No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Cheap area to live, starting benefits are pretty good. Good learning experience.

Cons

Promotions and raises are based on popularity and putting out fires rather than avoiding fires and doing a good job.

Advice to Management

Less politics, develop a plan to get your employees involved rather than making them worker bees.

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time

    Pros

    Low expectation of work you can sleep at work

    Cons

    Pros – Very conservative financially. The company does not take risks unnecessarily.
    Cons – Management and culture are a mirage. Management is horrible. The answer to every bad plan is to ask people to work overtime. The culture is extermely politically oriented. There are a lot of marketing campaings to make employees believe things are great, but the sad reality is that there is a culture of fear everywhere you look. Many people have just given up. I would not be surprised if this company took a turn for the worse soon because management has surrounded itself with people who say yes wihtout questioning, and engineering has learned to hide the problems until they move on to another position.
