    For Freshers

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsGood place for freshers to start .
    No one knows what to do ? so freshers can experiment ?
    For long runners . Learn a piece of software and do that work for years to come . Aviation industry never changes.
    Testing heaven. keep clicking and test
    D0178B /C

    Consyour learnign curve will stop in 6 months . and keep doing the same work.
    No one cares of your opinion.(I think all the corporate works in that way)
    Management oriented ( Its more monitored)

    Advice to Senior ManagementAge old management techniques need to improve.
    This is for all the corporates . Take emplyee as an indicudual not as an number .
    Every individual has 3 categories The brahma (creators, design, coding ) the Vishnu (the preservor, mainteiners, legacy code ) the Shiva ( the destroyer, integrators, delivery ). Tey to find out each in the indivdual and find his interest in . Put him according to what he is comfortable.

    ProsDirectClient interaction (speific to my project, unsure about others)
    Flexible timings
    reasonably good salaries, decent benefits (medical LTA etc..,)

    Organization has great values, just that they are two generations old

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsPays good.
    Accepts change (slow and steady)

    ConsHas a long way to go to be a true Global organization. If you are working at Rockwell Collins India Design Center, be prepared to be treated like a contractor

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would say organization needs some new gen management. It has too many processes which sometimes are bottlenecks. Also, if managers learn to treat its manpower as "Engineers" rather than replaceable resources, it can get a lot good in return.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
