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

    Pros

    Good product. Good diversity. Good locations.

    Cons

    Communication between leaders and employee in some areas very good...in others..abysmal.
    Ideas of employees are squelched in the non-engineering areas.

    Advice to Management

    All the surveys hired done will not replace open communication. Building trust everyday must start with leaders and those in immediate line of supervision. Open communcation is championed, but does not happen in practice. There are reasons people are leaving the company. Find out. Mid level managers are pressured to make unrealistic numbers, and they don't credit the solutions to the people who really figure out the solutions.

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits: 401k match, vacation, winter shutdown between christmas and new years, excellent bonus structure.

    Cons

    A bigger company with some people that needed to be fired but just get shuffled around instead. Was expected to work more than 40 hours/week on a regular basis without overtime pay, although bonus checks were awarded in special cases.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the people you don't want instead of pawning them off on another group.
