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 ManagementAdvice

- 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.
