Pros

Good place to gain experience and prepare for a career elsewhere. Most young and talented people are using this as a stepping stone. Most leave within 3 to 5 years. Blame it on the weather? ;)

Cons

good benefits, excellent balance between life and work, time for everything

Advice to Management

do not wait for promotion, get yourself one by finding another job, or switching job titles within the company. It is easier, faster, and above all more profitable to transfer to different job title than to gain Sr. title.

    Pros

    I made a couple of good friends and worked with a couple of people I liked and respected.

    Cons

    Poway management was horrific, didn't listen to employees when they voice issues with management, released employees under less than honest reasoning, upper management is narrow-minded. Started as a small company and maintained the clique mentality of "newcomers not welcome".

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of most of your managers in Poway and get real ones...people that aren't engineers and have some people skills. Listen to what your staff is saying. Walk the walk and talk the talk. Show your staff you mean what you say and are really working to improve. Don't sit in your office with your door closed and expect things to change.

    Pros

    I was fooled by the best

    Cons

    The engineers that are hired at Rockwell Collins realize early that to get more money they must be in management - They never become good engineers - They are taught to be bullies.

    Those who can engineer do - those who can't - Manage

    I was a fool to have stayed here so long
