    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Full 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.

    Cons

    As 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.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Occasionally 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 ManagementAdvice

    Expand focus on talent and leadership development with additional coaching, training, and career path mentoring.
