    I have been working at Jaguar Land Rover full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good level of pay and general benefits
    Well regarded company

    Cons

    Ultimately my advice would be to apply for a specific job rather than this scheme as you have no control of where you end up. (at least in manufacturing)
    Confusing structure, graduate scheme not clearly set out, feels more like you're just put into a role and left there largely. Experience varies wildly dependent on where you end up
    Poor management of scheme in general, or at least that's my experience.
    Lack of proper formal training, just lots of single day courses covering fairly basic topics most graduates are well versed in.
    Variation in workload is massive again depending where you end up.
    Multi-site working and almost all have access and/or workspace constraints which is very annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just hire so many people for the sake of it, ensure there are valuable roles for them to go into.
    Improve scheme so it feels less like a conveyor belt and have some time for feedback from current grads as even finding someone to talk to about problems has proved difficult
