Good company, needs to revisit complexity and usefulness of processes

Senior Systems Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFlexible work hours, good salary and benefits

ConsRigid processes that are often times overkill and don't add value to the end product. Development process not efficient, allowing teams to get new products to market faster

Pros: It is possible to learn quite a bit here and have the opportunity to work on some very special programs. When you do complete… Cons: This company suffers from making good and even great engineers into managers. As managers, they tend to be very poor and morale suffers accordingly.… Advice to Senior Management: Let great engineers be great engineers. Help them find a career path that lets them expand upon being great engineers. Hire good managers… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
