    I worked at Prodrive Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hired me when I couldn't verify for 8 months of work,,do to the fact that the company went out of business.

    Cons

    When ProDrivers had what I believe to be an employee audit from their main office,they counldn't keep me on.

    Advice to Management

    Just because a company went out of business and you can't verify the time they worked there,doesn;t mean they didn't.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, Multiple projects, Amazing working environment/facilities, friendly enthronement . Free IPhone6 and mobile plan, free lunch.

    Cons

    personal development CAP since the projects are getting recycled. Not recommend for starters since there is no guidance, training or mentoring. There is pressure and overtimes are expected and required. Employees getting recycled yearly. Mediors and seniors are quite rare in Prodrive technologies.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate your employees to stay in Prodrive. Do not place in-experienced employees in key positions.
