Management poor
Overall element isn’t a bad place to work the management is a bit poor in the one I was working at. But other then that was an alright place to work..

Nice people, terrible manager
Overall a decent place to work, the higher management and engineers are all good people and they’re good at their jobs. However, the manager of the automotive department in Wednesbury is possibly the worst manager I’ve ever came across, no knowledge of engineering, no idea how to speak to people, no prior experience being a manager, no qualifications, not even a fundamental skills GCSE! It makes you wonder, how is this person a manager? The previous 4 people to have left the department have done so because of the managers poor management skills, and within the department this is expressed between the team daily, yet nothing is done about it? It amazes me, two automotive team members have left in the last month or two, I hope Elements HR department sees this review before myself and other team members leave.

Growing company with lots of opportunities and a good collaborative atmosphere
Element has been a great place to work. There have been some changes over the last 5 years but on the whole these have been positive and for the best. There is good camaraderie within the team(s), and good support from the senior management team, with a clear drive for continuous improvement and focus on developing the team. Element has some great core values, and is showing an increased emphasis on the value of their people. I have seen good mentoring, flexibility and opportunity for individual growth. I've enjoyed my last 5 years at Element and i'm looking forward to many more.

Male chauvinism
Unless you are related by blood or marriage to a current member of staff, don't waste your time at Element.Favouritism is rife.Painfully poor management. Although there's the exception of a couple of professional managers. The senior staff, line managers and HR management alike, are unfortunately some of the worst I have had the misfortune to work with. A misogynistic manager makes for an unpleasant working environment for all. The difference between salaries for staff with the same job title and the same experience is disgustingly unfair. For a UKAS accredited lab, the corners they cut just to save a bit of money is shocking. You could work yourself into the ground (as many do) for this company and nobody would bat an eyelid as you are simply just a number. They have an incredibly high staff turnover and don't seem to be making any progress in rectifying this. Poor wageExtremely poor managementPoor moral Poor professionalismGood if you need the experience to move on to a better job, as seems to be the way.

If your face fits
After almost 8 years within the company being within the lab for two takeovers, time has come to move on, lack of progression and willingness to invest in staff training in areas that need it the most has lead me to leave, poor management and the HR manager is totally unprofessional bringing my personal life into conversations when being told I'm leaving, they really don't care for the staff only the amount of work they can get you to do in a day. Pay is good for a starter after some experience but if your looking for a career look elsewhere, unless your related to others within the building you won't get far. Also no matter how hard you work or bend over backwards there is no sense of appreciation from higher management, they are happy for you to slave away to line there pockets.
