What is the retirement plan like at Rockwell Collins?

Pros

Good benefits: 3 weeks vacation to start, 5% 401k match, paid winter shutdown, flexible schedule (9-9's, flexible start times). Competitive pay. Good people to work with. Most projects are generally followed-through; funding is achievable (not open coffers, but not impossible).

Cons

Understaffed for workload. Opportunities for lateral moves but tough to get promotions. Aerospace / large company bureaucracy & regulations make change difficult. Nit-picky internal quality audits lead to extra tasks that add little value to organization. Too many policies and procedures - many are redundant yet sometimes conflict with each other.

Advice to Management

Drive suppliers to hold the same quality and delivery standards that we are held to. Prioritize and focus on the "real" projects that add value and customer is willing to pay for. Hire enough people to handle the workload. Simplify and standardize policies and procedures. Communicate to the employees what changes are coming from the UTC acquisition (transparency).

Good benefits: 3 weeks vacation to start, 5% 401k match, paid winter shutdown, flexible schedule (9-9's, flexible start times).
