    Pros

    The people and the brands are great. Exciting product and a great future.

    Work hours, stress, lack of life and work balance. Only upper management received bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those that work hard and that means everyone. Recognize that people have a life outside of the workplace.

    Pros

    Nice vehicles to work on and occasionally drive

    Cons

    Not enough work in shop. Techs sit around most days waiting and then have to jump over each other to get the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the techs

    Pros

    Great products and potential due to the huge investment by Tata.

    Cons

    At some point the job market will open and good evmployees will leave.They manage by fear. Most employees just keep their heads down . Just a job, no longer a career for most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your forced ranking performance reviews.

    I worked at Jaguar Land Rover as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    What makes amazing cars even better? The people in the company. Some of the brightest, most passionate, and most helpful people I've met so far in all my internships.

    Cons

    Administrative software isn't world's best practice yet for sure, it is taking time to get upgraded but it is slowly getting there. At least the company is recognizing this and making appropriate investments.

    I worked at Jaguar Land Rover full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The product is exciting and ever-changing.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is one of dishonesty and outright fraud. I have witnessed the upper management lie to retail partners about the financial status of the company and withhold payments to inflate their balance sheet. Their philosophy is to protect home office first despite their financial obligations to partners

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful, you are subjecting yourselves to potential civil liability.

    I worked at Jaguar Land Rover full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Exciting industry, iconic brands, the best and most luxurious SUV on the market. Great culture at Uk headquarter, difficult environment at the US headquarter. All decision making moved to the UK.

    Cons

    Company is a shadow of its old self. Under Ford ownership it was run from the US but had great processes, very high calibre people, currently ran from India and the UK, many of the top notch employees have left. Land Rover is keeping perennially ailing Jaguar brand on life support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn from the other top luxury car makers, There is a sense of entitlement at Jaguar but they have to earn their place in order to be considered equal to the other luxury marquees.

    I have been working at Jaguar Land Rover as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is very helpful to new starters who are keen to learn about the business and progress. There's lots of opportunity to build a good career although I think there is too much of a progression culture among the graduates.

    Cons

    Sometimes both interns and grads can bid left with little to do. There is nothing worse than being stick at a desk for 8 hours a day with nothing to do!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilise interns/graduates better!

    Pros

    People are great, helpful and talented. There are always opportunities for promotion or if you are just seeking new challenges.

    Cons

    We still have some olf Ford systems but slowly replacing them. Managers are relaxed about time off if you do your job properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more team building events.
