Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Good old boy network used to employ frieinds and family of employees

Cons

Be ready to be put down by the good old Iowa managers. As one director put it "unless you go to our school and are a family member you are nothing but cheap labor to us. No one else understands how Rc works" they lay people off on a 10 year cycle then use that as an excuse to buy and ruin other companies. Cedar Rapids is the only place things get done at.

Advice to Management

No advice they won't listen
