    Former Employee - Junior Design Engineer in London, England

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The best parts about working there was the ethics policies that everyone happily integrated into working life making it a very comfortable place to work and learn. All teams were made of long standing employees of the company which gave the place a good friendly feel with a really good work output.

    Cons

    The salaries started really quite low and took a little bit too long to climb up to an appropriate level without having to go down the leading/management routes to achieve appropriate salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very little useful advice could be given... Perhaps a more accurate way of assessing keen talent/ skills and upping their salaries accordingly would be the icing on the cake in such a good workplace.

    Pros

    Not many. Its a job.

    Cons

    Too any "YES" people. No vision of the global situation, almost arrogant. They have had a big part of the aviation pie, and do not think they need to change to meet the current world situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen!!!! You are sticking to the Corporate line to rigidly.
