Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Cedar Rapids, IA
Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Cedar Rapids, IA
Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Good honest hard working people
Good work ethics
Interesting projects
Fairly easy to move around between civilian and government jobs

Cons

Employees constantly fighting/competing with one another with management's blessings
Tribal knowledge everywhere impedes efficiency
Good old boys network very exclusive and proud of their 70hrs workweek and 7am meetings
Management/HR like to remind employees that Cedar Rapids is indeed a "one horse town", so it's "our way or the highway"
Between all the greybeards retiring and the major ongoing outsourcing of engineering jobs to India, Rockwell's presence in Cedar Rapids is fading away fast

Advice to Management

Keep praying competition doesn't setup shop in town

    Companies policy for foreign nationals.
    -> Company will apply for H1B only before 3 to 4 months of the expiration of OPT extension.

    Advice to Management

    Change companies policies about foreign nationals and apply for Green card as soon as possible.
