The RCI site has a lot of potential and there are many great employees but serious problems exist at a management and HR level. Problems are swept under the rug causing morale to suffer. A few changes within Senior management and HR department would make a big difference
Many managers have low expectations of staff and it is possible to get by with minimum effort. More emphasis is placed on social activities than actual work. This might be considered a Pro by some.
Pension scheme is good
High staff turnover
Strong distrust between staff and HR
Lack of genuine career development
Office politics out of control
Hard work is rarely valued or rewarded
A lot of the work is not true R&D
Demanding roles, tasked with developing and improving R&D product design. Tight schedules and availing of Agile project planning strategy. Not enough resources to manage workload. Systems improvements and IT infrastructure requirements need to be developed further. Quality and Documentation generation always demand effort.
Great Atmosphere, good teamwork
Long hours - Chaotic schedule - Multiple project assignments
