Started out great then fizzled to extremely disappointing

Director of Engineering (Current Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

ProsGood compensation for younger employees
Well defined work and technical environment
Great ability to move around in the company
Good potential for international travel, if you like that kind of stuff

ConsHave decided to "global grade" the entire company which has resulted in significant benefit reductions for mid level senior engineers. Usually associated with multiple level demotions, loss of merit increases, and loss of executive bonus.
Also, relocation of company to smaller facility downtown. Senior engineers now being given 3'X4 work area instead of previous office work environment. Do I need to explain what "hot-desking" is?

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to you is what my parents gave to me. Think before you act. If you think you are going to get senior engineers to stay while demoting them, cutting their pay, and removing them from the executive bonus program you're mistaken. The gas turbine job market is huge on a world-side basis. All I had to do was wait a year, and I got a $33K raise and a 15% increase in my bonus, along with 401K, and company ownership equity. Good luck RR, you'll need it.

Regarding John Rishton, he just started so he hasn't had time to screw it up yet.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Rolls-Royce Mount Vernon is a toxic workplace. Other Rolls-Royce locations are 1000 years ahead.
