    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Brand association, modern offices, congenial and friendly people, extensive on-line training, stable employment and good career prospects in the main, they are making serious effort to improve diversity, outstanding early career programmes, lots of highly skilled and capable people in the business, strong order book.

    Cons

    Very risk averse culture and lack of pace. Promotion criteria often 'time served' rather than 'meritocracy'. Too many "lifers" who are institutionalised and following processes but not contributing value or moving with the times and who are still allowed to hang around another 10-15 years to collect their pensions whilst clogging the way for people who can ensure the company is fit for future. HR corporate is under-resourced so limited possibility to "get out in the business" or build relationships with operations managers etc. Job could have been amazing, it was a tough decision not to tread water for another couple of years until John Rishton's influence permeated to my seniors.

    Advice to Management

    Actively manage performance in HR corporate so that focus is on "outcomes" not "effort/process". Look outside the company from time to time, complacency kills businesses. Embrace modern technologies and unleash the potential of ALL generations in the workplace, you have loyalty and engagement scores most companies would die for - trust that your employees will be respectful and appropriate in their use of modern technology.

    I worked at Rolls-Royce as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You are right where important things happen. Work is very interesting and you learn a lot of things in a small amount of time.

    Cons

    People were a little bit cold and distant at first, it took me almost all the length of my internship to be recognised as a part of the team
