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

Pros

Good place to gain experience and prepare for a career elsewhere. Most young and talented people are using this as a stepping stone. Most leave within 3 to 5 years. Blame it on the weather? ;)

Cons

good benefits, excellent balance between life and work, time for everything

Advice to Management

do not wait for promotion, get yourself one by finding another job, or switching job titles within the company. It is easier, faster, and above all more profitable to transfer to different job title than to gain Sr. title.

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Full of talented, passionate people. Lots of people have been there 10, 20+ years. I think everyone is there because they love what they do. A culture of excellence and improvement. Generous pay and benefits.

    Cons

    As with any company in the aviation industry there is a lot of process. This is as it should be for the safety required. I'm rather type-A myself and don't mind it, but the amount of process is not for everyone.
