    I have been working at Jaguar Land Rover full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, exciting technologies to work on and with, very flexible and supportive in getting work/life balance right, excellent support from management and team members, good supply of equipment such as laptops, test tools, software etc.

    Cons

    It can be challenging to convince some teams to make a change (accept new/changed requirements). There is not a concerted and joined up drive to implemented a holistic systems engineering approach.

    Advice to Management

    Hold confidential clinics with low level technical managers and senior engineers to understand the organisational issues preventing JLR from implementing a true systems engineering method across product engineering.
