Great Avionics company

Principal Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Richardson, TX

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

ConsVery 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 Senior ManagementThis 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
