I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Supportive and dedicated managers with strong technical expertise. Ideal place for those who want to build technical breadth and their careers, particularly within Engineering - Quite a huge graduate intake every year - Good development /training programmes for graduates and managers - Vast opportunities to work internationally and gain exposure and understanding of global operations

Cons

- Remuneration may not be as attractive as competitors in the same field, however I think the global exposure and development opportunities offered makes up for it - Slow-paced environment (depending on which sector of the business you are in) - Needs a change in corporate culture, could do with more younger engineers and professionals - HQ is based in Derby, which isn't the most exciting city to live in. Short drive to the Peak District though

    I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are almost too many to list! - One of the most prestigious companies in the world - Long term prospects (£62bn order book, UK No 1 superbrand, set to double in size etc...) - Great sense of pride and dedication within the workforce - Some of the most demanding and genuinely interesting technical challenges to work on - Great projects on the horizon - Solid training and coaching framework.

    Cons

    Not everyone will love living in Derby City although it is definitely improving!

    Advice to Management

    Work to boost satisfaction in the youth workforce through centrally managed networking events (take this seriously)

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Rolls-Royce full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance is the only saving grace. New campus so at least it is a modern facility as compared to Derby, RRD or Indy.

    Cons

    Nepotism of former GM/Delfi employees/senior management in Purchasing Singapore who form their own club and protect each other so that top managemetnt does not have visibility of what's going on. No job real job prospects, they rotate staff around roles not based of qualification/skills but by whether they have headcount. Keeping desk cleanliness is more important than doing real work. The senior mgt is so free as to do floor inspections to make sure that people are working at their desks.

    Advice to Management

    None - Be prepared to lose talent.
