    nice co-workers, horrid bosses and management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Carrollton, TX

    ProsI worked with some very nice people, and made a couple of friends that will be friends for life.

    Consthe management lies, HR lies, some of the people are just horrid, and oh, by the way, the good old boy network is the ONLY way to move up in the company. If you aren't part of their little clique, forget it. If you are, who cares if you are qualified for the job! Pass over the qualified people, and give the job to the pet. I have never seen such a thing in a large company. In a small family company, sure, you can get away with that, but in a large corporation, there are supposed to be rules against that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the incompetent managers. Pay attention when problems are brought to your attention - don't fire the people that tell you about it and hope the problem goes away.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Maybe RC will make it better - but it does not look like it will happen anytime soon

    Senior Manager (Current Employee) Annapolis, MD

    ProsNice location and still some very good people remain
    Some areas have exciting projects
    Alternate work schedule (AWS) to get every other Friday off
    decent pay for the area

    ConsToo many to list......
    cash sucked out by by Carlyle
    morale very low
    too many employees making more than their market value (as new employee you will be frustrated by this)
    everyone in a wait and see approach for what Rockwell Collins will do, so no one working
    AWS abused to the point no work happens on Fridays
    service/products, having had no capital investment the past 6yrs, are suffering.

    Advice to Senior Managementget out - take your 'parachutes' and go
    give back to the world and stop gaining at the expense of others.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sell Out

    Senior Director (Former Employee) Annapolis, MD

    ProsIt's a job, and in this day and age, that's important

    ConsToxic environment where the good old boys are just waiting for the company sale and their chance to cash out. Senior management at this company - if you want to call them that, is a complete clown show. This is the most poorly managed large company I have ever been associated with. Everything has been reduced to money today, and the future and the employees have been mortgaged for the gain of the few at the top. Meanwhile, projects and departments are going to hell and they are trying to hold things together until they can sell the company and unload the shambles of this turd on the next guy. At that point the clean-up and rehabilitation will hopefully begin. Just about anyone worth their salt has left or is trying to leave. My advice would be to stay away until the situation is clearer once the new owner is announced. Then things can get better or worse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMove on, you owe your employees better. Let someone come in that actually cares about the people and the future of the business.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Executive management disgraceful

    Senior Director (Former Employee)

    Pros- 70+ year history of corporate pride and accomplishment (except for last several)
    - Career diversity and some great employees still remaining

    Cons- Executive management unethical and motivated only by self interest.
    - Catastrophic loss of 10+ year employees last several years and steep decline in business and moral
    - Nepotism throughout upper management
    - Many of the strongest leaders and leadership candidates no longer with company
    - Future unknown as company needs to rebuild from the top down

    Advice to Senior ManagementRetire!

    Great workers, executive leadership poor.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsUsed to be a great company that treated employees well until The Carlye Group purchased the company and it went down hill from there.

    ConsExecutive leadership is very poor and is not honest with employees. There is no strategic outlook and the focus is EBIT and cash for stakeholders.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSell the company as fast as you can

    High Turnover

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Huntsville, AL

    ProsVery profitable company. Maybe more management oriented in the corporate office. Outlying offices need more oversite by upper management. Employees are not treated fairly.

    ConsOffice outside of corporate have no HR to report issues. Mangement does whatever it wants. Does not develop people, and low balls people on salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your people, and get some HR in your offices. People need to know that they can talk to someone with out losing their job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Horrible place to work...poor and incompetent mgt!

    Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsDo not have to have qualifications to get job since they put anyone in a position without no relevant work experience.

    Cons- Poor management direction
    - Pay is very low so they typically hire individuals with little or no experience
    - Do not listen to staff on best practices
    - Plays favorites with certain employees - especially if your personality is what they like
    - Got some real idiots leading management - no or little experience in the areas they lead

    Advice to Senior ManagementUp your pay scale, hire talented people with right skill sets, stop your mgt's corrupt and incompetent direction.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
