    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong appreciation for workers as PEOPLE and not just numbers and means to attain sales goals. Hard work is awarded with team lunches, dinners, and socials (and sometimes a few bucks). Coworkers are generally very hardworking individuals who take great pride in their work and are dedicated to the people their products are meant to serve

    Cons

    Cedar Rapids is okay, but I personally don't want to raise a family there. As a young individual, I would recommend somewhere that has more going on, unless you like more of a country lifestyle! This company also has other locations, of course, so don't let this be a total deterrent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Your workers love the time you put into developing them as professionals.

    Pros

    Everyone is very inclusive here!

    Cons

    You are sitting for most of the day; however, they have many fun activities to do with your team and other employees after work.

    Pros

    People, all amazing to work with with the normal exceptions in a corporate culture.

    Cons

    Conservative, very conservative management style. If you are not an engineer think twice about Rockwell Collins, unless your dream place is to stay in Cedar Rapids. No fair opportunities for advancement...you think differently and is your death sentence. Want to advance your career? Then you must be invited to join their "leadership club". Don't believe me? Ask anyone in operations. Best of luck....you will need it.

    Advice to Management

    You have managers in leadership positions. Not the same thing.

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Opportunity to meet a lot of skilled professionals
    Opportunity to work as an individual and as part of a team
    Opportunity to learn a lot of current technology and apply it to your job

    Cons

    Like anywhere, your manager makes or breaks your experience -- can be very good or very frustrating.
    HR is really not an advocate for the employee -- they support management in almost every circumstance
    Very large corporation -- close to 20K employees worldwide/7-8000 in Cedar Rapids
    There is a lot to learn when you onboard -- you have to learn the job and learn the corporate culture at the same time -- like drinking from a fire hose. Overwhelming at times.
