    Aviation Geeks' Dream Engineering Job

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Wilsonville, OR

    ProsFull of talented, passionate people. Lots of people have been there 10, 20+ years. I think everyone is there because they love what they do. A culture of excellence and improvement. Generous pay and benefits.

    ConsAs with any company in the aviation industry there is a lot of process. This is as it should be for the safety required. I'm rather type-A myself and don't mind it, but the amount of process is not for everyone.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent place to work

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Cedar Rapids, IA

    ProsRockwell Collins is a leader in avionics and is absolutely the place to be if you are interested in the field.

    ConsThe primary downsides of working for Rockwell Collins is the location and the plodding pace of the avionics industry.

    Happy at Rockwell Collins

    Principal Program Manager (Current Employee)
    Cedar Rapids, IA

    ProsGreat company to work for, ethical, honest, and stable. Multitudes of eciting and challenges roles in several fields. The balance between Government and Commercial markets continues to provide stability and opportunities for growth even in challenging economic times.

    ConsOccasionally viewed as overly conservative and engineering centric. Talent development and career advancement is a slow and measured process. Senior leadership is almost exclusively developed from within.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExpand focus on talent and leadership development with additional coaching, training, and career path mentoring.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
