    I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    We have a lot of talent here and generally great co-workers. Good opportunities for co-ops and interns. Overall pay is good for the area. 401K benefits are good. Generous vacation if you stick around.

    Cons

    Like many companies, benefits are being reduced: more expensive health care plans, less holiday time, etc. Biggest issues are lack of on-site leadership; decision makers are slow to act or simply pass the buck; very UK centric so if an idea doesn't originate in Derby, good luck getting anywhere with it; mired in process to the extent that we make the US government look efficient; IT is laughable; HR is worse; workloads are immense for many; reluctance to fire inefficient workers or those who lack skill sets needed to do their current job; matching people to the skill sets needed for job is not HR's strong suit (come to think of it I'm not sure they have a strength); pay for certain areas of expertise is lower than industry standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Derby: Listen to your off-site locations as they have good ideas too. Remember you did acquire these companies for a reason. The US is not the UK, our culture is different. Streamline processes and get rid of bottlenecks. One word: ACCOUNTABILITY. Require decision makers to actually make decisions. Enable decision makers to be able to make decisions without having to go through 42 process steps to get there. Each site requires leadership on-site, not in Derby or Reston. Stop reorganizing every year. It takes longer than a year to implement and reap any intended benefits. Don't try to spin cost costing measures as improvements to work life (i.e. agile work force) and then insist we are more productive. Read Dilbert (it is a near perfect representation of your worker existence).
