    Pros

    The people are amazing to work with and there are numerous opportunities here. Recently the company has made strides to improve engagement and infrastructure. In my experience work times have been flexible, which is a large perk for me personally.

    Cons

    We are a large company, so change takes time. Navigating the culture, language and multi-generational workforce can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the employees and break down barriers (both short & long term). Improve new leader tool kits, set them up for success before they take the role.

    Excellent CEO, making needed changes
    Opportunities to grow, but need to be proactive
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Expectation that employees/leaders must reside in Cedar Rapids
    Leadership team is not diverse
    Mid-level leaders are focused on themselves and not developing successful employees

    Advice to Management

    Embrace employees and leaders that do not look and act like the majority. Welcome new ideas and new ways to grow the business

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable work-life balance. My leaders have generally been very personable and supportive of my personal and career goals. Interesting work (if you love aviation).

    Cons

    Pay bands are very wide (could possibly be a good thing if you're looking for a title more than pay). Pay is generally on the low side for software engineer positions in the (Washington DC/Northern VA) area, but a little closer to average for the aerospace industry as a whole. During the recession, some people got promoted, but then the pay for their promotion was retracted along with all raises that year. I can understand not giving raises, but promoting without a pay increase for several years isn't fair.
