    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    ‘Collins’ name recognition on a young engineer’s résumé. If you get a good manager and you’re fresh out of college, you might have a good experience. (But even if you’re one of the lucky ones, you won’t have to look too far to see the mistreatment of fellow coworkers.)

    Cons

    Nepotism, favoritism, few good managers, monoculture, unprofessional leadership, and mismanagement resulting in several acquisitions.
