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

Pros

Health benefits with HMO is best in class. Coworkers are great people to work with. Interesting work with aviation products. Ability to move up through roles.

Cons

Becoming just another place to work for. No incentive to keep younger employees. Reducing 401k match and vacation accrual policy. Overall the company has had 5 layoffs in the last year.

Advice to Management

Your younger generation is leaving because they are not being paid what your competitors are. You are not showing them that you have a commitment to growing through your youth. What happens when all the 40_ year olds are laid off or retire?

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

    Pros

    Relaxed athmosphere, flexible schedule, easy to get to/from work. Cedar Rapids is a quiet place to live at. All in all a great company that I would reccomend to anyone

    Cons

    I really can not find anything to say negative about the company. To some the quite life in IOWA might be a negative side, btu to me it was OK.


  2. "Strong, balanced company with command / control style leadership."

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Rockwell Collins has long had a balanced business portfolio in both the commercial and government aviation industries. They have a well established brand, and are well known in industry. They have a global presence and supply some of the world's leading airlines and governments with aviation and navigation electronics, supplemented by training, service and repair facilities across the U.S. and approximately 20 other countries worldwide.

    Cons

    Internal politics are difficult to navigate. Employees have trouble seeing how they are part of the big picture, but want to make a positive impact on the company. Mid-tier leaders don't always provide clear direction especially in the shared service business units.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to empower employees by helping manage the internal politics that sometimes impeded real, sustainable change.
