    Pros

    Great work-life balance with opportunity to move across functions given the focus on developing your career. Leadership is relaxed and easy-going, while supportive toward team and individual goals.

    Cons

    Slow-paced environment with lagging results, mainly due to the nature of the aerospace industry. Leadership does very little in breaking down process barriers for roles that execute daily tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Seek better understanding of process barriers at the ground level.

    I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Clean environment, good PTO, not going to break a sweat. Equipment is all fairly new. Pay is good

    Cons

    Basically a machine operator not a real machinist. Management is horrendous. Communication is terrible. Managers and Engineers give you different information constantly. Takes forever to get issues fixed on machines. Did I mention management is terrible? No sick leave, have to use PTO for everything. Management is terrible. Not a lot of chances to move up, only 3 “Levels” if pay as a laborer. Management is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, they run the machines every day. Stop focusing so much on production and fix problems before pushing to get machines back running. You preach “stop and fix” but never want to actually stop and fix. Stop talking down to your employees that are making you look good year after year.

    I worked at Rolls-Royce full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Can be very flexible depending on your manager. Most people are very nice and friendly. Good 401k match and benefits. Large company with good name recognition. Lots of opportunities to move internally.

    Cons

    Poor management throughout the company. The poor management has created an apathetic, cynical culture in which many people are coasting through their careers with sub-par work ethic.

    Being a large company can also be considered a con in that everything moves very slowly. It can be difficult to accomplish tasks, especially if you are relying on assistance from a business unit other than your own. Different business units very much act as their own businesses and don't always work well together.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and support your employees.

    I worked at Rolls-Royce full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Clean building to work in downtown, with an attached parking garage.

    Cons

    It is unfortunate that the management of the Indianapolis site is so frightened and disingenuous that they have managed remove multiple negative Glassdoor reviews. It seems a negative review will appear, and then a few weeks later it goes away. They clearly are not able to understand that much of their workforce is dissatisfied with their performance and are trying to speak out. The proof is in the data; simply look at the shrinking workforce and manufacturing output. The Indianapolis management is reads these reviews, becomes frightened, and rather than addressing the problems, they are burying these reviews and their heads in the sand.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Rolls management needs to fire these men, because they are not getting the job done. Again, look at the data for proof.
