Rockwell Collins offers a great work environment, opportunities for advancement and a friendly, team-oriented atmosphere

Test Technician (Current Employee)
Manchester, IA

ProsFlexible work hours, three weeks of vacation accrues from day 1, good benefit options at reasonable prices, 401k plan w/company match, health/dental/vision benefits from day 1, employees are accountable for their own success, high ethical standards.

ConsNo more vacation until after 15 years of service, mid-level leaders don't follow through with actions and things fall through the cracks -- good plans don't always come to pass, can be high-stress as high performance is expected along with good quality, even when workers are newly trained in a new position.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe willing to spend the money to make changes suggested by employees, when it comes to quality and performance. Many improvements could be made to documentation and equipment, but we are told that it's not in the budget and it never gets done. Follow-up on lean/quality actions is lacking. Many projects are started and never finished or are re-prioritized. Some mid-level leaders are not properly trained in project management; the project doesn't proceed in the proper fashion and there's no follow-up, so employees end up falling back into old habits, actions never get completed and we end up "re-creating the wheel" every couple of years.

    Good starting company, uncertain future

    Software Engineer II (Former Employee)
    Cedar Rapids, IA

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: - Good starting company for many engineers straight out of college. - Software engineers may find challenging work depending what department they are in. -… Cons: - If you have your sights on being in a break through industry or company this may not be the company for you. Long term… Advice to Senior Management: A few good and smart engineers easily replaces hundreds of "bodies". If you want to save money and keep your workforce then start hiring smarter.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
