    I worked at Jaguar Land Rover full-time

    Pros

    Great staff with a lot of talented engineers and designers , great location, get to work on new and exciting tech

    Cons

    Trying to be innovative in a "we've always done it this way" kind of mind set is extremely difficult and demotivating. Forced to do this through broken and outdated processes that are poorly documented and may actually deadend when it goes to another department because they no longer use the original process. I run into a lot of people in charge of things that don't actually know what that thing is.

    Advice to Management

    too many mid and entry level managers that don't have the technical background to understand what their team is working on and or, are very happy letting things run on autopilot taking on as little personal responsibility as possible.

    Pros

    They don't fire employees, even if you're totally incompetent you will have a job forever.
    Pays well.

    Cons

    Management team claims they want to be competitive and makes change in order to do so, yet they continue to do the same things over and over again. The definition of insanity.

    Technology, systems etc. very bad.

    I have been working at Jaguar Land Rover full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location is great. Engineering talent is top notch. Good work-life balance. Love the guest speakers that come by. Very social group.

    Cons

    Leadership is uninspiring. Difficult work culture with the worst combination of micromanagement and grassroots. Very silo oriented. Management does not value their employees. Emotional abuse and lack of trust is a common sight.

    Advice to Management

    I would fire most of your management at Portland. Unable to deliver results and provide leadership.
