    Pros

    Very friendly environment, they train you in the things you'll be doing and some more. You'll walk out with a smile and more knowledge.

    Cons

    The salary can be a bit better for the full time positions (from what I saw) and they should give a bit more room for moving around in the facility

    Advice to Management

    Keep what you are doing, motivate your engineers, increase your worker's benefits and create a better hiring procedure. The current one is not that good.

    Pros

    The facilities at Rolls-Royce are, as you'd expect, phenominal. In the first 2 months I have been trained on CNC milling, manual milling, attended college (foundation degree) twice and i'm about to take a weeks holiday. The environment is one of trust and responsibility, but also one full of experienced characters who are all so keen to help. As a higher, I have been given my own laptop and although it only works on site (for security reasons) It is still incredibly humbling and useful. Despite the company is currently at a low point as the CEO, John Rishton, has announced a short fall in profit. That said, spirits are high and attitude is exceptional as ever.

    Cons

    I feel there is a lack of leadership. We have to figure our own problems out which is as expected. However, when the coolant tank needs emptying by site services and we are in week one of our job I feel it is a bit steep to make us faf around for 2 days trying to sort it out when we have got assessed tasks to be completing.

    Advice to Management

    Though independance is an important quality in any aspect of life, you cannot learn to run if you havent yet walked. I feel like a little more guidance is needed for the first few steps, then we can do the rest.
    The lack of ADL made it increasingly stressful for the first few weeks, especially as mine was only declared 3 weeks ago, I know some people are still waiting to find out theirs. I feel this should be sorted before the apprenticeship start and an introduction to your ADL would have been useful on the induction day.
    It may be wise to sort something with Derby College in order for the laptops to work there. It would make completing college work at home much easier if we could have it all in one place. At the moment it is all fairly daunting - combined with the relocation, the work load from both Rolls-Royce and college.
