Good company, good pay, long hours

GPT IT Team Member (Former Employee) Milwaukee, WI

ProsRockwell (formerly Allen Bradley) has been a foundation in Milwaukee for a long time. The pay is really good, depending on which project you are working on. It is close to downtown and there are great places to eat. There was no lack of work, so job security was not an issue. The cafeteria is pretty kick ass, too.

ConsManagement on the project I worked on over-committed a lot. We worked long hours, including weekends and holidays (though holiday work was compensated well). The building is NOT meant to be an office building. There are no windows anywhere, so at times you feel like you are in a prison. On the SAP project, the path for promotion is almost non-existent.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic in scope and commitment to timelines. Recognize the hard work of employees 100% more than you currently do.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
