    Great cars. You will have the chance to drive a Bentley sometimes

    I have been working at Bentley Motors full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent organization and very passionate employees. Amazing products to work with, and a luxury culture like no other.

    Cons

    Company has big goals, and the teams are small. This provides everyone a level of autonomy and the ability to wear many hats, but can also lead to being overworked.

    I worked at Bentley Motors full-time

    Pros

    A very fun and dynamic work environment. The teams people work on are pretty small, but there is a lot of collaboration between opportunities so you are exposed to different parts of the business. Get great insight into the luxury automotive space and what competitors are doing.

    Cons

    If you want to move up in the company, you're basically forced to apply to jobs within the group (primarily at VW or Audi). A lot of collaboration with the UK office which takes place in the morning (may be a con if you're not a morning person).

    Advice to Management

    Offer employees more growth opportunities to work outside of the company but within the group, with the ultimate goal of returning to the company in a higher position.

    I worked at Bentley Motors full-time

    Pros

    A small team of highly dedicated, focused professionals being called upon to produce superior results on a daily basis. This requires teamwork, commitment, and a complete dedication to the product, all of which are given by the entire team.

    Cons

    Work - life balance requires many family sacrifices due to long hours and travel.

    Pros

    Prestigious product, Car sheme and Flexitime.

    Cons

    Personnel - unprofessional & no effort to retain people. High turnover.

    Opportunities not the same for all.

    Little actions go a long way.

    Show more evidence of trying to retain existing and loyal workforce - will reduce turnover and need for retraining.
