I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I made a couple of good friends and worked with a couple of people I liked and respected.

Cons

Poway management was horrific, didn't listen to employees when they voice issues with management, released employees under less than honest reasoning, upper management is narrow-minded. Started as a small company and maintained the clique mentality of "newcomers not welcome".

Advice to Management

Get rid of most of your managers in Poway and get real ones...people that aren't engineers and have some people skills. Listen to what your staff is saying. Walk the walk and talk the talk. Show your staff you mean what you say and are really working to improve. Don't sit in your office with your door closed and expect things to change.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I was fooled by the best

    Cons

    The engineers that are hired at Rockwell Collins realize early that to get more money they must be in management - They never become good engineers - They are taught to be bullies.

    Those who can engineer do - those who can't - Manage

    I was a fool to have stayed here so long

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The great thing is that they do not micro manage you.

    Cons

    As an intern you are heavily underpaid and under appreciated for doing the same job as everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the hourly salary for an intern to compete with other firms and make more ways to appreciate your employees.
