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

Pros

The people who work here seem to be some of the best and brightest in the industry. While there are the people who seem to now know how to tie their own shoes they are easy enough to avoid. I have really enjoyed being able to learn from some very brilliant minds.

Cons

The defense industry is a difficult industry at this time specifically working on government contracts. Rockwell has taken alot of measures to counteract this however the situation has injected alot of unknowns into the work place.

Advice to Management

Spend more time fighting for your engineering staff and working towards growing them. There will soon be a knowledge and skill gap that some very talented engineers can grow to fill with the right mentoring.

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

    Pros

    I love what I do and the people I work with everyday. Great work/life balance and excellent leadership support

    Cons

    Compensation tends to drag behind the competitive average and promotions are slow unless you fight HR every step.

    Advice to Management

    Over-communicate your view of the future of the company. Many engineers struggle with the direction of the company and their place in that future.
