    I have been working at Jaguar Land Rover full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work sites and facilities, good corporate benefits

    Cons

    Hard to leave work at work. Often make personal sacrifices for work. No departmental progression unless you are favoured by managers. So many managers are clueless.

    Advice to Management

    fearful management culture where all managers are afraid to expose the truth to there managers on cost and timing in case it looks bad on there own personal development. A culture full of graduates and managers who care only for there own personal growth and climb over others to achieve it with no focus on delivering projects. The people delivering projects well have progression blocked by managers and eventually... leave the business. My advice to management is employ more apprentices and experienced staff to deliver programs. Less graduates (which seems a jlr obsession). Less chicken chasers, managers and program teams and move those people so they have physical deliverables that doors not include taking a presentation some one else did to present in a "senior" review every week.
