1. The Best and Worst things about working for Jaguar Land Rover

Best: People are very friendly and open to share their knowledge. The company invests in training, which can even result in completing an MSc and/or a EngD.
Worst: 
The sites are a little bit far away from each other and if you don’t have a car it can be complicated.

Research Engineer, Low Carbon Vehicles at Jaguar Land Rover

Best: Graduates are treated with the same respect and authority as any other person in the company. I have been given a lot of responsibility from day one but also the support I need. There are a large number of training courses provided for both technical and professional skills as part of the scheme. Additional courses can also be requested. Graduate placements allow you to explore other areas of the business outside your “home department”.
Worst: Not a “worst” but a note of caution: The graduate scheme is what you make of it. There are always further opportunities to develop and take on more responsibility. In that way you are often in charge of your own destiny. If you are not proactive in grabbing opportunities then you will not make the most the graduate scheme.
Graduate Trainee, Advanced Product Creation at Jaguar Land Rover

Best: Great atmosphere and positivity surrounding the business. Found that the majority of employees are very interested in helping the company not just themselves! Exciting to be part of a fantastic brand, aiding them to provide top quality products. My job role is very varied and therefore every day is challenging, in a good sense.
Worst: I personally have a lengthy commute but that was my choice. Sometimes hard to manage email/meeting balance.
