    Flexible work hours and the ability to work from home are a great benefit that doesn't go unappreciated!

    Thank you for leaving this review. Sorry to hear that Iowa was not the right location for you. We certainly recognize that different people have different reviews of living in the Midwest. If ... More

    Pros

    Good Pay, Strong Mentoring program, and ability to move around and get promoted for high performers. They have made great strides since the new CEO took over in modernizing the facilities and tech capabilities for employees. They have implemented new HR policies that have reduced some of the barriers for moving around in the company also.

    Cons

    Even though improving, some of the facilities are still worn down. The benefits are also not terrible, but not great. 401k used to match 75%, now it's 50%. Medical insurance has also taken a nose dive.

    Advice to Management

    change your mindset and actually follow the new HR policies! Too often I still hear of management still following old guidelines! If you're going to manage a new generation of workers, you are going to have to adapt.

    Pros

    People - helpful and encouraging, eager to help.
    Technology - State of the art avionics, integration and support, with expansion into new areas.
    Management - Excellent leadership and direction.
    Work - challenging and rewarding.

    Cons

    All in all there isn't too much to say that is negative about the company.
    There is a lot of work to do with a significant amount of pending work possible, additional expertise will be required to address these new activities.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management at RCC has developed a work environment that is conducive to supporting new ideas and designs while still driving superior productivity and results.

    Pros

    Company with amazing history and great products. Successful in both commercial and government work. Room to grow, especially for engineers. New CEO has potential to bring a lot of good change to the company.

    Cons

    Midwest prejudice and exclusion attitude hold it back from being a truly international company. Bullying behavior such as yelling, berating, and backstabbing is tolerated. Salaries for technical but non-engineering positions are not competitive. Engineers treated like rockstars, everyone else not so much. Performance review system creates competition and bitterness among employees rather than fostering teamwork and loyalty to company.

    Advice to Management

    The corporate culture of Iowa is better than everyone else has to improve. It's great to be proud of your state and country, but not great to berate all other sites for not being in Iowa. If you want to be a global company, EVERYONE needs to start thinking globally not just those at international sites. Resistance to hiring at remote sites needs to stop.

    Pros

    Friendly, helpful employees that will show you everything you need to learn. Atmosphere is quiet and laid back. Salary is better than most and its a publicly traded company,so stock options are available as well as medical dental...etc

    Cons

    The software the company uses needs to be UPDATED.,little behind the times. Since the company was bought out it needs some uniformity within all offices and management needs to learn to speak with the employees...not just supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE! START HIRING!!

    Pros

    Amazing engineering infrastructure. Very high quality employees in general, in engineering. Very strong product portfolio - lots of work to do. Very interesting technologies to work with as well. All the best engineering tools are available.

    Cons

    Huge company. Definitely over-procedured. I've been here 5 years and I still don't have my arms around all the processes and procedures. Ambiguous chain of command. Lots of very young managers managing much older engineering population with mixed results. Support groups don't.

    Advice to Management

    Add a process (I know, another one) to vet management candidates and then train them adequately once they are promoted to the position. Eliminate Component Engineering and just let the engineers do the function. We do it now anyway, most of the time.
