    Pros

    They are willing to throw money at projects, so if there’s something you’re interested in working on the funding is generally available. However if your project requires travel you’re out of luck.

    Cons

    The U.S. branch of this company has very little respect or compassion for their employees. It’s all business and backwards policies that have a negative impact on employee wellbeing.

    The management culture is dominated by white British males who have very little respect for the individual employee. The business comes first,

    Pros

    Work life balance isn't bad, nice offices, good place to learn since it has a flat organizational structure.

    Cons

    Very little to no room for advancement. Promotions are very hard to come by, especially going from a normal employee to a manager. Lateral movement is possible, but for no raise in pay. They'd rather higher someone from BMW, MB or the corporate office in the UK than promote internally. This causes low morale, but HR doesn't care, since they are basically useless.
    Raises and bonuses are abysmal. Like not even equal to cost of living.
    No summer hours.
    Don't even think about asking to drive a company car. Management thinks they are made out of gold. The parking lot is full of cars literally rusting away, but they won't let you near them. What good is it working for a car company if you can't even drive them?
    US management isn't bad, but they are stuck with the horrible decisions that are made in the UK. The UK management is basically running the company into the ground.
    IT sucks and they don't invest a dime into technology. Reporting is non-existent in many cases and work-arounds are the rule not the exception.

    Advice to Management

    Promote internally! Allow employees access to vehicles. If you give a merit raise, make sure it's more than cost of living. Step back and invest in technology and reporting. Lastly, upper management in the UK has to go, otherwise the brand will not survive.

    Pros

    Current and future products are exciting, beautiful building to work in, employees are great people, pay is aligned with other companies.

    Cons

    Expected to work 24/7, hostile work environment, not in touch with needs / wants of the customer, only concerned about the companies bottom line

    Advice to Management

    Stop dictating how employees should feel and start listening to and acting on grievances.
