Good Pay, Good Work, Great learning , no work life balance and many dysfunctions in the teams

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Hyderābād

I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time for more than a year

ProsGood Pay, Good learning and get good work to apply what has been learnt.

ConsNo Work Life balance, HR doesn't have the minimum idea of employees needs. Managers are biased, have favouritism, Leads/ Manager behave like despotic. Higher management unable to fix the issues , though they get feed back from the employees. Growth is seen to the employees who are more close to the managers than the talented people. More importance to the people who are mediocre. This company is not the right place for people who are aspiring to grow in their career. HR restricts from applying to the internal job postings , which is biggest flaw. No retention policy, nor do they discuss, why are the resources leaving the organisation. No transparency. Nurtures the outdated talent, gives importance to the old without knowledge using a sentence "Experience". opportunity for old rather than the capable.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey have to control the attrition. If management thinks that they are not having a problem with the attrition, with continuous attrition, it becomes difficult for them deliver things on time. Think about the work life balance. The whole team becomes victim to the fancies of the Manager. wrong people and the right places are making the things worst.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Hyderābād

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

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
