    I have been working at Sytner full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Genuinely try to be the best company to work for. Has grown significantly and core ethos largely remains. Inspirational leadership throughout company. Can forge a life-long career with Sytner as they tend to promote from within. Attracts the best people in their field.

    Cons

    Other job roles tend have limited progression, simply due to the structure. In some sites the pressure of target achievement has changed how customers are treated, sometimes unfairly. Whilst the best in the industry, it’s still the motor trade and suffers from inefficiencies and can be slow to react. A lack of staff benefits that are common in other industries.
