    I worked at Rolls-Royce full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A large company with significant international presence. Opportunities to work in many different disciplines/functions. A fantastic brand name - which is a major reason why folks want to work with the company. Engineering excellence is a hallmark of the companies psyche. Not too much oversight (in general) as to whether you are doing the hours - more focus that you are achieving your objectives. However this very much depends on the particular manager that you report to. Some real interesting/characters work at RR so there is plenty of opportunities to interact with folks from various backgrounds.

    Cons

    Not the best pay/perks compared with others in the same space - but folks seem to remain there regardless. Leadership had, until the last 12 months, been great. Maybe due to financial pressures - resulting in panic measures - leadership has 'lost its way'. For new prospects wanting to join the company - I would advise that you must make your mark and take control of your destiny otherwise you will be sidelined. Workplace environment is mediocre at best. General apathy across the patch results in a relatively mundane/boring environment. It is the newcomers that want to generate 'excitement' - but become disappointed when the population remains complacent and happy with things the way they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Performance reviews, followed by forced distribution, is an absolute insult to the workforce, the company and to any organization that professes to 'value its employees'. Stop it - other world class companies have so learn from them. Treat employees with the respect they deserve and allow managers to manage their teams without undue influence. Folks, in general, wake up each day wanting to do a good job - so help them in making that a reality. Regarding office culture - stop beating the 'employee comes first drum' unless you mean that to be the case. Just reflect back upon when you started to work and what your expectations/desires were and see if you now are a solution provider as opposed to a disappointer.
