    I have been working at Rockwell Collins for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, the schools in the Cedar Rapids area are great, good benefits, an onsite recreation center, pharmacy and company owned day-care center.

    Cons

    Overworked due to always being short staffed, a few nice buildings but the majority are poor to fair, management states they want to practice lean, but don't seem to implement any lean suggestions from employees. Male employees are treated much better than female employees, in regards to pay and job advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The young people coming out of college today will not put up with what your 40 and 50 something employees have done. They expect more and will not stick around long if they don't get it. To keep the most talented young people you need to be more competitive.

    Pros

    Good technological place to work. Co-workers are professional. Lots of opportunities to move around.

    Cons

    Some positions require many hours continuously. You compete with the entire company at your grade level for compensation and advancement; if you're not careful, this can be bad due to limited opportunities to show skills, not necessarily due to lack of work ethic, motivation, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't pigeon-hole employees; keep them moving onward/upward if they want to advance.
