    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Lear Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - A lot of very friendly, helpful and dependable colleagues; - Exciting projects; - Upper management were lovely people, but I don't know if they were aware of how inefficient on-site work was.

    Cons

    - Extremely outdated and unreliable IT infrastructure (some platforms were over 14 years old during my employment); - Ridiculously unfriendly team leaders who were entirely overworked, but completely uncaring and frankly, dishonest; - Woefully inadequate onboarding and training programmes that don't even give you the basics on how you're supposed to do your jobs if you come from different software platforms—I spent my first 5 months doing almost nothing because there was nobody available to teach my anything. As someone with a technical background with over 26 years of PC experience and a very good command over multiple software platforms, it was truly just frustrating; - There was no company culture and no leisure activities or team-building initiatives to speak of—everyone just punching in and out on schedule, going home drained after chainsmoking a pack and standing around for an hour in brain-drizzle team meetings with 20-30 people mostly standing around silently trying not to get spotted while doomscrolling social media.

    Pros

    good working environment and easy to get to.

    Cons

    Some people are on a different wage of around £400 monthly for doing an identical job to others on the same line. Just called a different contract. Management need to take more notice of the employees, and not dismiss suggestions. Some of the best ideas come from those who do the job.
