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

    Pros

    Great company. There are a lot of opportunity for advancement and different positions.

    Cons

    possible acquisition. There are a lot of synergies so there will be several positions eliminated with the possible acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Management is already doing a lot to grow the business. I do not have any advice to give to management at this time.

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

    Pros

    Casual work environment, friendly co-workers at seemingly every level of the company, relevant and challenging work.

    Cons

    The company is so casual that unless you are working on a government contract I feel like there is no oversight so I can't assess my own progress.

    Advice to Management

    I think Management know what they are doing more than me. The few pieces of advice I could give are long term project restructurings to reduce inefficiency. these things need to be done from a company and personnel stand point since these inefficiencies affect workers mostly, but there is no one solution for all management or all programs.

    Pros

    Great benefits and good pay

    Cons

    Their "pro-diversity" program is promoting lesser qualified people to lower and mid management positions. If you are a white, non-hispanic, male forget about job advancement.

    Advice to Management

    If you want minorities and women in management make sure that they exceed minimal qualifications

    Pros

    Great people to work with on a Team, Cadillac Benefits which are rare in the workplace today and great working conditions.

    Cons

    Onboarding process was tedious, takes about three weeks to get a notification if you are hired or not. Site was not ready, poor on the ground leadership from all levels. No idea on what is expected of you, you have to guess what your responsibilities are. Impossible to get anyone to do what is needed in a timely way, for instance if you have multiple chains of teams working together and lack of direct leadership of the overall project, this is a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Do not try and setup a site in less than a month which normally takes three to four months to complete.
