I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good old boy network used to employ frieinds and family of employees

Cons

Be ready to be put down by the good old Iowa managers. As one director put it "unless you go to our school and are a family member you are nothing but cheap labor to us. No one else understands how Rc works" they lay people off on a 10 year cycle then use that as an excuse to buy and ruin other companies. Cedar Rapids is the only place things get done at.

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Integrity, Loyalty to employees (at least at a personal level), great community of excellent engineers, fun and challenging work, great customer focus.

    Cons

    Expensive High Deductible health care, Salary Compression after many years service, limited upward mobility unless in Cedar Rapids.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to give substantial raises (5-10%) every 4-5 years or you'll lose folks. 2.5% doesn't build loyalty.
