    Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Cedar Rapids, IA

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with! Neat technology opportunities...

    Cons

    Upper managers stifle innovation
    Still a "good ole' boy" network of leaders - if you aren't in the "club', you'll be excluded.
    Lack of grace - to allow mistakes, to grow skills, to learn new skills, to broaden your opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rotate - move key people around more often to experience different roles. Make it intentional to rotate, especially within the systems engineering rank and file and enterprise roles (process, tools, quality, safety, training, etc); move leaders around to experience different parts of the organization - both between business units and geographically. You might just break down the barriers that have been erected between teams!
