Too Many Lazy Employees
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Sterling, VAFebruary 19, 2019
Management has been working together for years and they are just there to collect a check. No training and if you are a minority don't waste your time applying, experience and education go out the door when applying for internal positions.
Pros
none
Cons
Too Many to list

They have room for improvement
Logistics Technician (Current Employee) –  Fairfield, CAFebruary 18, 2019
The system is broken. Management is poor and production people get worked like slaves. People come and go and leave without leaving their knowledge behind.

Potential to grow will need to know some one up there
Sr. Inspector (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZFebruary 8, 2019
Work for 14 yrs as Sr. QA got a little over twenty bucks.
All about favoritism. if your boss like you: All your escaped to customers will be forgiven, erased all your mistakes if u got some and even got good annual review and rate. You're control your future..

If His/ Her not like you...You in huge dip...don't care what your Job's knowledge are or education you got.
Be-careful because u will be on front line.
Pros
Good Corporate but Plan site will be in question
Cons
Local Management.

Great Place to Start Out
Senior Buyer (Current Employee) –  Troy, OHFebruary 6, 2019
Collins Aerospace is a great place to start out, but not necessarily to stay. They offer competitive benefits and a great flex program for students, parents, or those with other needs. Collins Aerospace has many challenges, which provides opportunities for growth and career enhancing experiences. Lack of effective leadership and accountability significantly impacts the morale. The company values are loosely supported, also impacting morale.

Run run run
Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Lake Suzy, FLFebruary 4, 2019
Do not work for this company. I worked for them in the very beginning before all the mergers, 7+ years. They treat you like a slave, it’s a glorified sweat shop. Management is all nice to your face, but will stab you in the back the second you leave the room. They don’t listen to any ideas you have, and even if they do they steal it if it’s good and don’t give you any gratification. Everything is all about metrics and they don’t even stand behind them or use them.
Pros
Amount of vacation, sick, personal, dependent time
Cons
Everything else

Great place to work and be challenged
Senior Field Technician (Current Employee) –  Livermore, CAFebruary 2, 2019
Great place to work and be challenged, work is light paced and requires a lot of thinking and trouble shooting.a good technician can resolve any problem and think it through from beginning to end. this is a skill that has to be acquired over time, the job is very technical but not very difficult once you understand the work.
Pros
enjoyable job
Cons
I would prefer to be compensated more to meet the cost of living standards in my area.

Great pay and benefits
QE (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJanuary 29, 2019
On the surface the company looks le a great place. Once established in the ranks, it's apparent that the only focus is dollars. The constant spiral of continuous improvement is merely for show. Management doesn't support quality initiatives. Metrics are ignored and the only thing they show is a lack of action from leadership/ management. Management will flat out tell you they don't have time to train up employees. Individuals have been let go for fraudulent maintenance encouraged by their leadership who is still present. Absolutely no accountability. People constantly overstep their roles and responsibilities in order to support numbers and will disregard established processes and procedures making it more difficult in those areas where lines have been crossed. This degrades the morale of the employees and creates a constant battle for those who are truly passionate and engaged. Leadership goes so far as to take customer goods and transport them in their personal vehicles, violating too many requirements to count, just for numbers. The manuals/ procedures are ignored even after leadership approval. The current QM has started multiple times that he cannot wait for his 12 months to be up so he isn't required to lay back relocation costs. The previous QM to that created a toxic relationship between Ops and Quality, pulling wool over everyone's eyes until finally let go. It's a shame they don't embrace the excellent employees they do have and merely look to just stay afloat to get by. This place is all show and no action. This is very well known amongst the rank and file  more... within the site who all feel undervalued. Communication from management is terrible and often the highlight of employee surveys with no resolution. HR does not like conflict but loves hosting lunches! They have no ability to take advantage of the golden nuggets if information they often speak of. Can't even successfully close their own internal audit findings without WWIII happening. Numbers numbers numbers, which would improve if they walked the talk.
Proceed with caution.

The people are great but top management can come across as insensitive and no willingness towards change.
Materials and Planning Analyst (Former Employee) –  Chula Vista, CAJanuary 16, 2019
My typical days at work were filled with analytical reports
I learned that you really needed to have connections to move up within the company
management was known to give false promises
the hardest part of the job was getting others to accept change
the most enjoyable part were the people i got to work along-side each day

Planner (Current Employee) –  Burnsville, MNJanuary 13, 2019
The people are great and the company could be too if only it could agree on a singular path forward where all the departments worked towards the same focus. Currently the departments all fight against each other to meet their own metrics which may or may not work with each other and the customer's needs.
Pros
Good people to work with
Cons
Poor culture - there is a lack of interdepartmental focus on the same goals

Expected overtime (with no compensation), but solid pay/security
Senior Structural Certification Engineer (Former Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCJanuary 12, 2019
I found the work/life balance to be a little more tilted to the work side than I liked. Stressful work environment with too much to do in too little time. It's not all bad - if you can get past the sheer amount of work thrown at you, the company has solid pay for the area, good job security, and some good people working for it.
