    I have been working at Jaguar Land Rover full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My working experience at JLR changed under 4 managers. 3 of my managers appreciated my skills , treat me with respect and gave me interesting tasks and made me happy about my work.

    Cons

    The experience with the fourth boss was disappointing. The manager has no strong character, agrees with everyone and has no his own stand. Downgraded my involvement at work and virtually kept me idle for the last half of year. At this time knowing that the company experiences problems with profitability , he hired another 3 persons to the team, Could not say much about value of two of these new workers, but the third one has no qualifications, no skills and no motivation to learn and work. Just a couple of things that allowed her to take this position: parents at high position at JLR and boyfriend at a high position at JLR. I has been seeing as once strong united team working with enthusiasm was destroyed during one year.

    Advice to Management

    Choose better your management staff.
