    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best parts about working there was the ethics policies that everyone happily integrated into working life making it a very comfortable place to work and learn. All teams were made of long standing employees of the company which gave the place a good friendly feel with a really good work output.

    Cons

    The salaries started really quite low and took a little bit too long to climb up to an appropriate level without having to go down the leading/management routes to achieve appropriate salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very little useful advice could be given... Perhaps a more accurate way of assessing keen talent/ skills and upping their salaries accordingly would be the icing on the cake in such a good workplace.
