Pros – Rockwell is a sound, stable, professional environment that tends to be conservative. They are open to young/new as well as experienced talent. They have a pretty decent overall package and are focused on getting the job done well & safely, with integrity.
Cons – If you have proactive suggestions, their typically is little room for creative ideas, even though saying they're open. They want to save $$ but are not open to truly objective cost cutting measures administratively.
Advice to Senior Management – If you want to truly cut cost, please look at some of your processes in place. A simple example is your "required" rental car/hotel pick policy for employees that travel. It happens to be some of the absolute most expensive choices out there. In several arenas, you get by quite nicely with a relook.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Rockwell Automation full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – There seems to be good investment in graduate programs and development.
Good opportunities for those seeking a career in project management. Rapid career development for high achievers.
Good travel opportunities.
Cons – Company policies and business strategies are geared around hardware and product sales. There seems to be little interest from upper management with regards to providing solutions.
Very poor customer service. There is a attitude of just putting any body on the job rather than selecting competent resources with the relevant skill sets.
Decision making is carried out by HR and Sales, management is often bypassed.
There is little encouragement and no defined path for those seeking a technical career. Hierarchy is such that only management is recognized.
There is a reluctance to hire qualified experienced engineers. Growth strategy based around hiring non-technical managers and graduates.
Benefits could be better matched to other major industry players.
Advice to Senior Management – Engineers should be the backbone of the solutions business... Invest in them.
Appoint the correct management and leadership at a business function / group level and empower them to make decisions.

Pros – Conservative, solid, technically & ethically sound.
Cons – Struggling to overcome outdatedness issues. Doesn't take care of people long-term at all. Doesn't believe in progressive training in-house for newly acquired companies.
Advice to Senior Management – Could really use being more open minded & thinking outside of the box, especially about training for it's people. Very low appreciation for Emotional Intelligence!

I have been working at Rockwell Automation
Pros – Very conservative comany with lots of smart people that don't have much common sense
Cons – If your company is bought by RA you are considered an unwanted step-child. You must adapt to their culture or you won't survive.
Advice to Senior Management – The reason a company is sucessful is because their people work together to create a culture that makes working there a pleasure not a job. Forcing change via a sledge hammer instead of allowing what worked before you owned them is key to have a diverse company.
