Current Employee - Software Engineer in Tustin, CA

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.

    Former Employee - Enterprise Sourcing Intern in Cedar Rapids, IA
    Former Employee - Enterprise Sourcing Intern in Cedar Rapids, IA

    I worked at Rockwell Collins as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    As an intern, RC was very pro-active on getting me involved. By the time my 3 months with them was done, I was able to complete the same job as a man that had worked there for 5 years.

    Cons

    Since I am a business marketing major, there was no room for me with the company when my internship was completed. Not having an engineering background instantly weeded me out of the competition.
