    Current Employee - Systems Engineer II in Cedar Rapids, IA
    Current Employee - Systems Engineer II in Cedar Rapids, IA

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

    Pros

    - Jobs available in commercial or government applications, balance the company when either sector is down
    - If you have a family, the education system in the area is boosted by donations.
    - Opportunities to be a "hero", working long hours to make a deadline or finding a way to do something better on your own.

    Cons

    - Engineers are hired without proper screening to fill positions, and ensure customers are billed hours. Poor employees take years to be removed, if ever.
    - Employees benefits suffer, while earnings per share increase.
    - Work is largely redundant. Very few people will do anything cutting edge.
    - Communication and teamwork is largely extinct.
    - If you're young and single, you'll find the town lacking variety. Major cities are within driving distance for weekends.
    - Product cycle times are being scheduled shorter, but effort was not placed into making it possible with the same amount of man power first.
    - Many good engineers go into non-technical roles because it's their best place for advancement and pay increase. Draining knowledge and experience from the remaining pool.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Improve the hiring process to bring in quality engineers. Ensure poor performers find their way out.
    - Follow through on ideas. Back them till success or scrap them for something better.
