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

Pros

Flexible 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.

Cons

No 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 ManagementAdvice

Be 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.

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    they are located in the mid-west. the pay is average as are the benefits. you may find pockets of healthy interaction here and there, but it's been rare. avionics industry is more efficient than the auto industry, but not by much, and that's not saying a lot.

    Cons

    overly bureaucratic, strong sense of entitlement in this 'good old boys club'. Overall, an unhealthy place to work with the IT department being downright sick.
