No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Rolls-Royce as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best reason to work a Rolls-Royce was the Free Coffee initially, but they shortly did away with that, seriously.

    Cons

    Working conditions - getting away with NOT paying time/half, double time. Being lied to about length of contract.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up, be professional. Treat employees like they should be treated, be honest. I was so excited to work for someone like RR, BUT after this experience have changed my mind 1000% very very very disappointed.
