I worked at Rolls-Royce full-time

Pros

Interesting industry, products and customers. Very technology and engineering driven.

Cons

Senior management constantly changing priorities and strategies. A new round of headcount reductions every six - twelve months. Company is trying to offset cost problems by cutting headcount and compensation and benefits -- seems like management considers this to be the universal answer to everything. Support functions have been especially hard hit making it difficult for business units to get the information they need.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire a CEO who understands how high technology, capital intensive products are developed and delivered over the long run. Anyone can come in and just cut headcount. Trying to control all decision making from the UK undermines local leadership and career development.

    Former Employee - Machinist in Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at Rolls-Royce full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working with some of the brightest minds in the aerospace industry; Many opportunities to challenge yourself and make a difference. The benefits and wages are fantastic;

    Cons

    Working with a bloated UAW represented hourly workforce. Same old tired union distractions make it near impossible to get anything accomplished. As a highly skilled hourly machinist wanting to make a difference, it was very difficult to work with the company without being alienated and harassed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing everything you can to bust this sluggish union-culture up. Understand that there are some fantastic hourly workers that really want to see the company perform. Those things said, STOP OUTSOURCING WORK from Indy!! You can't see the full scope of the problems you are creating by doing this. Indy is fully capable.
