    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Mostly, fantastic people: friendly and hardworking; - The culture allows you to work as much as you want, and provides you the opportunity to learn more, should you look for it.

    Cons

    - Although some managers are fantastic, some are somewhat questionable, or under so much pressure that they to do not have the necessary time, or disposition to properly guide their people. - Rolls-Royce is unionised, meaning you will be paid as everybody else to begin with, and your growth (both financially and in terms of title/career), although influenced by your aptitude, will highly depend on your time spent there. - Sometimes, there are too many people who are not interested in career growth, and are fine cruising. This does NOT mean that they would be lazy or anything as such (necessarily), but it does mean that regardless of whether something is absolutely critical, people will leave after their 7.5 hours - this culture is instilled by the way people are paid, and how careers evolve under the union, and it might not fit everybody.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Rolls-Royce full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Many cash benefits, Job security.

    Cons

    Lack of formal teaching for the white collar office work, they just drop you in the deep end. High pressure at deadlines. Don't expect promotions unless you are good at writing loads of waffle in boarding packs (I'm not).

    Advice to Management

    Some mid managers are awful, and take things too seriously. Some processes are over complex. Pressure to improve often leads to reduced efficiencies.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Rolls-Royce full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great people with a genuine passion for what they do, varied work and I think a good plan/strategy for the future.

    Cons

    Poor renumeration, very difficult to progress, lack of personal development opportunities beyond "on the job" opportunities and generally a lack of respect for work-life balance when it comes to planning job moves, amongst other things.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with your employees, understand what is good and what is bad and actually do something with the bad otherwise they will continue to vote with their feet.
