I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (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.

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits: 401k match, vacation, winter shutdown between christmas and new years, excellent bonus structure.

    Cons

    A bigger company with some people that needed to be fired but just get shuffled around instead. Was expected to work more than 40 hours/week on a regular basis without overtime pay, although bonus checks were awarded in special cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the people you don't want instead of pawning them off on another group.

    Pros

    Good product. Good diversity. Good locations.

    Cons

    Communication between leaders and employee in some areas very good...in others..abysmal.
    Ideas of employees are squelched in the non-engineering areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the surveys hired done will not replace open communication. Building trust everyday must start with leaders and those in immediate line of supervision. Open communcation is championed, but does not happen in practice. There are reasons people are leaving the company. Find out. Mid level managers are pressured to make unrealistic numbers, and they don't credit the solutions to the people who really figure out the solutions.
