Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Leading edge type of work

Cons

Too many people have input on a projects which only adds time on getting something done. Do not like the fact that they are sending work for the US government over to India to be done VS having it done here in the US.

Advice to Management

1st line management will not tell upper management want really happens with getting product out the door. For one thing it has to go through more people than it really should which dives up cost. Cost saving would be to give people more leeway and be more responsible in their job.

    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.
