HR is a great place to work in a company. I've met a lot of enjoyable employees.
Human Resources Assistant (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INMay 15, 2015
Pros: Enjoyable place to work. People are great.
Cons: Working downtown Indianapolis across from Lucas Oil Stadium
I have learned quite a bit working at Rolls-Royce. I have over 30 years customer service experience withing a lot of my roles. At the present time I'm a HR Rep. I've learned about benefits and dealing with uinon and non-union employees. I work in a SAP system. My co-workers are really enjoyable to work with. We have three teams all with their own expertise of different areas. The hardest part for me in this position is when I start to build the case I can only finish it if it's for my team. In most of my customer service roles, I've completed the calls from beginning to end. Doing work the way that Rolls-Royce does it means I don't see the outcome of the issue. I like to follow through and make sure that the customer was taken care of from my point of view. The most enjoyable part of my day is my co-workers and helping others with their isssues.

Thanks

No opportunity for advancement
Quality Inspector (Former Employee), IndianapolisApril 18, 2015
Pros: pays decent
Cons: poorly managed
No job stability. Poorly managed. The workforce is mostly hourly and the benefits are decaying. Just like many other jobs the brunt of cost reductions are being taken from the backs of the workforce. The roof leaks and safety standards are barely met, if at all.

Excellent workforce hampered by bureaucracy
MRPC (Current Employee), Oakland, CAApril 15, 2015
Pros: Good place to learn and carry out some 'best in class' practices.
Cons: Overall not a very agile organization.
Knowledgeable and dedicated employees who receive good compensation but are hampered by internal bureaucracy and industry regulations. While management does encourage 'thinking outside the box', there is little opportunity created to implement it.
Current centralized management system reporting to the UK via Indianapolis tends to prevent early adoption of new technologies/ideas and opportunities are missed.

In some areas employees assigned as Mentors were very helpful others not so much
Material Resource Planning Controller (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INApril 14, 2015
Pros: If you were a permanent employee you had access to the parking garage
Cons: No tution assistance provided but still wanted to promote education, experience counted for nothing if you were applying for a different position, only interested in considering applicants if they were degree
Typical day was informative, colleagues in most areas were very helpful and supportive, since this is a company that is headquarter in the UK the culture is totally different then North America, more of my way attitude and no compassion for employees with families or outside activities, no consideration for time difference, expectation was to be on conference calls on the day and then go home and work late into the night and weekends just to get the job done that you were hired to do.

NONE Productive
Design Manager - Designer IV (Former Employee), Mt. Vernon, Ohio 43050April 7, 2015
Pros: Space Pilot Pro
Cons: The Dirt Beneath the 2 Story Shed.
Too set in their ways (The Boy's Club) hindered by ghost progression while striving to be the foresight of innovation in a jet setting technological environment. MANAGEMENT and it's minions totally lost sight of the BIGGER Picture with the results as follows.

World Class Gas Turbine Manufacturer
Senior Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INApril 1, 2015
Pros: One of the best gas turbine manufacturers in the world.
Cons: Still has some old culture that holds it back in some areas.
Rolls, when I first got there, was stuck in the dark ages and had let the UAW control their every move. With time they began to advance, especially in the manufacture of turbine hardware.
They gave me the opportunity to create a new turbine blade grinding cell, which turned out to be world class and has been copied many times by other companies.

Cummins is a proven leader in industry and the community
Project Engineer - T56 Engine (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INJanuary 19, 2015
Pros: company has strong leadership, is a market leader, with expanding portfolio. personal and career development both greatly supported.
Cons: customers are often competitors as well making for complicated partnerships.
Typical day can start with a supplier call to discuss potential design, meetings with component and service engineer to understand failure mode, and a chat with subject matter expert to develop validation plan. Management provides the guidance for success and for growth. Co-workers are a constant source of useful information and water-cooler chit chat. The hardest part of the day may be trying to coordinate the implementation of new product from overseas supplier to multiple plants. The most enjoyable part of the day is lunch with team-member at our favorite local eatery.

Large ship with small keel not allowing creative thinking manuevering
Manager, Defense Aftermarket (Former Employee), Indianapolis, INDecember 31, 2014
Pros: a push for collaboration by physical environment is evident
Cons: coordination between functions -
Overall this company is a solid blue chip company. However, management layers prevent quick decisions on small projects. Strategies are dictated, not collaborative in nature and employees have little empowerment to make change. Another stifling element is the amount of meetings for the individual contributor. Takes away from their day to day tasks. Enjoyed the technical elements of the job and the customer service organization is top of their class for an aerospace company.
