I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Exceptional CEO - Clay Jones is a charismatic, focused and driven leader Strong financial position of the company Great work life balance

Cons

Iowa/Cedar Rapids centric culture Lacking in true Global Diversity

Advice to Management

If Rockwell Collins wants to become a global company, you should focus on building a globally diverse senior leadership structure. The focus of diversity at Collins appears to be based on skin color as opposed to building a true and exceptional workforce that has strong global work experiences. Company should look outside its walls to attract & retain senior leaders.

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

    Pros

    - High job security in most area - Friendly co-workers - Frequently, I am working on cool/fun/challenging engineering, and trying to make a product within the constraints given that I can be proud of.

    Cons

    - Frequent "highly suggested for a good year end review" overtime. Not mandatory b/c then they would legally have to pay you. - Blocking people from transferring to another job within Rockwell fairly often. - Management pushing employees to sign off on things they don't agree with.

    Advice to Management

    - Need to follow standards/process everyday, not try to find ways short-circuit it to meet deadlines. This usually comes back with more work, time, problems, and cost than the time that was supposedly saved. - Do not block transfers to other orgs within Rockwell. If someone is told they can't transfer from a job they don't like, their next recourse is to leave, which is happening frequently now.
