    I worked at Bentley Motors full-time

    Pros

    A small team of highly dedicated, focused professionals being called upon to produce superior results on a daily basis. This requires teamwork, commitment, and a complete dedication to the product, all of which are given by the entire team.

    Cons

    Work - life balance requires many family sacrifices due to long hours and travel.

    I have been working at Bentley Motors as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working for Bentley Motors was a unbelievable experience for me. It has change my point of view on many aspects of this bussines. Its an incredible adventure and amazing opportunity to work for Bentley Motors to learn new things and work with absolutley amazing people. Seeing these incredible hand made cars every day is like working at museum where you can see art everyday because that is what these cars are to me , a piece of art and I was proud to be a part of process to create them every day.

    Cons

    You will get the opportunity to work within different areas of the company , it will show you more of how the car is made so its a challenging task but also very pleasureful to lear another aspects of creating such an amazing car

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Biggest advantages of working for Bentley Motors is how the company take care of you as an employee , getting loads of time off during the year like Summer Shut Down , where you know what time of the year you'll be off for 3 weeks so you can plan your holiday in advance. Also great trainig opportunities within the company , so you can improve your skills and maybe move up to a better possition. Overall , Bentley Motors is the best place to work at , at least it was for me , and if I had a chance to go back , I would.

    I worked at Bentley Motors full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful product.. And great place to work if you have no babies, no career aspirations, and just want a job and need to be managed.

    Cons

    Lack of progression, or wing clipping. Role specific, heavy management with many layers to get through for decisions, inconsistent management, your lucky if you get a new one and not someone who's been there 30 years. If Lacking job satisfaction empowerment and equity in work. Lack of regard from management if that's the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the long serving managers who have no vision or leadership qualities.. Which from my 9 years experience is the majority. You need fresh blood and dynamic people to move this company forward and challenge.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, location, work hours.

    Cons

    Management are corrupt, production level employers are treated like idiots rather than being met with the respect they deserve. Strict policies for lower level staff while team leaders and section management can swan about doing sod-all throughout the day without it being an issue to anyone. There's more I could complain about but Bentley Motors has already sapped enough of my life away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better, especially those poor agency lads and lasses.

    Pros

    The company has a great work environment and culture. The people are very friendly and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Advancement is difficult unless you want to transition to a different company within the VW group. Very small office with nearly half the employees being field-based & out of the office frequently.
