    Pros

    I get trained to become a full-time CAD Designer and I get paid to do it! It's such a cool place to work and it's awesome seeing all of the different models of bikes outside of my window.

    Cons

    In my role i'm stuck at a computer most of the time however I do get to fiddles around with office bikes and put parts that I design on those bikes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, the management is great at Triumph!

    I have been working at Triumph Motorcycles full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Big enough that there are plenty of good people and good structures in place to learn from. Small enough that you can quickly be responsible for important, interesting aspects of a products design. Some very interesting projects from a company that have recently invested a lot in the Design Dept, Also have focused a lot on market research and in doing so have learned a lot about how to sell bikes. Sales... are on the up as a result. I am always proud to say I work here. Privately owned by a smart business man. I would consider it a safe job with good benefits.

    Cons

    Triumph take existing engineering principles and apply them well with good procedures for control and consistency. As such the engineering can sometimes be a little "safe". Typically very rigid when it comes to flexibility but it has improved a lot in the several years I've worked here.

    I have been working at Triumph Motorcycles full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Quick turn around on projects ensures you are never bored as an engineer. From the start you are given full responsibility and a good working environment has been created to allow shared knowledge including working groups for each component area of the bikes. The company is ever expanding and is definitely moving in the right direction re-establishing itself as the market leader for high-end motorbikes.

    Cons

    Some Team Leaders, though very good engineers are not suitable for management. Paid over-time isn't always offered and management give little warning over when over-time will be stopped and re-started.

    Advice to Management

    More layers should be added within the company to help motivate employees by making promotions more common within design.

    Pros

    No nonsense, straightforward, honest place to work Finish at lunchtime on Fridays Pay well Discounts on bikes and clothing Products are works of art Pride in saying you work here

    Cons

    Some areas of the business are a little old fashioned in terms of management style Business has a tendency to run in functional silos Good at dealing with under performers, not so good at rewarding over performers

    Advice to Management

    Culture needs some work Learn to trust that employees will do the right thing Make a better link between performance and reward, empower and engage workforce. Stop being so self critical, celebrate success

    I worked at Triumph Motorcycles full-time

    Pros

    Good discounts on bikes and accessories. Finishing at 1pm on Fridays Seeing components through from conception to volume production

    Cons

    Innovation actively discouraged Extremely risk adverse (see point above) Like to follow what other companies are doing Team leaders can be good, but some are very poor and clearly not fit for leadership Promotion is based on hours overtime (or time you give to the business) not on actual ability and productivity during normal working hours Very high staff turnover makes it difficult to find people who worked on... previous projects which leads to a smaller knowledge base in house

    Advice to Management

    Encourage innovation and stop following the crowd. Triumph used to be brand that stood out as it really did 'go it's own way'. This attitude has now been completely dropped and should definitely be returned to. Management should stop paying external management companies for bad advice and return to the principles that got them so far and saw them become a major player in the motorcycle industry.
