    I have been working at Pendragon part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I moved to Pendragon after working in the utilities sector for almost 10 years and despite this being a difficult decision to make, I've no regrets. I was promised challenges, responsibility and self working which has certainly lived up to expectations. I've found they put absolute trust within you and you're given the opportunity to prove yourself with the support being offered when needed. They haven't held back with responsibilities either which has improved my skills set and confidence tremendously. I have an excellent team surrounding me, all of which is supported by management who you know are on hand when needed. In terms of personal benefits, I was offered part time hours to support my young family and I've found extra lengths have been taken to support me...in exchange for hard work, commitment and dedication.

    Cons

    Unfortunately there is a lot of stigma surrounding the Automotive Industry, however there is huge amount of work taking place in the background to increase our employer brand and treating our people as a priority. It isn't going to be a quick turn around, but I would recommend anyone to be apart of this change and see the differences take shape to make us "employer of choice"

    Pros

    Pendragon have been very fair to work for in my career with them. There are many internal opportunities and those who wish to develop themselves and enhance their career are encouraged to via a range of development/talent programmes. The company likes to promote internally and rewards hard work. Leaders are approachable and are trying to change the company for the better

    Cons

    The stigma related to the nature of the automotive industry as a whole is present however Pendragon are noticeably working at improving working conditions and bringing the business forward to be an employer of choice.
