    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This company is a leader in avionics. It has a wealth of knowledge as well as very capable engineers working here. The avionics are high quality and reliable.

    Cons

    Projects are poorly managed and bid. It would seem that when every project slips schedule and runs over budget that the bidding process needs revision. Poor planning becomes the burden of the employee.

    The review system is set up to be easy to rate employees down, not up. The common theme was a person's 'perception' rather than work output. You can see this radiating from upper management in the Melbourne location.

    ~3% raise is the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on positive reinforcement of your employees rather than breathing down their neck asking daily when they will be done. A simple 'thank you,' or 'good job,' goes a long way toward not creating such a negative environment.

    Create realistic project deadlines and quit allowing scope creep every time a customer bats an eye.

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

    Pros

    Leading edge type of work

    Cons

    Too many people have input on a projects which only adds time on getting something done. Do not like the fact that they are sending work for the US government over to India to be done VS having it done here in the US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1st line management will not tell upper management want really happens with getting product out the door. For one thing it has to go through more people than it really should which dives up cost. Cost saving would be to give people more leeway and be more responsible in their job.
