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

    Pros

    The people were fantastic to work with and I was alwats supported and given the chance to work on various projects within my roles. The team offered great support through my studies, as did the apprentice team.

    Cons

    The apprenticeship offered very little in the way of a work life balance once university started, you couldn't really have a day off if you were striving for the top grades at university.

    Pros

    Good colleagues and work life balance.

    Cons

    Take advantage of contractors by using them for their flexibility and then putting blanket IR35 decisions on them. Engineers are left to do the a lot of the hard work for other functions and not rewarded for it.
