    I worked at Rockwell Automation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Customers always came first. Team work mentality with other employees or departments was outstanding. Managers were flexible with personal or family appointments. Consistent training done on a continuous basis for upgrades or procedure changes. Managers highly knowledgeable in all aspects of their division.

    Cons

    International inter-company communications regarding direction/action were sometimes slow in urgent situations. Not always allowed extra vacation time off during Christmas and New Year when most other departments were always off. Of course it does depend on ones position though and what they do.

    I have been working at Rockwell Automation as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities, room to move around, competitive pay/benefits, knowledgeable HR, thorough coverage of future possibilities at Rockwell through Career Week

    Cons

    None that I've encountered (I know, shocking)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, the two training programs put in place by both managers that I've worked under are excellent

    I worked at Rockwell Automation as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great People
    Interested Management
    Opportunity to advance and be mentored

    Cons

    There is a rising culture of contracted work. The contractors are great capable people who are looking for opportunity and Rockwell exploits them in order to keep appearances of stability. After all laying off or getting rid of temp staff never looks as bad as having massive full time layoffs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to the workforce that is available and hire on contractors with great potential. Do not look over the gold that is in your yard for the change that is in anothers

    I have been working at Rockwell Automation

    Pros

    It's awesome and has lots of growth potential with in the field and is very competitive and successful in the industry.

    Cons

    May be too big for it's own good and sometimes it takes a while for the system to work, like with IT help for example, it might take a awile to find the right person to get the problem fixed.
