    Former Intern - Software Engineer II in Ottawa, ON

    I worked at Rockwell Collins as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to work in terms of work-life balance, no expectations of staying in the office past regular hours. Coworkers were friendly and helpful and took time out of their day to mentor me (an intern)

    Cons

    Working as a software engineer I felt like there was not a lot of focus on using better tools -- for example, most teams are still using CVS for source control
