    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.
