DAC Process Analyst (Current Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IADecember 5, 2017
Its a fine place to work with decent benefits. But, the opportunities for advancement are limited working for a big company. They also help pay tuition which is a great benefit.

A very unorganized company with poor management
Manufacturing Electrial Engineer (Former Employee) –  Decorah, IADecember 4, 2017
Most of the my days were dealing with issues that would come up in a production environment. A lot of the issues could be avoided if management would give engineering a direction. Most of the input engineering gave management was ignored or put off until management could claim the idea as its own. A lot of favoritism and retaliation is played in this company. An engineer on the manufacturing floor doesn't really do much engineering work it is more a clerical job. This company claims to be ethical but is just the opposite not a good place for an engineer looking to advance their career.

Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TexasDecember 2, 2017
Generally a good place to work. It's a very conservative, risk averse organization with a good culture overall. Rockwell Collins is a very ethical company.

unorganizied company
Manufacturing Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Lenexa, KSNovember 22, 2017
lack of leadership, lack of care for employees, no clear direction in daily goals. the tops get richer while the bottom doesnt advance. you come into work and there is no clear plan of the day. issues come up and nobody wants to take owner ship to solve the problem. they do not hire from within the company and constantly bring people in from the outside making former employee train the new ones. disgraceful.
Pros
none
Cons
short breaks, no incentives, very few company perks

Good if you are Full Time / Regular
Engineering Project Coordinator (Contractor) (Former Employee) –  Huntsville AlabamaNovember 15, 2017
The temps are treated like dirt. And every Engineering Program Assistant is a temp. Full time hire is not possible because of budgets and what not. The manager is the Engineering Division Manager. Guess who he always sided with in a dispute? Overall, it was not a great place to work.
Pros
I got paid
Cons
I received absoulely no benefits

Solder assembler (Former Employee) –  Melbourne, FLNovember 13, 2017
I enjoyed my job at Rockwell except the low pay. it was fast paced and challenging. They also made it competitive by putting goals in place for each area. sadly they don't pay for experience, everyone is entry level. The only negative I have to say is Very young engineers and management do not listen to experienced employees and treat them as if the are not smart enough to contribute on their level.

BUSINESS SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Pomona, CANovember 12, 2017
Analyzed and prepared budgets for airline programs and reviewed warranty data for service center repairs. Learned how the airline repair inflight entertainment system products worked. Management team very knowledgeable and supportive. The hardest part was recognizing business was consolidating and relocating. The enjoyable part was meeting goals and working with a different airline customers, United, Air France, Delta, etc.
Pros
Company always recognized employee rewards
Cons
Business consolidation of various departments

Fast Pace with ever evolving technologies
Software Engineering Lead (Contractor) (Current Employee) –  Carrollton, TXNovember 7, 2017
As a Software Engineer as well as Lab Administrator it was having to keep up with the ever demand that the coders would bring at you. Luckily they are great to get along with, especially during the heavy season of other leads deadlines approaching while needing to make sure your work is of the highest quality while not slacking in time. Fast pace but also cutting edge technologies that no one has ever seen in the nuclear physical security industry!

Lack of teamwork and poor management
Mechanical Designer (Former Employee) –  New Berlin, WINovember 7, 2017
A typical day includes jumping around from various products/issues depending on what is hottest and who is loudest.

The knowledge obtained is from years of sink or swim mentality from supervisors and managers. You become proficient in multiple functional areas including quality, manufacturing, engineering, project management, etc. This knowledge can not be taken away but was very painful to achieve. Better on the job training would be incredibly helpful.

Management is never around. Always in meetings.

Workplace culture is back stabbing and there is no such thing as teamwork.

The people you work with (your peers) are the most enjoyable aspect.
Pros

A/P Specialist (Current Employee) –  Wellington, FLNovember 6, 2017
Perhaps the best company for which I've ever worked. Work/Life balance is highly respected. Compensation is fair. Corporation goes out of its way to make it an enjoyable place to work, yet emphasizes productivity and ethics.

okay work place
Material Handler- Picking (Current Employee) –  10800 Pflumm Rd. Lenexa, KSNovember 3, 2017
Experienced discrimination, high turn over rate in the HR department, a lot of drama, lack of respect..... There is a lot of favorites being played throughout this facility, no matter how hard of a worker you are if your supervisor or manager doesn't care for you don't expect them to have your back if something like verbally assaulted happens to you, and if you go to HR don't expect to get any results the personal changes so much in that department its hard to keep up with whos in charge
