Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Quiet safe area for raising children.

Cons

Not much opportunity for job growth. Older management has not concept of work life balance. Excessive bureaucracy, red tape, and an engineering process almost completely delegated to engineering groups from finance.

Advice to Management

Make a concerted effort to streamline processes. Allow use of modern software engineering processes. Don't force engineers back into the same role for project after project. This leaves them with a lot of resentment and feeling that they are trapped with no way out.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    High concentration of Industry experts and really smart engineers.
    Great place for challenging design work - some really interesting technology and product development that makes a difference.
    Opportunity to work with customers (and travel) internationally.

    Cons

    I commute 30min so I can live in Iowa City for culture.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with adjusting the overall benefits package. This place relies on attracting top junior engineers. I'm an outlier - most of the technical and business leadership started here in engineering.
