      Pros

      1- Brilliant scientists who are willing to share their knowledge and experience. 2- Free lunches

      Cons

      1- The site is struggling to generate money hence expenses are controlled tightly. New year dinner was organised and paid by scientists themselves. Salaries and consequently the quality of Managers are low. I got the least experienced, rude and demanding Manager in my whole 15 years career JM Fuelcell.2- The site has about 200 employees. It means a head of a group in Fuel cell site has the same seniority, experience and maturity as a junior-manager in a bigger company. 3- Technology department is an office with 10-15 people scientists in it. Job starts sharp at 8.30 and finished at 4.30 to 6 pm. 4- No formal training will be given. It is expected you lean from colleagues. 5- The production site has some weird people. There is a senior staff which uses F words left and right and is extremely rude. As new employee, you should make sure to accept all these and be extra careful with your own wordings.6- There is culture of complaining behind your back to HR and Managers. There is no honesty and direct talking. All talks are behind your back. If your Manager is a rookie and cant handle the politics, the possibility of screwing up is high.

      Pros

      Pension Free lunch Good work life balance

      Cons

      New senior management don't seem to be aligned to JM values. They don't care about staff and aren't always open and honest. Senior management don't always follow their own policies- us and them mentality. Few career opportunities- never seen anyone promoted.

      Do not work here if not a British white man

      Pros

      Good benefits (if you can understand how to access them), including share buying, flexible working, good quality free lunch.

      Cons

      Diversity amongst management is a joke. Bullying and harassment claims are hushed up, perpetrators promoted whilst others pushed out. People who speak up about diversity and inclusion (if not British white men), it will hold your career back. Same for union representatives.

      Mixed Culture

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      good for investors as cost containment is rife with low salaries, but good pension and free lunch

      Cons

      Generally low leadership visibility and communication and weak leadership teams at Corporate and Battery Materials with HR Directors who turn a blind eye to female managers being held back and at worst being patronised. If the future of JM is in Batteries then it helps to stop making new hires leave after 2 weeks!
