    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Jaguar Land Rover full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Salary very competitive in senior ranks - New offices - Iconic brands and beautiful cars

    Cons

    - Senior Management and Director behaviour extremely poor - Nepotism rife - No accountability at a Senior Level - just blame everyone else - Bullying rife - Welfare concern highly promoted but only as a tick box exercise. No genuine concern for employee wellbeing - Genuinely questionable promotions in recent years - Lack of direction from Senior Management - priorities change daily - HR policies protectionist. No support for the management trying to manage performance or absence. The process actually encourages managers not to rock the boat and encourages poor performance. - Due to the culture, talent is leaving in droves. And due for the nervousness around managing performance and the excellent salaries - the un-talented are staying. - Attendance Management Policy encourages long term sickness - Reward based on personal relationships not individual results - Decision by committee (after committee after committee) - No structured career planning - Leadership immune to feedback from their employees - which means these issues will never be resolved - Financial rigour - Change and associates cost control (non existent) - Gateways pointless as no one is honest in them - More focus on getting a car to market on time, than at cost and quality

    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.
