Pros

Sometimes you get to do real engineering. Great location in Cedar Rapids for raising a family.

Cons

Very slow to adapt new technology. Very risk adverse due to the nature of the business but not fun for new college grads as it will bring them back a dozen years or so in technology. Not really Rockwell's fault but more the FAA and the avionics biz

Advice to Management

This used to be an engineering company and now it's ran by PMs. Only PMs get promoted and there is very limited growth for engineers unless you move into management. No real "chief" engineers and no Fellow program.

    Pros

    Diverse working environment, fair benefits offered, and multiple abilities for advancement if an engineer.

    Cons

    Slow in terms of pay raises, if you're in certain fields or branches you will have a hard time advancing.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at talent retention, refocus attention on customer satisfaction than overall revenue.

    Pros

    I honestly cannot find any reason to work for Rockwell Collins.

    Cons

    Managers were not compassionate, nor were they consistent. Some of the managers are often two-faced and have very little experience or inclination to work with their employees. For months you will be praised, and then for no apparent reason, you are criticized. This often occurs when you have your annual meetings for raises, etc, or when you are being laid off.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to value their employees more. They are the bedrock upon where their own jobs lay.
