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

    Pros

    The people here are great, and are engaged in what they do, which makes work exciting and fun. Kelly Ortberg has injected some new life and positive direction into the company. Lastly, the company has taken positive steps that have improved employee's work/life balance.

    Cons

    Health benefits have steadily decreased. Pay is OK, but could be more competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to employee inputs to make positive changes at the company.

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Even though it's a large global company, the culture makes it feel like a smaller place that cares about each employee. They have onsite cafeterias, day care, gyms, and wellness programs. They encourage their employees to go for higher education and even have tuition assistance.

    Cons

    Overall the company vibe is great, but there are few departments or business units where morale is lower. If you're interested in working for Rockwell I would do your homework about where in the company you'll be working.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on your employees happiness and well being and you will retain your devoted and loyal workforce. I only left because I had to move out of state!

    Pros

    Easy commute and nice colleagues to work with

    Cons

    No respect from management. No leadership. Upper management incapable of making decisions in a timely fashion.

    Advice to Management

    Look closely at your new management team because they don't have the proper experience. The problem is that there is no respect for the mission critical facilities.
