    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Innovation is the culture of Rockwell Collins. As a Co-Op I was still in college when I worked at Rockwell so when I started there I didn't think they would care what I had to say when it came to doing things as important as adjusting the manufacturing process. My bosses were always encouraging me to pursue my ideas even if I made a mistake. Great place to work.

    Cons

    The only thing I didn't like was the location. Cedar Rapids isn't the most exciting place in the world to live when you're a college kid. Don't get me wrong, there were tons of interns there and I made a lot of friends, it's just in the middle of Iowa and there isn't a ton going on. But it's 30 min away from Iowa City and if you're not from a big city like I am then Cedar Rapids is just fine. Personally I'm a big city guy.

    Advice to Management

    There managers were all extremely nice. They had no problem approving projects and never micromanaged. I would go weeks without talking to my manager outside of a meeting because they really trust their workers.
