Engineer in Romsey, Hampshire
on 14 September 2022
Fun work but little pay
You get the opportunity to change projects regularly and learn new skills. This can be at your request or, depending on the project, it may be due to customer requirements. Don't expect to be doing the same job year after year because you may be required to do different things.In general, the management is good. The middle managers will listen to your issues and pass them on. When it comes to higher management, it really varies. Sometimes they will refuse to move and other times they will grant a request without question. The pay is quite poor in comparison to other companies. But if you stay with the company a long time I think you will be rewarded with the benefits package they offer.

Roke are a good company to work for
Roke would suit people with interest in innovative thinking and lots of opportunities to use innovative ideasThe areas highly recommended are in cyber security and machine learning and there are lot of opportunities in the IOT arena.

Generally good, but with some poor areas.
This company is ahead in some ways and, in others, stuck in the past."Resourcing" treats you like livestock. No career unless you're a favourite. Some good tech being done but you don't get much of a say in what you do, it's all about reshuffling people to get the maximum money in.

Once good, now poor
This employer was once excellent - but times change and now they are generally poor to very poor in my view. You will be treated exclusively as a "Resource", replaceable and transferrable at a project manager's or Resourcing's wish. Line management didn't work at all for me. They will usually forget to attend, and have no knowledge of what you do. I don't think you can succeed here unless extremely lucky. Many top engineers have left in the last year, and many more are presently all looking to leave.The only people who seem to stay long-term are those who are not confident they could find work elsewhere. The company is financially strong, but bizarrely refuses to invest in its staff. Pay is extraordinarily low. Benefits are minimal (as a grad... no health insurance even - ask how I know!). Training is well - absent.A key issue is all decisions are made by directors, with intermediate managers little more than mailmen, passing messages to and fro. Those in the positions to try and make a change (heads of engineering) are particularly poor in their role, and believe the company is near perfect (many have been there a long time and have no other industry experience, so interesting how they reached that conclusion).The day to day is easy but you're being so poorly paid for it, I don't think it's worth it. Not long left now and I won't have to think about it again!Oh, and recently they've decided (unilaterally, without asking everyone) to force everyone back onto site, regardless of whether you actually need to be on site or not, multiple days per week, regardless of convenience. I really don't know why, I think productivity went down!I think most people are here because they had no other offers available.
