Trade Slave (Current Employee) – Prince George, VA – July 11, 2018
Eat dirt. Place is a walking talking sesspool of awfulness. I hate it and all that it stands for. why or why did I ever think that this would be a place I wanted to enter into along my career path. gahhh
Accessory Technician (Current Employee) – Oakland, CA – July 10, 2018
Folllowing the Job Dispatch List. Determines what component to work first. I learned time management, in order to complete assignments in a timely fashion. It is a good environment. Team work everyone gets along with each other and helps out when asks to. When a component is not functioning the way the manual says it should. Reading steps over to make sure nothing was left out. When component passed functional test or when a employee brings donuts in the morning.
Management and leadership noticeably unexperienced.
Aircraft Technician (Current Employee) – Oakland, CA – July 4, 2018
Many people stay on certain jobs for years without training for advancement. Advancement to leadership positions are by the buddy system and not experience. Pay scales are erratic and unfair from one employee to another.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 23, 2018
Top-level management has grandiose ideas for the direction of the company, but seems to struggle with establishing SMART goals that align with the direction. There is not much scope for career growth within the company - though they have instated a promotion process, that itself has a relatively low ceiling. Employee resource groups exist, but lack enthusiasm from management.
Material Requirements Planner - Purchasing (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 5, 2018
I have loved my experience at Rolls-Royce. The opportunity I have had to spend my first position out of college is all I could have asked for. I have been really able to develop a great cross functional base for my career.

Software Project Lead (Former Employee) – Mount Vernon, OH – April 25, 2018
good technical leadership, average management. Cost and schecule were king. Maybe this has changed, but it was common place for employee burnout due to mismanagement of schedule and costs from the program side.
(contract) - Project Engineer - Cost Excellence (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 13, 2018
Job satisfaction varied with managers. RR relies on Contractors and many of the mangers were very good at working with them. Turbine blades and metallurgy represent the highest technology - and most expensive - product I ever worked on
Rolls-Royce was an excellent company to work for and had very good benefits
Proposal Manager (Former Employee) – Mount Vernon, OH – April 2, 2018
Rolls-Royce was an excellent company to work for with competitive salary and good benefits. R-R offered the ability to advance within the company, and provided the necessary training to allow for advancement. R-R did not do a good job with strategic planning in the marketplace and as a result began to lose market share.
