Graham, sorry to hear the news.

You didn't make the mistake of telling them you preferred pies to pasta?

Graham, it's sad to hear that. I have wanted to do a factory tour with my son and godson for three years, and of course with you as tour guide. On the one hand my inertia has caught up with me that it won't happen and on the other hand covid came in the way... What a shame. I wish you all the best for the future.

John's right re: the Bugatti Trust, well worth a visit. thumbs



Sorry to hear about your job. What I have read here Graham.... you were a very good ambassador for the factory - perhapst Too customer friendly?

Here in Germany I'm always excited about the many motorsport events that take place in the UK.!

Could it be that I have seen you in one episode of "Richard Hammonds Workshop" (Prescott)?

I wish you the best!

Graham man of your tallents will hopefully get fixed up with something soon. Best of luck with your job search.

laugh2 Definitely not John! And I like each in equal measure, though not usually on the same plate grin2

Yes, I do, very briefly appear in said video, mostly with my back turned to camera smile

Well there are plenty of good tour guides still at MMC Heinz, so whenever you make it across you'll be assured of a decent tour smile

I worked for EDS in Australia for a while before they were bought by HP. A great company if you made a good profit for them. As a Senior Technical Leader I designed the computer applications and felt I had all the responsibility on a project, but any bonus etc. all depended on what the salesman had sold the project as in the first place. First couple of projects were shocking as they were sold as lost leaders to get a foot in the door, EDS made very little money on the project and the managers punished the staff by trying to get ahead of schedule working nights and weekends for no extra pay, and make you feel it is your fault the project is going badly when actually it is going well. But if the project was costed to make a good profit they would still want a lot of extra hours to get as much profit as possible but organise good local restaurants to bring in food to keep you working later, and a reasonable end of project bonus to keep you happy.

Their pension scheme seemed good (paid in about 1.5 times more than most IT companies at that time) but once I left I had to leave it and roll the money into another scheme, they made it pretty clear their fund was just for current employees. I put it in one that I setup with my father that I can access that in 9 months smile.

Hopefully their scheme in the UK is good and you can enjoy yourself in 8 months.

Sad to hear Graham, must admit i'm losing faith in MMC. Changing models to expensive replacements that loyal Morgan owners cannot afford and ditching equally loyal employees. I wonder how much longer they will last.
