I worked at Rolls-Royce full-time

Pros

Interesting industry, products and customers. Very technology and engineering driven.

Cons

Senior management constantly changing priorities and strategies. A new round of headcount reductions every six - twelve months. Company is trying to offset cost problems by cutting headcount and compensation and benefits -- seems like management considers this to be the universal answer to everything. Support functions have been especially hard hit making it difficult for business units to get the information they need.

Advice to Management

Hire a CEO who understands how high technology, capital intensive products are developed and delivered over the long run. Anyone can come in and just cut headcount. Trying to control all decision making from the UK undermines local leadership and career development.

    I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time

    Pros

    There are managers that care about their people. If you find one of these managers, you will do well and have opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    As with most large global companies, it is hard to get buy-in to your process improvements because others believe they know best.
