA Fiat Chrysler Automobiles full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Iconic brands and products Big company but can have input Ability to gain exposure to a lot of areas (good for people who want to learn more)

    Cons

    HQ Turin control everything, no autonomy and you have to work around what they want. The UK company is dictated by Turin despite them not having the expertise of the UK market as local management would. In contrast to the exposure gained, you don't get any increase for more responsibility unless you change grade and even that needs to be agreed by Turin. The company has a policy not to increase salaries for "sideways" moves even if its higher responsibility or due to past performance. In some cases, they won't increase even if you've increased bands for a while. This is completely hypocritical of the CEO saying the company is a meritocracy. No inflationary pay rises unless it's a legal requirement in the country. The company will quite happily not increase pay, let staff leave and pay someone new with less/similar experience and pay more and an agency fee. The policy centrally seems that they'll wait until someone is so frustrated and resigns or is very close to before they'll acknowledge it centrally and consider doing anything. There's a lot of internal politics in the company and certain employes are favoritised for everything and their team has to put up with it. This results in highly talented individuals leaving the company due to the favourite employees calling the shots. I've witnessed countless highly talented people leave the business due to these people preventing development for people who could make the difference. Very reactionary business and everything is done after the market (e.g. one of the last companies to bring in an SUV). Everything is requested last minute and needed in the past but never communicated until later. Mostly from Italy HQ although that culture imprints to UK Management. A lot of subsidiaries in the structure who are working against each other rather than in collaboration. Limited progression and internal opportunities not really communicated (unless you're Italian) which causes a lot of people to leave after 2-3 years.

    Pros

    Excellent cafe on the ground floor.

    Cons

    Management are appalling and micromanage every little thing you do. Fleet Manager in particular is out for herself and does not care about her team. No sense of urgency and lack of procedures make this company not a nice one to work for.

    Pros

    Welcoming atmosphere. Ability to be empowered due to lean resources and self starters can get involved in lots of areas. The people really do make the place Passionate international environment

    Cons

    Work life balance is a real struggle and company has high expectations on staff to work longer hours to get jobs done Currently a tough environment given market conditions and this can lead to chaotic decision making which doesn’t always provide results Timid characters would struggle in this forthright environment Lack of structure
