Passive agressive company. Friendly until the truth comes out.

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

Pros

Very conservative financially. The company does not take risks unnecessarily.

Cons

Management and culture are a mirage. Management is horrible. The answer to every bad plan is to ask people to work overtime. The culture is extermely politically oriented. There are a lot of marketing campaings to make employees believe things are great, but the sad reality is that there is a culture of fear everywhere you look. Many people have just given up. I would not be surprised if this company took a turn for the worse soon because management has surrounded itself with people who say yes wihtout questioning, and engineering has learned to hide the problems until they move on to another position.

    Pros

    Cheap area to live, starting benefits are pretty good. Good learning experience.

    Cons

    Promotions and raises are based on popularity and putting out fires rather than avoiding fires and doing a good job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less politics, develop a plan to get your employees involved rather than making them worker bees.
