Exciting and interesting work but constant poor upper management in the UK hinders job performance and satisfaction.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Reston, VA

Pros-Fantastic people; hard-working, intelligent, and fun
-Interesting work
-Amazing products
-Great office location

ConsNearly all of the cons are related to parent company (Rolls-Royce plc) not understanding the US market or management problems in the UK:
- terrible healthcare (may be similar to market in Indianapolis (large Rolls-Royce facility) but not similar to DC market;
- low pay for the work performed;
- horrifyingly poor IT (Reston team has much better IT than corresponding teams in UK);
- incredibly bureaucratic organization that hinders employees ability to respond to the needs of both the business and its customers;
- global company that cannot seem to understand how to function outside the UK.

Advice to Senior ManagementRolls-Royce North America is a wonderful place to work but major management problems at Rolls-Royce plc are sending great employees running (both in the US and the UK). Learn from your divisions in the US and Germany: decisiveness is good, invest in technology for employees to do their jobs more effectively (not just R&D for products), and understand that employees do have choices. Also understand that it is not a complement that customers describe the firm as British.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
