Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good co-workers and winter shutdown. Probably a good place if you're fresh out of college.

Cons

Too much responsibility given to offshore contract workers (not qualified for majority of the tasks).

Below average pay.

Promotions based on seniority rather than skill/knowledge.

Long hours due to poor analysis/requirements and overly optimistic scheduling.

Some co-workers are unprofessional. They will claim completion on incomplete tasks (to fulfill a goal for their annual review), and end up passing the buck to another employee.

Advice to Management

If you want to use contract workers, hire local US employees. Don't allow unqualified engineers to continually write confusing non extendable software.

Stop believing that any engineer can accomplish any task. Instead, assign engineers to tasks that fit their strengths.
