    Pros

    Flexibility; 9/80 work schedule; winter shutdown; in charge of your own career; company is serious about leadership development, assessments of leaders every year; competitive pay; annual bonus potential; overall benefits are just above competitors with 3 weeks paid vacation to start!

    Cons

    Every company has it's downsides, but there is nothing really that is worthy to report. At least Rockwell Collins recognizes its shortcomings and does what they can to rectify them

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, good people. My co-workers were always willing to help out. They have some company sponsored events throughout the year that help break up the normal day to day routine.
    Lots of analysis tools and side rooms where you can dock your computer and focus on your project. Flexible hours too - lots of people showed up at 9am or other more unusual hours than the standard 8-5.

    Overall it is a good place to work , but your manager will dictate how enjoyable the experience will be in the end.

    Cons

    Not a lot of direction on projects. Engineers shuffled around too much, which promotes chaos leading to lots of mistakes and long ramp up times. Project schedules are ridiculous, forcing the engineers to do a month's work in 2 weeks, while expecting high detail in the analysis and documentation. The PCB layout process takes too long because of the schematic / layout software incompatibilities. It isn't uncommon for engineers to have multiple projects going at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    More time to do projects, and less shuffling of engineers and people. This will promote better project flow with less problems.
