Okay Job
Aviation Service Center Technician (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAAugust 14, 2017
To each his own, seems like people only teach you their basic troubleshooting and keep their own troubleshooting know how to themselves for job security. I have more knowledge than my co worker and I produce more product but butt kissing gives him more edge.

I really enjoyed working for Rockwell Collins, I loved my over seas assignment, if an opportunity comes up in the future I would work for them again. A great company.

Sr. Systems Engineer
EICAS Subsystems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAAugust 9, 2017
Decent place to work. Just not that exciting or challenging most of the time. Systems testing on the Avionics Rigs was the most rewarding part of the job.
Pros
Free lunches on occasion, teamwork activities outside of work place.
Cons
Poor communication between management and employees.

Good Job, Hard Work
Industrial Engineering Co-op (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, IAAugust 1, 2017
Great place to work, has good pay and benefits, as well as career opportunities. I will say though that there was never a slow day at Rockwell. Every day was hard work, though not that that's necessarily a bad thing. It can be a burnout sometimes.
Pros
good pay, good experience, good benefits, good career opportunities
Cons
they sure make you work for it

Management creates a hostile work environment
Quality Assurance Technician (Former Employee) –  Wilsonville, ORJuly 29, 2017
Most people work as little as possible, while others take on the bulk of the work load. Management is terrible, they praise the slackers and abuse the hard workers. Mexicali is taking over the Wilsonville campus, trying to take as much work to Mexico as possible, wouldn't be surprised if the campus closes in the near future. Company tries to run every location like corporate (Cedar Rapids, IA), even though they all do different things. Knee jerk decisions without thinking about how it will effect both internal and external customers. Too many procedures, contradicting procedures. They hire people with no experience and pay them more than the employee who has been doing it for years. Not an equal opportunity employer. No raises, but acquired a company that had billions of dollars of debt!
Pros
Pto, paid holiday shut down
Cons
Management, high deductible healthcare

Genuinely promotes employee well-being
Principal Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAJuly 29, 2017
I have worked at Rockwell Collins since graduating from college. Throughout the past 10+ years, I've had the opportunity to try different positions in various parts of the company. Like any large company, working at Rockwell Collins could be intimidating at first. This wasn't only due to the size but also the naturally complex work and all the smart people there to do the complex work.

Over time, I've gained an appreciation for the work, the people, and how much the company takes pride and values its employees. Of course, there are certain times things happen you don't particularly like (delayed getting merit-based raises by 7 months) but overall, the company does commit and invest a lot of time, energy and money into the employees' well-being (benefits, tuition reimbursement, improving working environments and overall culture, etc.).

Sr. Service Center Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJuly 18, 2017
The environment there is very adult and work minded. At the same time they don't make it to stiff. There are a lot of great, fun people who work there and are focused on getting the company the best results.

Take a pass
administrative (Current Employee) –  Lenexa, KSJuly 14, 2017
This company will suck the life out of you and do everything they to make your life a living nightmare.

Upper management has no clue what they're doing. Changes are made and then they fail quickly and they're abandoned. The company is working in the dark ages as far as technology with paper files for every order and software created in 1989.

The worst thing is work/life balance. There isn't any. You're expected to put in 10 hour days and work Saturdays and holidays. The volume of work is tremendous for some departments while others sit around and do the minimum.

The offer paid time off but you can't really use it because you're buried in work and there's not enough people to cover for you to take time off and not come back to a mountain of work. Health insurance has a very high deductible - don't get sick, you'll go broke.

The only good thing is the people that work there. Everyone is very friendly.
Pros
The only good thing is the people that work there. Everyone is very friendly.
Cons
too many to list - poor upper management, no work/life balance, lousy benefits

Analyst (Current Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAJuly 5, 2017
Workplace culture has changed a lot over the years with a more relaxed and flexible feel. However, this also depends on what group you work in and your boss' take on those views.

Great place to work!
Sr. Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAJune 25, 2017
Rockwell Collins is a great place to work. Considering the flexibility, compensation, and benefits, Rockwell Collins is very competitive. The management is supportive and open to suggestions. Very receptive to hearing and guiding employees in achieving their career goals. It is not easy to 'get in', but it is absolutely wonderful if you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work for this wonderful global company!
Pros
Flexibility, compensation, benefits, opportunities

Good Company with good people but a little bland
Systems Engineer Co-op (Current Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAJune 24, 2017
Great place to work with and further your career. The only downside that I could point out is that it isn't the most fun place to work at. Most people I know come in and try to put in their 8 hours for the day and clock out. Nothing wrong with that, but they just come in to work and not get to know each other. There are those few exceptions, but not too many. Overall good company but the company culture could improve a bit.
Pros
Good 401k plan, dining centers
Cons
Company doesn't pay for coffee
