Can anybody confirm or deny this?
I used to be happy with my job and satisfied with the way my career was progressing but that is no longer true. This company has changed drastically in the last several years. It no longer matters how hard you work and what experience and knowledge... — read more
"...voluntary and involuntary separation plans for approximately 62 employees in our Kilkeel site." https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-northern-ireland-57119480
Based on how they treat their employees and run their facilities, especially from the Information Technology (Computer Support) side, I'd say that Micky D's would be more efficient with Aerospace production efforts then Collins is. I have a... — read more
Jump ship before she goes down by the bow. My advice? Get a job in the steel industry..

Our management never ceases to amaze me. When I think I’ve seen it all, they surprise me. Looks like it can always get worse. Lately, I have a feeling that this company would be better run by a business school student. If nothing else, he/she would... — read more
It doesn’t have to be a complete list, because I know it would be too long.
What I don't understand is why it takes so long for upper management to see what's going on. I mean we now have worse managers then in the past and they are allowed to prosper because they blame everyone else for the mistakes that are being made and... — read more
Before I came here I worked in two companies and neither of them had a problem with a toxic atmosphere like we do here. In fact, I think it’s getting worse and worse. Backstabbing has almost become something normal that I constantly encounter. .. — read more

Hearing of many to be let go in WLOX. This company is a sh–show and things are sinking fast. Mgmt trying to keep employees from spreading the wide felt sentiment that employees are miserable and overworked.
I was talking to a friend of mine at Corporate and he told me that the Help Desk phone lines are absolutely swamped. Computer problems aren't getting fixed in anything close to a timely manner because some nimrod high up in the Collins Desktop... — read more

Quite a few bit the dust today, we're estimating ~10% of engineering heads.

Is there going to be any reorg or Rockwell Collins Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
Wouldn’t it be nice if the company decided to treat us like the adults that we are and be completely transparent in regards to layoffs? They don’t even have to say who is going to be laid off, but at least let us know in advance how many and what... — read more

Posts are being pulled off this website regarding the cause of plant shutdown a couple weeks ago. Not sure what policy is supposedly being violated
Collins is not actively laying off. That said, the future is still uncertain. As of now, the leaders are hoping for high attrition over the next quarter with no backfills. With merit for next year still questionable and more furloughs almost certain... — read more
