I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

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

Cons

Cuts 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 Management

Fire 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. .

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people, great benefits, interesting projects and products in exciting industries such as aviation and military. Opportunities to work in a number of locations.

    Cons

    Salaries are seemingly low. Advancement is slow and bogged down by policies. Company strategy also at times is overly conservative, leading to loss of contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Open up the strategy - be more willing to invest in new technologies and markets without guaranteed return up front. Recognize up and coming employees for their accomplishments.


  2. Good Company, Still Has Plenty of Politics

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Rockwell Collins is a great company to work for. Good benefits, great coworkers. Lots of opportunity for bonuses. Good room to grow vertically or horizontally. The group I was a part of did a great job finding a good fit for each employee.

    Cons

    There still is plenty of corporate politics. Often slow to implement change. Annual review process was always changing and often unclear why it had changed. Other groups located elsewhere didn't have the same work ethic as those in Cedar Rapids.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to lower level employees. (The skip level meetings that were held are a good thing.)
