    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Mayfield Heights, Cuyahoga, OH

    Pros

    Hands on coding opportunities. Completed ~3 major projects during my 7 month co-op. Learned new programming languages. Had a senior software engineer as a mentor. Many other co-ops to interact with both at work professionally and through extracurricular activities socially. Received a housing stipend. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. I always was treated as a regular employee and not just as some co-op. Awesome company.

    Cons

    Some things such as coordination between HR and financial department were confusing and non uniform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide co-ops with subsidized housing.

    Pros

    Great way to learn more how Rockwell Automation products are created.

    Cons

    As a contractor it is not a good place to work since we are only treated as an item, not a person who is eager to help the company. No interaction with the manager and feel like you don't belong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat contractors as being part of a team not just a thing. Acknowledge that they exist.

    Pros

    Rockwell Automation has a great culture. We have hard working employees that always serve the customer first. They are extremely flexible and have great opportunities for undergraduate students.

    Cons

    One of the draw backs of working at any large company is their lack of communication. It will take days sometimes for people to respond back to an email. Definitely make the phone call things get done a lot faster.

    Pros

    Big company with potential to develop the software solutions based on the accumulated experience in industrial control. Huge depository of the legacy code.
    The position is good for the full time if you already work for several years.

    Cons

    Unclear software design.
    "You do NOT want to know it" attitude.
    Huge corporate culture :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Asses the existed code and values.
    Create clear software design.
