    I worked at Rolls-Royce full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has a well developed Programme Management Framework. It strongly supports the development of its people working in this function, to the point of putting some people through a MSc qualification in Project Management.

    Cons

    The organisation needs to be more disciplined in following the great framework it has developed.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the framework, especially when it comes to reviewing projects. It's a good framework.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rolls-Royce (Indianapolis, IN (US)).

    Interview

    The hiring process took about 10 weeks from application to offer acceptance. It was the most unorganized process I've ever experienced, but I'd like to think this is due to 1 inefficient recruiter.

    Applied in August and received an email request for a phone interview 2 weeks later. About a week later I received an email request from a different recruiter for a face-to-face interview in Indianapolis. Within a day or so they had organized my flight and hotel and forwarded me interview confirmation.
    I interviewed about a week later.
    The interview was easy. They asked questions about my background, told me about the position and their expectations and gave me a brief tour of the facility. Most of the discussion was me asking questions.
    The day after my interview I received an email from the initial phone interview recruiter stating that I will no longer be in contact with her (or the second recruiter) but will need to contact a new person going forward. okay....
    I received an offer the next day via phone, but didn't receive the letter for a week. I countered the very next day and didn't receive an update for a week. This negotiation untimeliness made this process extremely long and tiring. When I was lucky enough to get in touch with the new recruiter she was disorganized and untimely. We went back and forth over PTO, base salary and start date. Start date constantly changed because it took so long for them to counter.

    Final paperwork was signed on week 10 and I started 2-3 weeks later.
