Land of the revolving door. It's great if you're the squeaky wheel, but that's just not for me.

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

Pros

Rockwell Collins has some great employees. A lot of people I've met there are good people with a great skillset for a medium-sized engineering company.

Cons

Management blows. Squeaky wheel gets the oil has never been more accurate than at Rockwell Colins. Rockwell Collins has had an issue keeping employees longer than 5 years, so they treat you like you're a temporary employee. I was bullied around and treated like junk by management. I was told promotions are like magic dust; it never happens. I can definitely confirm it. At Rockwell Collins, it's not if you're leaving for somewhere else, it's when you are leaving.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

An engineering VP once said complacency is when you're doing the same thing to expect different results. If you want to close the revolving door, you need to start thinking different to make yourself great. For me, Rockwell Collins didn't build my trust in them.
