    I worked at Jaguar Land Rover full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Got to work on projects that affected the business in the real world
    Great community of Graduates and Undergraduates to network and socialise with

    Cons

    Delay in being given projects to work on
    Managers too busy to play the role of a mentor-only had 3 very brief meetings over 3 months

    Advice to Management

    Place Undergrads in departments that really do need them, where they can make the best out of them.

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

    Pros

    Amazing brands and incredible products. I feel a sense of pride working for such a British success story. Big discounts on the cars.

    Cons

    Old fashioned culture. Little in the way of flexible working (don't walk the talk). Not very open with employees. Staff treated as a cost not an asset.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. Get senior leaders in from external companies who have experience of better, more progressive cultures who can set a better example.

    I have been working at Jaguar Land Rover full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Mostly great people, two great brands and (some) great products

    Cons

    Recent market performance has left some areas in panic mode. There is a culture within some areas of seniors surrounding themselves with rulesets and ‘yes men’ which prevents big issues being surfaced and dealt with. Arrogant pricing policies for some products

    Advice to Management

    Listen! Stop leaving bad news untold - it rarely gets better
