    I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, stable company, people seem to care what they do.

    Cons

    Agile work environment means no one has a space to call their own.

    Advice to Management

    Work on on boarding process. Give people the access they need right away, not have them hit a brick wall, and then figure out what they need to do their job. Some processes seem to take forever as people are not sure of who needs to be asked for what.
