Pros

The organization is generally cooperative with work life balance issues. It is an opportunity to work for an international organization.

Cons

The company is very political. Decision making seems to be made for personal rather than professional reasons. Talent level is poor. Working conditions in Indianapolis are horrible. The organization has been a dissapoinment to me on almost every level.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There are growing opportunities in the commercial and military markets right now. Commercial is booming, and Rolls-Royce is the leader for variable-cycle engine technology that the military wants and needs.

    Cons

    -Even in LibertyWorks, there is a huge bureaucracy under UK control
    -UK control seeps into every aspect of the company--reducing workers' and mangers' ability to make good decisions

    Advice to Management

    -Find ways to recognize people
    -Buy the company back from the UK, but partner with Rolls, in order to build a beneficial relationship


  2. "Started out great, then the forced ranking came in."

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Vacation time and holidays are better than at other sites. Lots of hands on work to do.

    Cons

    Forced ranking, no clear definition of company's direction, severe micromanagement, no accountability for those that can over rule.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the forced ranking, trust your component experts, hire more component engineers and fewer project engineers.
