    Former Employee - Rework in Chichester, England (UK)

    I worked at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    they do look fantastic,but look closer.

    Cons

    would there be so many rave reviews if the customer knew how these were finished on the rework end of the line and just how many BMW stamped parts made up these cars, it is unacceptable to build £250000 and upwards,cars that need to be reworked with super glue, double sided tape and levering and hitting and prying the front end with a 3 foot long lever bar in an attempt to straighten out the poor panel fitment gaps, ghost and wraith, i was gobsmacked to see this,do it right first time on the line ,no excuses, its just not on, a very poor show indeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend as long as it takes on the production line to get it right so you eliminate the antics that go on at the rework finesse end of the line, and sort out the tool trolleys,it looks like some one has emptied a tool box contents and left them strewn around the rework line,and one pair of panel pin pliers? really.

    I have been working at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Its a great place to work as its at the very top of the motor industry. Knowing that I have involvement in making the finest cars in the world is the biggest pro. When I tell friends and family I work there I cannot help but smile. its a very fair place to work and I get to meet a huge variety of people from all walks of life. With so many diverse opportunities here its easy to find the right career path to take and be happy with.

    Cons

    Challenges include the fact we are building these cars completely by hand, no robotic input, So finessing the final product to achieve the desired perfect results is sometimes hard. its also sometimes difficult to have the correct work-life balance due to meeting customer demands at particular times of the year. Training could be a little better, training sometimes happens on the job which makes meeting deadlines difficult sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    although our stand down time is there to follow the demands of our customers it can sometimes cause a bottleneck effect. It might be better to spread work load throughout the year a little more evenly so that we can ensure we are efficiently producing the best cars to the highest quality.

    I have been working at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Career opportunities.
    Excellent personal benefits like the pension schemes , bmw employee discounts , vehicle schemes
    Very good senior management, friendly and respectful to staff members
    Great teams of associates to work with.

    Cons

    The kiosk and canteen could be improved , especially the coffee :-)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kiosk and canteen on the assembly line break times available ONLY for associates especially on 15 min tea breakes. Waiting in the cue behind office staff takes the a major part of the short break.

    I worked at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great heritage, brilliant product. One in a lifetime chance of being driven in one. Great multi-cultural environment. Very relaxed work life. Very scenic although quite rural location.

    Cons

    Dominant bureaucracy, changes are not accepted lightly, the design and engineering is outsourced to BMW, Germany. More is discussed rather than acted upon. Progression from graduate to middle-management position takes about 7-10 years and requires fluency in German. Very little support provided.

    Pros

    Inspiring place to work with associates who love the car.
    Factory and offices are lovely buildings and comfortable places to work.

    Cons

    Pay well below average as people just want to work here
    Few if any opportunities for progression as people generally stay for a long time.
