Current Employee - Principal Software Engineer in Richardson, TX

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

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 ManagementAdvice

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than 5 years

    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.
