A 'nice' company that struggles with IT, poor communication and the ability to change quickly

    I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time (more than an 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
