PROCUREMENT AGENT (Current Employee) – Sterling, VA – 13 October 2015
I would say my company is a great place to work and the environment warm and friendly. I truly enjoy working with my coworkers, they keep me calm when demands can be overwhelming. My day change from day to day.. depending on the needs of each program.
Focused on keeping first pass fill rate in the high ninetieth percentile while at the same time trying to reduce unwanted inventory dollars. Coordinated with buyer and production control to manage material flow in accordance with production and customer needs. Also to determine resources necessary to meet production schedules, determine progress of work, and completion dates. Worked with customers POC in regards to production schedule and meeting commitment dates.
Sr. Technical Writer (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – 16 November 2016
Typical days are fast paced with demanding schedules. Little to no tool training create employee hardship. Employees are highly skilled, personable, and embrace teamwork. Site managers refusal to communicate honest forecasts and continued blame of upper management created atmosphere of gross mistrust of job security. Enjoyed accountability without micromanagement.
Pleasant work environment
Deceptive "building trust everyday" slogan does not apply to employees
Sr. Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) – Wilsonville, OR – 5 December 2016
Great products and good employees and local management. Insane level of processes with a lot of repetition and poor data management. Upper management is not very aware of what all needs to be fixed and when they do know the process to change the process is ridiculously long. I didn't see anything change the entire time I worked their.
Good hours, great coworkers and local management
Company leadership is very slow to get anything done.
Working at Rockwell Collins is a great place to work. This company offers comparable benefits and opportunity to advance within. Rockwell Collins has a very family like work environment. They are very involved with the community and do everything they can to help their employees be successful in their careers and personal life.
A solid company with excellent compensation and benefits
Program Manager, APQP Implementation (Current Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – 9 November 2016
Rockwell Collins is a very solid company that primarily does business in the aerospace and defense industry. The people that work there are top-notch, and the compensation is excellent, particularly in the geographic location of their home base.
Lab Security Advisor (Current Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – 12 August 2016
A typical day stats with emails, meetings, briefings, and training. I love the small team of coworkers , we get along and work together everyday. Hardest part of the job is making people understand it is not up to me on whether they can have new equipment or not. Most enjoyable part of my job is taking care of the lab and interacting with the engineers.
Purchasing Agent (Current Employee) – Wilsonville, OR – 18 October 2016
Rockwell has been a great company to work for with benefits that balance personal life and work life. There is a diverse culture here with people who have experience or knowledge in multiple areas and is utilized to everyone's advantage.
Alternate off Fridays, benefits, flexible hours for personal needs.
Sr. Electronics Tech III (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – 3 October 2016
Upper management has many people in the wrong positions. Your job title does not mean anything. Degree people is not recognized. They place the needs of personnel where areas our weak by helping in the progression for the next project scope.
Upper Management Power struggle, advancement opportunities
Some managers do not appreciate there employees. Some administrative assistants should be dedicated to there work area and no other area.
Sr. Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – 9 August 2016
Not much to say about this company. Not good! Some buildings have better people to work with than others. Women in upper management are always competing with the male managers. It's not a very fair company for people of color.
Decent company overall. Good ol boys club environment and work inefficiency gets old though
Electrical Enginner (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – 1 July 2016
Decent place to work. Work life balance is up to the individual. People there are generally pretty nice. Occasionally you run in the "big fish in a small pond" person which is common in cities in the Midwest. Advancement isn't always the greatest because of the Good ol Boys Club mentality there. Management can be overbearing at times. There seems to be many extra layers of management which can get pretty inefficient when trying to accomplish simple things. Pays well however you earned it by dealing with a lot of fluff which can be stressful at times. This type of environment is common amount places that have government involvement. Regulation, paperwork galore! Overall it's still a good place to work.
Working for this company is nice. There have cafeterias, events, socials, networks, and great expansion plans always in place. Not very many layoffs happen you are almost certain to stay here for 40 years.
Principal Account Manager (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – 5 September 2016
When I arrived at Rockwell Collins they had new management wanting new and fresh perspectives into it's sales force. For a company based in Cedar Rapids, IA, it was a moment open to attract not the best and brightest but talent which reflected its customer base. There was a big push on diversity and that is when I joined the company. It was a lot of fun to work the company in those days. As part of the national sales force we were hungry to take market share from our competitors. We stretched the boundaries of the company's decades old culture but sales and profits grew. Then they got a VP of Sales who reflected more the old culture and things changed. One by one guys like me left the company. I was one of the last of the group hired during the expansion period to go. Looking at the top leadership today it is reflected of those who grew up and advanced in their limited culture.
Assembly Operator (Former Employee) – Manchester, IA – 23 October 2016
Good place to work but they layoff alot. Hard to get many years in, People are very easy to work with. Company has been around for many years and is very fare with employees, Yearly raises. Good 401k match program, Good work environment.
A typical day would include traveling around the state of Maryland to a new MVA location everyday. Although the work was tedious, it was extremely easy and it's a great temporary job if you're in need of some good money.
First Article Inspector- . Knowledge of AS9102 (Former Employee) – Melbourne, FL – 1 June 2016
Rockwell Collins is a company who strives for change and adaptation, which creates an environment of inclusion and the ability to feel like part of a team. The focus on diversity and bringing uniqueness to the group makes Rockwell stand above its competition as "the place to work!" I had only been there a few years and have found it welcoming and an inviting place where my ideas are heard.
Sr. Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – 5 October 2016
The company is good to start your career. The ethics in the company is great value. The management is usually very motivating and supporting for career growth. The compensation is not par to the market place.
