    Pros

    Agile work environment. Starbucks on site.

    Cons

    Still the good ole boys club.

    Advice to Management

    Most females who endure being paid less than the males and who also receive no respect from their Manager’s are more productive and efficient than male co-workers. Rolls Royce allows talent to walk out the door for this reason. Other companies recognize and compensate females for their contributions. Rolls Royce Indianapolis does not.

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

    Pros

    Smart and motivated people. Lots of resources, if you can find them. Great work life balance, and most managers are flexible. Its obvious upper managment is trying to change things for the better, but a lot of lower level management are not on-board.

    Cons

    Red tape makes things really slow. Almost impossible to change something, even if most people agree that it needs changing. Day to day activities and work style can vary wildly depending on your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Train managers in leadership, as well as management.
