Very top down driven management style, few opportunities for advancement
Manager Programs (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IAOctober 8, 2018
Rockwell Collins use to be a very good place to work until they started focusing on positioning the company for a sale. It turn into a company that cut costs at the expense of the employees. It was great if you were a stock holder. Maybe this will change now that UTC owns them.
Pros
Good pay and bonus structure
Cons
Little opportunity for career advancement.

Not a bad place to work
Department of Defense Risk Mitigation Specialist (Former Employee) –  Sterling, VAOctober 5, 2018
Typical, but depending on your role it could have been a great place to work or a really bad place to work. I only worked there for a short time and was part of a acquisition so it may be different for some people.

Upper Management treat their employees like disposable
Senior level Engineer (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CaliforniaSeptember 30, 2018
Unless you want to get layoff in the most humiliate way possible, steer clear from this company. The upper management doesn't care about you. They only care about their own well being and you are nothing but a disposable tool to them.

After years of dedicated work; With you and your colleagues work hard to make a product successful, they will move it back to the headquarter and leave you in the dust. Do not think about staying here for long terms. Take your experience and grow your career somewhere else.
Pros
decent benefits, people are nice overall, hard working colleagues
Cons
No stability, Upper management are slim balls

Good pay, weak culture and core values

This place is everyone for them selves. Leadership is weak and there is a lot of back stabbing. Things get done but not always right and most tends to look the other way.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Medical benefits, leadership, and more.

Nobody Talks here
Quality Control Inspector (Current Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCSeptember 26, 2018
No communication, at this company at all. Nobody talks to anybody, emails only to a few and only a few know whats going on. Mangers are stupid, and peddy, and have no experience but here. Engineering runs everything here, but they dont do a good job, everything is last minute.
Pros
a job
Cons
no advancement, no commuication, Engineers running the place

Rockwell Collins is a top-notch company that treats their employees well and had great compensation.
CHEMIST (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IASeptember 24, 2018
Rockwell-Collins is a wonderful place to work. I am happy to have had the opportunity to be an employee there and would not hesitate to go back.

The workplace culture contains labor union employees and white collar workers. There can be friction there. There can also be a difference of opinions between white collar workers. But, provided they all behave like adults and are professional, things are easily worked out.

A typical work day for me contained routine analysis of samples collected and the recording of data in a data base along with projects brought in by engineers who needed help troubleshooting problems as well as incoming material analysis. So there was a good mix of routine and novel work, data input and report writing.
Pros
set policies and procedures in a professional environment with good compensation.
Cons
work schedule was not flexible, there was some friction between white collar and blue collar workers

Low integrity for a company that tries to say they "build trust every day"
Principal Engineering Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IASeptember 19, 2018
While Rockwell tries to emphasize "building trust every day" as their motto, it seems that's only because that's an area where they are so weak. I've found the integrity of the business development and ethics offices to be quite low.

Challenging but needs some turn over in leadership
Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IASeptember 17, 2018
It is hard to review Rockwell Collins right now as it goes through it's impending purchase by UTC and becoming the new Collins Aerospace. The company will have to discover what is means to be Collins Aerospace and how to compete in a much broader marketplace.
Cons
Reduction in benefits over the last few years

Everyone is very nice, but don't expect anything state of the art
Software Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IASeptember 11, 2018
Everyone was incredibly kind and helpful, but the company moves slowly, as you'd expect from such a big company and an aircraft company at that. Everything had the feeling of a software product from 5-10 years ago, and personally that didn't excite me. If you are someone who wants to be able to go into work everyday, work on things that will be on airplanes, but not to have to work too hard, then this is the place for you

Decent place to work, but doesn't reinvest in personell
Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CASeptember 4, 2018
Rockwell Collins provides a significant amount of autonomy. As one would expect Rockwell Collins places a considerable amount of focus on getting the job done with the resources at hand, however the exact method of which that occurs is up to the individual contributor.

There is a considerable amount of learning opportunities at Rockwell Collins, however it is nearly all on the job training. Very little re-investment into the employees occurs and the company prefers to fill positions with outside talent rather than internally.

Good Place to Work
Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IASeptember 1, 2018
I worked on a very small team with a very focused project. From what I hear, I did not have a typical experience, but I enjoyed mine very much. My coworkers were nice and I never felt too pressured to overwork. Hours are flexible. You can typically come in and work whenever you choose as long as you attend meetings.

An once great aerospace company
former systems engineer (Former Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IowaAugust 29, 2018
Strange and ineffective middle management made up of mostly clique-ish Gen-Y and Millennials. More meetings than you can count, managers who don't LEAD but whose only job seems to be to take metrics on artificial milestones resulting in micro-management. And did I mention ageism? Process and knowledge of fancy toolsets are more important than experience and knowledge of the company's main end products - the actual AVIONICS suite! A once traditionally-great avionics leader now a Silicon Valley-like software developer posing as an aerospace company.
Pros
Modern engineering facilities, good work/ life balance
Cons
Clique-ish, lower-than-average pay, middle management heavy, ageism
