    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

    Pros

    For automotive engineering, one of the best companies to work for in the UK. Salary good and reasonable amount of autonomy.

    Cons

    Company culture of hierarchy and confrontation to resolve issues ingrained from previous generations. Lack of trust of experts and senior management often delay decision making to avoid 'getting it wrong' at the expense of timely issue resolution.
