    The vacation benefits were excellent. We got 10 hours of paid vacation per month, or three weeks per year. This was as a starting employee! In addition, the Aircraft group (where I worked) took off two weeks over Christmas, as a whole. The company used the time to reconfigure and repair equipment in the manufacturing plant, and the employees got a long holiday. Health insurance seems decent, and the 401k matching is very competitive. The company also organizes and sponsors events in the area, and Rockwell Collins employees can usually get discounted/free entry.

    Keep in mind this is current as of January 2018: Three weeks vacation straight off, increases to four after a LONG time, and then eventually to five. They match up to 5% of your salary if you contribute 8% to a 401k. Then there's an additional percent that happens automatically, regardless of if you contribute anything. The size of this automatic contribution, I think, is based on your job title/level. All of this goes into Rockwell Collins stock, and vests after three years (I think). Honestly this is my least favorite part of the benefits; I wish this were a higher match. Even 1% makes a difference. There's what they call "Incentive Pay" once a year, which is based on how the company does. It's a percentage of your salary (which increases based on your job title/level) multiplied by a factor between 0% and 200%, with a target of 100%. So if the company does "all right", you get the percentage of your salary times 100%, so just that percentage Health insurance is ok, it's high-deductible and they contribute money to an HSA for you to (sort of) compensate. I think if you're single it's a smaller contribution than if you're married and/or have kids. If you're a high performer you might occasionally get awarded Visa cards as micro-bonuses, up to $500 per award. There's standard stuff like Vision and Dental available, with some (potentially) interesting things like group legal insurance, critical injury insurance, and a Flexible Spending Account. The time off for maternity/paternity leave is nothing to write home about; I've heard several complaints. I don't know if it's paid or unpaid. Welcome to the USA, folks. We hear rumors of things changing with the (potential) UTC acquisition of our company coming up. Again, keep in mind this is current as of January 2018.

    Many benefits, especially relative to the amount interns at other companies receive.

    Rockwell is pretty competitive compared to whats available in the area. The Incentive Pay Plan is pretty nice however it was sold to the employees as a way to offset for less merit pay back in the early 2000s. Time will tell how the recent acquisition by UTC Aerosystems will affect us.

    9-80 Alternate Work Schedules (AWS) allows for better work-life balance. Other benefits competitive with other large defense companies.
