    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Rockwell Collins is a company with cool technology and they have a concerted effort to improve the IT tools to employees. The company has strong ethics and has pushed out even senior leaders who have integrity issues.

    Cons

    Rockwell Collins often gets caught up in the quarterly push for earnings and doesn't focus long term. They tend to be perfectionists by nature which often leads to a criticizing culture and reasons not to do things.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to looks for ways to be fresh, and empower the front line employees. You have brilliant people working for you - your role as a leader is to unleash that - not micromanage it.
