    I worked at Aston Martin full-time for 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...

    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...

    Thank you for your comments, which were a considerable time ago and I would agree that we have energetic and motivated staff. AML is metamorphising; we are on a positive progression forward and the recent injection of incredibly strong senior managers and Directors across the business ...

        I have been working at Aston Martin full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        "Lower" Tier management is good. Work/life balence is nice. Traffic is fine if you change your work hours slightly. Friendly staff. A lot of experienced engineers.

        Cons

        Upper management is non-existant in the office. Minimal trust in employees. Employees not treated with respect. Salary is well below average for industry standard. Communication is non-existant. Employees have been let go with 5 minutes to spare on a friday afternoon, then gardening leave. Communication regarding job security is awful, many people have been let go, this has not been communicated properly...

        Advice to Management

        Nice atmosphere and relatively small business makes you involved in many aspects of the project work. Amazing cars which are build just downstairs int he same office.

        Cons

        The regular fluctuation of the automotive sector. Traffic in Gaydon is horrendous. Offices are not so fresh.

        Hi this is disappointing to read. The Aston Martin dealerships are franchises but should reflect the values that we uphold and ensure customer focus is key, and that collaboration is an underlying behaviour. We will feed this back

        Advice to Management

        Ask the employees what they would change. Maybe there are a few good idea, and they will feel more appreciated
