    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Aston Martin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    People for the most part start out good. Bright eyed, energetic and motivated.
    Pride in the good name of a 102 year old iconic brand

    Cons

    Steady downhill erosion in primarily everything the company stood for due to arrogance of management practices Underfunded, understaffed, inexperienced new workers taking the place of capable experienced employees who after a couple years make mass exodus from the daily horrific conditions presented to them by psychotic managers who's only goal is to extract every last cent out of unsuspecting customers by using employees to execute their nefarious plans. This one is the "B" team folks. Run away as fast as you can and do not look back.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company while it's still worth something before you ruin the lives of the good folks still trying to make a living at this company. Stodgy ancient British management who places ill-tempered unbalanced Germans in positions of authority to make terrible business decisions and then create a culture of finger pointing and blame. Did not realize just how absolutely awful this company is until I quit and could clearly see their deceitful ways to workers and customers.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Aston Martin (New York, NY) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Two phase interview process. Rather involved. On both. Specific questions designed to get input on immediate company crisis issues. PowerPoint presentation expected at second interview. No decision after second interview for another 6 weeks.

    Negotiation

    Always in the form of written and mailed letters No e-mails. HR protocol always in full action. Never any commitment as to salary. Finally came down to take it or leave it.
