    Pros

    flexibility, co-workers are competent and office atmosphere is positive, vacation benefit is relatively generous, international aspect of company is interesting. if you like cars this is a good place to be

    Cons

    This is a very small company but embraces bureaucracy like a big one. Pinches pennies but loses pounds (and credibility) as a result. More management layers are being added, but the actual worker count seems to decrease each year. Bonus scheme is a negative incentive as most employees see that they have little chance to achieve it so don't bother trying

    Even with all that, it's not a terrible place to work but there is little opportunity for advancement

    Advice to Management

    More input from outside Europe when new tools are designed. There are very smart people here, listen to them. Markets have different requirements
    Focus on product instead of sales/management and constant re-orgs.
    Make some sort of bonus attainable if you are interested in bonus as motivation
