Management Heaven

Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Cedar Rapids, IA

I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than 10 years

ProsEmployed for now, maybe I can last until I retire... or find a job I enjoy.

ConsCuts to everything, benefits, pay, profit sharing, 401k, pension gone a few years ago, medical.
The culture has become one of duck and cover. No management support for engineers or their decisions. If someone in power does not like the answer you are out.
The corporate surveys are a joke, they ask no hard questions only feel good to make the company look responsive.
A recent restructure in Quality has led to knowledgeable workers being let go and idiots elevated.
Quality leadership has not one person with any experience in Quality operations. Absolutely doomed to fail.
Lean has become a power tool to destroy anything done by anyone with actual knowledge.
They added 4 more steps to the 4 step PDCA cycle... how Lean.
All proven quality tool and philosophies are renamed some from of Lean. Confusion is the result.
New tools which have shown excellent results are cast aside due to not invented here.
EVERY outsourced job has been a failure. The Indians and Chinese cant code verify, design. Several led engineers, technical manger senior technical managers were fired when they kept bring up issues and costs of the outsourcing and management refused to accept the problems.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire 70% of management and hold the rest accountable to become enablers to help the engineers and workers to perform... no micro manage or misuse their power to break their subordinates down. .

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Management out of touch and outdated

Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
Cedar Rapids, IA

I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than 3 years


Pros: Cedar Rapids is a god place to bring up family. Cost… Cons: Very tight and protective of old ways. Too much emphasis on process. The middle management and selected group of old engineers control the agenda.… Advice to Senior Management: My advice is to get real experts from outside of the companies. I know you think that everyone (technical staff and engineers) who has been… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
