I have been working at Rockwell Collins (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great people, the schools in the Cedar Rapids area are great, good benefits, an onsite recreation center, pharmacy and company owned day-care center.

Cons

Overworked due to always being short staffed, a few nice buildings but the majority are poor to fair, management states they want to practice lean, but don't seem to implement any lean suggestions from employees. Male employees are treated much better than female employees, in regards to pay and job advancement.

Advice to Management

The young people coming out of college today will not put up with what your 40 and 50 something employees have done. They expect more and will not stick around long if they don't get it. To keep the most talented young people you need to be more competitive.

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

    Pros

    Sometimes you get to do real engineering. Great location in Cedar Rapids for raising a family.

    Cons

    Very slow to adapt new technology. Very risk adverse due to the nature of the business but not fun for new college grads as it will bring them back a dozen years or so in technology. Not really Rockwell's fault but more the FAA and the avionics biz

    Advice to Management

    This used to be an engineering company and now it's ran by PMs. Only PMs get promoted and there is very limited growth for engineers unless you move into management. No real "chief" engineers and no Fellow program.

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Access to a diverse set of programs and technologies, and normally a very good environment where you are treated as a professional and allowed a flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Jumping through hoops to get funding for new ideas, and sometimes a slow cycle of new developments.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be so risk averse in decision making.
