I worked at Rockwell Collins as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

As an intern, RC was very pro-active on getting me involved. By the time my 3 months with them was done, I was able to complete the same job as a man that had worked there for 5 years.

Cons

Since I am a business marketing major, there was no room for me with the company when my internship was completed. Not having an engineering background instantly weeded me out of the competition.

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

    Pros

    The company has a clear path for personal growth and skill set expansion. I'm lucky that I have competent managers that support me and the entire department.

    Cons

    As with any large company internal politics can be cumbersome to navigate. If you don't have your own manager backing you; as in any company you will be in serious trouble . Some of the most simple things can have silly policies or procedures. Working across department lines can be very difficult and time consuming. Your experience at this company will vary greatly depending on your leader.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the silos. Working across departments can be ridiculous. It would be nice to see more reviews for management performance. There seems to be more tools and process in place for mitigating bad performance than rewarding good behavior.

    Lots, but they don't listen so why bother.
