    I have been working at Jaguar Land Rover full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary, cars, other colleagues, health care

    Cons

    Run as a blame culture and with fear. It is felt by the most senior directors that shouting and intimidating staff is the best way to get results. It isn’t. You are invisible and treated poorly. Career opportunities are zero if you are female. This can be seen by the level of females in senior roles in JLR.

    I worked at Jaguar Land Rover full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Get to drive cool cars. You will get to work on fancy technology and features. Gives you a proud feeling to see the car on the road that you have helped build.

    Cons

    Salary increment isn't great so you could be stuck with the salary you started with. You have to push for your career. Old style management so it takes a bit to get used to.

    I worked at Jaguar Land Rover full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Challenges JLR is trying to do good cars

    Cons

    I have never seen a company where the work is so unfairly spread between the employees. Some people have nothing to do, some others are drowned. The work of component owner is one of the worst in terms of workload and responsibilities. When you are on time and deliver good quality of parts, your managers will take all the honour. When you are late or have some quality issues, you will be the responsible and all your managers will cover so it is you to take all the responsibility.

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

    Pros

    Prestigious brands, and a generally good remuneration package including private healthcare, heavily subsidised cars (at management level) and contributory pension

    Cons

    Poor behaviours from directors and leadership team are not consistent with the culture they're trying to build. Lack of decision can be frustrating.
