I have been working at Rolls-Royce

Pros

great product once it leaves the door

Cons

processes trump the projects or product. Common sense is completely absent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the people who do the work, let them talk wiythout fear of retribution.
Do not listen to the managers who tell you what you want to hear.

    Great people, poor senior leadership

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Engineering in Mount Vernon, OH
    Current Employee - Engineering in Mount Vernon, OH

    I have been working at Rolls-Royce

    Pros

    people are generally good to work with, lots of opportunity to learn across a wide range of disciplines if there is ambition to do so

    Cons

    Process-driven to the point where administrative tasks are the bulk of engineering jobs. Very poor decision making by senior management, as well as being "out of touch". Extreme amounts of politics between departments and management.

    It is a job

    • Comp & Benefits

    Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Mount Vernon, OH

    I have been working at Rolls-Royce

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology applied to product
    Customers are global
    Interactions with customers are always varied
    The product is custom engineered so each contract is different,
    There is always an opportunity to interact with customers and solve unique engineering problems

    Cons

    Even though the Mount Vernon product is not used for aviation, the decisions made by the culture tend to be conservative, risk averse and err on the side of safety.
    Other companies in the aero-derivative equipment market have significantly leaner cost structures and better market share.
