    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  Hyderābād
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Hyderābād

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice Pay Scale for freshers comparable to other similar industries
    Nice recognition/appraisal/hike if your performing extremely well.

    Cons

    Not much challenging work, one would find himself/herself doing same work for years.
    HR and upper management decisions are pretty lame when it comes to appraisal, and promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should recognize the talents and retain those employees. IMHO, one doesn't simply leave an organization, poor management force them to leave.

    I worked at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good 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

    Cons

    your 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 ManagementAdvice

    Age 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.

    I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pays good.
    Accepts change (slow and steady)

    Cons

    Has 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 ManagementAdvice

    I 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.
