    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time

    Pros

    Flex schedule. Holiday stand down. Great management team. Friendly coworkers. Plenty available overtime.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities to learn multiple equipment. Can get boring on the bench.

    Advice to Management

    Allow technicians to rotate equipment. It gets pretty stale once you're good at it.

    I worked at Rockwell Collins (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Clear processes and hierarchy. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Rockwell is a program management company driven by detailed and sometimes overly long winded decision processes. They are driven by wall street and make very rational and unromantic decisions (lack of passion fro what they do), most of the time executed in a very insensitive way.

    Pros

    Coworkers are the best thing about working at the Tucson facility. Lack of management direction made working manageable. The product is out of the world

    Cons

    Political scene within Sr management makes working tenuous to say the least. Constantly looking over your shoulder and having your head on a swivel made things difficult.
