    Pros

    Interesting technology
    Flex time allowed
    Wages are OK

    Cons

    Product lines are not expanding. New ideas are put on hold to cut department budgets.
    Lack of vision from Leadership on the importance of marketing, and how to market.
    Too much focus on the Wall Street numbers, and investor numbers. Creating over-reaction.
    Talented co-workers are let go, keeping less qualified employees, creating a huge loss in our processes, and overall production.
    Directors focus on the concept of "Lean", and micro managing ever detail of a process, losing sight of promoting creativity and ideas.
    Dysfunctional Leadership incapable of true honest positive communication, and direction.
    Too much corporate politics, keeps ideas from flowing freely.
    Leadership shares it's political viewpoints in mass company emails. Timed perfectly around election time.

    Advice to Management

    Please own up to the programs Rockwell has lost as a major reason for the layoffs, and stop blaming it on the current administration, and "Sequestration" which hasn't even happened yet. I will bet the 1200+ will be laid off even if the "Sequestration" is stopped. Rockwell needs to look at the culture of "NO" we present daily, and stop the micro managing, looking for every little mistake, it is costing you the business.

    Pros

    Most people wanted to change things to make them better. People were usually willing to listen and respond to what you were asking.

    Cons

    - Lots of decisions based upon the anecdotal memory of management. Little effort to maintain relevant data and base decisions upon the facts.
    - Many times when a problem surfaced the engineers would respond with "we've known about this for at least a year."
