    I have been working at Vertu Motors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It’s such a shame that people who work for this company are abused daily because the majority of colleagues are hard working, nice people to be around. Canteen in the building that’s about the only other pros.

    Cons

    I used to have a brilliant manager who was friendly, caring and everything Vertu was missing, sadly she left and the place had got even worse. If you want to end up with a mental illness this place is for you.

    Advice to Management

    Look at how many people are unhappy in the office and question what’s going on. The majority of long term staff all leaving because of one person, clearly don’t care about what goes on... sad work place

    I worked at Vertu Motors full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Really incompetent head of department so no oversight.

    Cons

    Dunning and Krueger should study this place. Too dumb to know they are dumb - Frustrating for anyone but the feeble minded.

    Advice to Management

    You are not "buddies" you are there to do a job and offer oversight.
