    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work was pretty interesting. I enjoyed working on embedded systems and in the labs. In my group there was a fair amount of individual ownership of products which really keeps engineers engaged, I think. The other engineers were all friendly and helpful, fun to work with. There was a lot of interaction between electrical, software, and systems engineers which added another interesting dimension to the work.

    Cons

    Ethics went out the window when schedule was at risk. Program management had us just testing that a feature "existed" rather than that it actually worked in order to pass our requirements and deliver to customer. Lots of office politics and high stress due to recurring layoffs.

    Even within one group, higher up engineers would try to transfer a non-performing engineer to another "part of the project" (ie charge number) to make their charge number look better. This is problematic if the non-performing engineer is transferred to your charge number and drains it.

    When I interviewed and when I was given an offer, they told me "no set sick leave, you take whatever you need". However, when I arrived the management broke the news that this actually meant that you have to make up any hours that you're sick. So either you make up the hours, or you use your vacation time when you're sick. After I'd been there a while they changed this policy.
