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

    Pros

    1pm finish on a Friday, Great levels of autonomy, Very 'flat' company hierarchy, all levels of management are approachable, Prestigious company to work for.

    Cons

    Dated working practices, very regimented at times. Current 'flexible' working hours not particularly flexible. Benefits package is very parent-centric, and also not particularly beneficial to non-motorcyclists. Lack of career progression, you have to change departments if you wish to move forward within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Have a look at how other companies are run, stop letting egos and the ever prevalent 'it's always been done this way' attitude inform your decisions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
