    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits package was good here. Compensation wasn't bad, but could have been better. I enjoyed my job and the things I learned while working here. Overall, I was satisfied working here.

    Cons

    The job could be very stressful at times. Our office was separate from the main office in Cedar Rapids, so it was difficult at times to create consistent processes, but solutions were being worked to this problem as I was leaving the company.

    Pros

    Good opportunities to move around different departments at the non-managerial level

    Excellent education assistance program

    Good compensation for top performers

    Cons

    Promotion to managerial levels depends too much on network of contacts and mentor support

    Frequent reorganizations and/or changes in job titles (with little to no prior communication) can lead to career path disruption

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everybody is very friendly and willing to work with you to get the job done. Great online university through the company that helps better you as a person and makes you a more valuable asset for the company.

    Cons

    Manufacturing floor seems outdated and could use some capital investment. I still see a lot of "fire fighting" when it comes to engineer work but I've seen that industry wide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update facilities, If you bring in new technologies and modern devices that the newer generation is using in school and at home, you will see an increase in the amount of people that want to work for you and the quality of the people that want to work for you.
