Very conservative good old boys club

Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Cedar Rapids, IA

ProsGood honest hard working people
Good work ethics
Interesting projects
Fairly easy to move around between civilian and government jobs

ConsEmployees constantly fighting/competing with one another with management's blessings
Tribal knowledge everywhere impedes efficiency
Good old boys network very exclusive and proud of their 70hrs workweek and 7am meetings
Management/HR like to remind employees that Cedar Rapids is indeed a "one horse town", so it's "our way or the highway"
Between all the greybeards retiring and the major ongoing outsourcing of engineering jobs to India, Rockwell's presence in Cedar Rapids is fading away fast

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep praying competition doesn't setup shop in town

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
