    Happy at Rockwell Collins

    Principal Program Manager (Current Employee)
    Cedar Rapids, IA

    ProsGreat company to work for, ethical, honest, and stable. Multitudes of eciting and challenges roles in several fields. The balance between Government and Commercial markets continues to provide stability and opportunities for growth even in challenging economic times.

    ConsOccasionally viewed as overly conservative and engineering centric. Talent development and career advancement is a slow and measured process. Senior leadership is almost exclusively developed from within.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExpand focus on talent and leadership development with additional coaching, training, and career path mentoring.

    Great company to work for.... check out the rest of the industry and you would agree...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Richardson, TX

    Pros- Benefits package (medical, vacation, etc)
    - IPP
    - Open to change (with a business case)
    - Growing from a 'Product' company to an 'Integration' company
    - Commecial and Government portfolios

    Cons- Tends to be Cedar centric but that is changing
    - Not a risk-taker company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to open and accept change. Open up to some risk taking to stretch the boundaries (unleash energy)
