I worked at Rockwell CollinsDoesn't RecommendNo opinion of CEODoesn't RecommendNo opinion of CEO
They are open to advancement when you show initiative and hard work. They pay very well for the area in comparison to cost of living. The engineering manager was always friendly and eager to help if you had any issues. They are very understanding in regards to personal time off. They are very family oriented and host various work functions throughout the year to build office comradery.
The office I worked in was off-site and there was little to no communication from the main office. The manager they put on site was hard to reach and only had meetings regarding company notices sporadically. I was supposed to be on contract for 6 months and then be hired on perm, however they continually drug the process out for 16 months before laying me off. They rarely, if ever, fulfilled their agreements with us as employees and were reluctant to give us slight raises in light of not having benefits when we had expected to have them. In my personal experience, they were a great place to get experience in the simulation side of GIS and a great place to gain leadership experience. However, they make a lot of promises that they do not fulfill and when you work off-site for them you are virtually unknown to the company. I would only work for them again if the position was full-time perm to start and it came with a salary increase, because the last 6 months working for them were some of the most stressful and frustrating of my 5 year career in the GIS field.
Advice to Management
If you agree to hire a person after 6 months, DO IT! Also, take time to better get to know your off-site employees, they might be better qualified than many you already have working in-house. Offer some form of compensation, when you continually push an employee's hire date back,. Many of us really could have used something to help offset medical and dental costs. Lastly, if you keep an employee on contract 10 months after you had previously agreed to hire them, when a lay-off occurs you should treat them as you would any other employee and offer some form of a severance package, after all they really should have been employees.
