    Pros

    Good people, bad tools and procedures.

    Cons

    Terrible tools and procedures. 19th century tools and procedures in a 21st century world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you screw up and buy the wrong tool, bite the bullet, fix it and move on.

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers and winter shutdown. Probably a good place if you're fresh out of college.

    Cons

    Too much responsibility given to offshore contract workers (not qualified for majority of the tasks).

    Below average pay.

    Promotions based on seniority rather than skill/knowledge.

    Long hours due to poor analysis/requirements and overly optimistic scheduling.

    Some co-workers are unprofessional. They will claim completion on incomplete tasks (to fulfill a goal for their annual review), and end up passing the buck to another employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to use contract workers, hire local US employees. Don't allow unqualified engineers to continually write confusing non extendable software.

    Stop believing that any engineer can accomplish any task. Instead, assign engineers to tasks that fit their strengths.
