Aston Martin job reviews

  • Best thing

    Just the brand

    Worst thing

    Everything is ridiculous. Excessive pressure to work at an unreasonable pace and no communication about whats actually happening in the company. False promises and lies about being able to progress. None of the middle management have any idea on how to actually run a manufacturing factory.
