    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great intelligent people. I worked for a smaller BU with diverse products and projects to work on. Opportunity to work and various aspects of the products.

    Cons

    Too much processes which cause stagnate any innovation idea. Local management do not have discretionary funding for engineering to try new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do less counting numbers. Put investment in long term products that are less affected by the annual congressional budget.

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I made a couple of good friends and worked with a couple of people I liked and respected.

    Cons

    Poway management was horrific, didn't listen to employees when they voice issues with management, released employees under less than honest reasoning, upper management is narrow-minded. Started as a small company and maintained the clique mentality of "newcomers not welcome".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of most of your managers in Poway and get real ones...people that aren't engineers and have some people skills. Listen to what your staff is saying. Walk the walk and talk the talk. Show your staff you mean what you say and are really working to improve. Don't sit in your office with your door closed and expect things to change.

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins

    Pros

    Stability within the commercial and defense industry is a good thing for job security.

    Cons

    A lot of process and a lot of the career growth is found in Cedar Rapids. The office outside of the main HQ are lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your top performers better and stop trying to satisfy the status quo.
