Production line (mis)
Production Operative (Current Employee) –  Wolverhampton5 July 2018
It's a good place to work and earn good money. Progression seems to rely on who you no and not what you no the culture is terrible in there. When you start at the emc you have to do 2 weeks collage and all they tell you is the management is great and all so the culture. But when you start in the actually factory that all goes out the window. The worst part about the emc is the production line managers they only care about the targets. They do not care about your health at all or your well being. This has been proved over and over again. The culture is terrible a lot of the people working on the line hate it but feel stuck because of how much money they are on and if they leave they probably won't be able to earn that kind of money again. The management literally depress people in there I'd only recommend working here if you are just In it for the money if not I wouldn't apply there.
Pros
Money and progression
Cons
Production line Management, culture and all so shifts

Manager (Current Employee) –  Coventry25 June 2018
Not good company. Very poor looking after their employees. Insane working hours. No life balance. Company strategy outdated and very hierarchical. Very poor senior managers and directors - very old school.

Great work-life balance but company requires more foresight
Product Development Engineer (Former Employee) –  Warwickshire25 June 2018
- Research and analysis of trends to identify new business opportunities
- Develop new features for future products
- Create specifications, conduct DFMEAs, user trials and tests to develop products

- Working cross-functionally and within small individual teams was productive and great for sharing knowledge, however pushing innovative features forward was more difficult due to the processes for adoption onto a vehicle programme.
- Sometimes senior management stick to their own opinions rather than understanding the trend analysis, therefore ideas can become stuck at middle management level, reducing the ability to future-proof.
Pros
Great work life balance, good salary, opportunity to progress, annual funding towards a hobby
Cons
Hierarchical and process-driven structure meant that it was difficult to make changes

Forklift Driver (Former Employee) –  Solihull24 June 2018
In general, management is about organization. There may be something mechanical about it, not in the negative sense of a “mechanical performance,” but rather in its focus on the technical “how” of accomplishing tasks. Leaders, in contrast, focus on the “why,” motivating and inspiring their subordinates. Leadership is about people. Not all leaders have the skill set to be managers, and not all managers have the skills to be leaders.

The critical role of a manager is to ensure that a company’s many moving parts are all working properly together. Without this integration, problems can arise and issues can “fall through the cracks.”

The car Commpany
Hybrid Function Developer (Former Employee) –  Gaydon22 June 2018
The Morning when you are arriving, you are saying good morning to all the Range Rover, Jaguar F-Type, SVR vehicles parked on site.
Most often you are hearing a V8 running on the test trac, or sometimes nothing because it an E-Pace.
Working with the cars is the most enjoyable part of the job for me.
Pros
Always the necessary ressources to do the job
Cons
Some lake of organisation
