I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Excellent salary, challenging and rewarding rolls, good and supported progression, real responsibility right from the start of your career, high trust and autonomy. Bonus scheme is tangible and has delivered well over the past few years. Good corporate culture, and real pride of the company brand.

Cons

IT has been outdated for a while due to overly high levels of security, though this had improved dramatically in recent years.

Advice to Management

Some senior management seem to have different rules...

    Pros

    Strong community, an extensive breadth of knowledge within the company and everybody I came across is determined to learn as much as possible and provide the possible solution to a problem.

    Cons

    Due to the extensive engineering knowledge required to be part of the company, a lot of this talent disappears as people reach retirement.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be some sort of information collection database, so that important information can be inputted as people begin their leaving arrangements.

    Layers of management. You do not get to make much decisions yourself at all. bureaucratic. Bully type of managing style. Out of date to the rest of the world. Promotions are not always by capability. Management are not trustworthy. Do not value the people enough.

    Advice to Management

    Managing style really need to change to enable employee autonomy, faster decision making, higher efficiency.
