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

Pros

Interesting products for design engineers

Cons

Too much bad politics. Management seems to focus on negatives and ignore the positive contributions. Have seen instances of incorrect information being passed through to hiring managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior Management out-of-touch. Still mentally in the 1980s GM mode.

    Pros

    As an engineer at Rolls-Royce, your job role may range from a highly technical role (fluid systems analyst) to report writing. In any role, however, you are guaranteed to be constantly learning. The Indianapolis campus produces several of its own engines, designed by the former Allison Engine Company (bought out by Rolls-Royce in the mid 90's). However, the Indianapolis team is in the process of becoming more globally-oriented. Therefore, depending on your role, you may work, to varying degrees, using the British, American, or German design process. This provides good opportunities for not just technical learning but also process and intercultural learning. The company invests a large amount in R&D, making it

    Cons

    The company is slow to adopt change in software and functions quite bureaucratically. These factors are understandable and typical of large corporations, but can have a significant effect on work efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider ways to act more efficiently with respect to development work

    Pros

    Higher than average pay, great career growth opportunity in many industries across the globe, caring executives that want to help you succeed in your personal growth plan. Ok benefits.

    Cons

    Large corporation that has the usual cumbersome policies that make change slow. Individual sectors/divisions have tailored policies and information systems so finding correct information takes longer( company working to improve this and it has gotten much better over the last several years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share divisional long-range plan at detailed level frequently with very refined and understandable message, Have project management metrics and tool use on every employees professional development plan to center the business around performance as this will take away the resistive pockets and highlight areas in the business that need raod blocks and bottlenecks removed.
