Pros
Cons
  • Have to be ok living in Cedar Rapids (in 125 reviews)

  • I'd rather be an intern than full time as there doesn't seem to be much of a work/life balance once you're hired full time (in 23 reviews)

    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.

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance through 9/80 program. Interesting development programs at major OEMs. An impressive tenure track if you're not interested in going into management. Good pay scales and vacation policy.

    Progressive, forward thinking management team.

    Cons

    Medical insurance deductibles are high. Still a few tyrannical managers hanging around that just drive people away. I'm a little concerned about recent acquisitions
