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

Pros

Good technological place to work. Co-workers are professional. Lots of opportunities to move around.

Cons

Some positions require many hours continuously. You compete with the entire company at your grade level for compensation and advancement; if you're not careful, this can be bad due to limited opportunities to show skills, not necessarily due to lack of work ethic, motivation, etc.

Advice to Management

Don't pigeon-hole employees; keep them moving onward/upward if they want to advance.

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company is a leader in avionics. It has a wealth of knowledge as well as very capable engineers working here. The avionics are high quality and reliable.

    Cons

    Projects are poorly managed and bid. It would seem that when every project slips schedule and runs over budget that the bidding process needs revision. Poor planning becomes the burden of the employee.

    The review system is set up to be easy to rate employees down, not up. The common theme was a person's 'perception' rather than work output. You can see this radiating from upper management in the Melbourne location.

    ~3% raise is the norm.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on positive reinforcement of your employees rather than breathing down their neck asking daily when they will be done. A simple 'thank you,' or 'good job,' goes a long way toward not creating such a negative environment.

    Create realistic project deadlines and quit allowing scope creep every time a customer bats an eye.
