Company in transition, passionate but uncertain.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsOn the whole, some great people work here
Passionate about products
Work flexibility - home/office/site/home
Realistic attitude to risks and prepared to execute with them
Bureaucracy getting better.
Investment in people and plant improving too.

ConsPromotions/reward/recognition is scattered and difficult to understand - bonus size is skewed heavily to higher management levels. Company is still dealing with management snobbery, company car rules, hotel rules, travel rules etc.
Lower end of pay/reward compared to other industries for similar job
Expectation to be available 24/7 to help company from middle management upwards is high - they get their moneys worth out of you, not helped by years of personnel cuts, do more with less.
As with many large corporations, getting decisions can be hard - too many stakeholders, too much ass covering.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn order to attract the best people, you need to at least try and pay them competitive rates. You cant get a Rolls Royce for Ford money.
