I have been working at Rockwell Collins as an intern for more than 3 years

Pros

The great thing is that they do not micro manage you.

Cons

As an intern you are heavily underpaid and under appreciated for doing the same job as everyone else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Raise the hourly salary for an intern to compete with other firms and make more ways to appreciate your employees.

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time for 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.
