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 5 years)

    Pros

    I generally work with good people. It's a Union environment so our pay raises are fair and built into our contract. The benefits and paid time off are amazing! You'll seriously never find the amount of time off they give us anywhere else.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. The job is a little tedious at times. While having a Union is great, it makes getting a promotion impossible (because it goes by seniority rather than work ethic / performance). It also makes it hard for them to fire terrible employees who would never make it outside of a Union environment.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to make good employees feel appreciated and not like they're being taken advantage of when they go above and beyond.

    Advice to Management

    Management has been top notch,but they need to work on the commication between the employee's and the management could be a little bit clearer.
