I worked at GKN Driveline full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good company with established business processes, I was given plenty of opportunities to develop myself and show what I can do. Very good lean practices and committed to educating the whole workforce in lean. The working atmosphere was good and everyone always pulled together to get to the job done

Cons

As an organization it leaves buying machines and committing money too late in the process which makes it challenging to meet project timelines.
It also does not do a good job of attracting the best talent.
Senior management is sometimes indecisive and leaves decisions to the very last minute

Advice to Management

Listen more to some of the challenges of your people. Spend money earlier, it will help you be more successful. If you don't spend money, don't be surprised if it doesn't work as planned.
