    Strong business with lots of opportunities, but communication could use a little work.

    Pros

    Good company that is easy to be proud of working for. Interesting work in a lot of places and the management is willing to move you around to an extent to find the niche for you.

    Cons

    Difficult relationships with coworkers. Rockwell's fragmented buildings makes communication hard and reduces your ability to really feel comfortable. Too reliant on electronic communication and the knowledge gets locked up in the highest performers. Nearly impossible to break into "the trusted circle" if you don't have an abundance of knowledge already. Creates a Catch 22, if you need training, you can't get it, but to get training from the top, you have to already know the material.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When the government systems department reduced team size, things get better to an extent. 40 person teams were too big. The remaining problem was that the teams were in direct competition with each for workers. The teams shouldn't be split to have two competitive teams, they should be complementary.

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins

    Pros

    Paid time off, especially during the Christmas time frame when the entire company shuts down for a week. Depending on your manager, the hours are very flexible.

    Cons

    Senior leadership seems to be questionable at times. Since HQ is in Cedar Rapids, and RC is pretty much the only game in town, it is difficult to get promotions as well as an increase in pay. Rockwell emphasizes diversity, which is a very broad term, however, when you look at it from an ethnicity stand point, it is very poor when it comes to ethnic diversity.
