    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.

    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 a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 Nurtures the outdated talent, gives importance to the old without knowledge using a sentence "Experience".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 ManagementAdvice

    They 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.
