    I have been working at Rockwell Automation as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Location, company size, opportunity to see many areas of business, and initial training program/corporate integration

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity for innovation, minimal responsibility for interns, and no opportunity to meet senior team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better way to utilize interns and teach them about being in a professional setting. That is why they take these types of roles.

    Experience was a good one. Coworkers were all great and extremely helpful when training was needed.

    I worked at Rockwell Automation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation was just about at market average for the position and office culture was extremely laid back. Ok if you like that sort of thing, but difficult when you want to put your head down and work. The company in general expects innovation and new ideas on a regular basis which is great and sometimes hard to find at other companies of this size.

    Cons

    Medical benefits, small windows only for the offices and conf. rooms so the rest of the floor feels like a dungeon, no real team outings or team building opportunities (at least in our dept) on a regular basis. For the size and income of this company, felt like there should've been more based on prior company experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Highly suggest to lose the mandatory overtime (in certain depts) or you'll lose your highly talented employees. Sure, difficult weeks will come and go but to expect it for months at a time won't work.

    Great place to work by a great lake!

    Pros

    Awesome place for your entire professional career. Vast opportunities (career paths, professional career rotations, business units, and locations globally). Many company sponsored social events for young and old employees including their families. Company really develops employee from day one with rotational training through various career path options. Diversity, inclusion, and respect is the norm. Great senior management team that you can actually meet and talk to (skip level lunches, networking events, etc...). Good managers that also do really help grow your career and skill set. Well above average pay, bonuses, and stock gifts.

    Cons

    Not many! Too many career options!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what we are doing now! Keep creating benefits to compete with companies like Google.

    I worked at Rockwell Automation (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending on your manager it can be pretty laid back. It was a great opportunity for me to get my foot in the door. Co workers were a blast to work with. Great work life balance. Like their culture of inclusion

    Cons

    Slow to change but that's because of the size of the org. Lots of people retire here so not much opportunity for growth. HR realized I was being underpaid after working there for over a year. Even after I showed my salary should've been higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, but also keep up the good work you've been doing so far.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, great corporate culture and an awesome opportunity to move around in the organization as well as advance.

    Cons

    Terminology. Rockwell uses a ton of its own terminology and acronyms, which is fine, however coming aboard as an intern was a bit overwhelming as its almost like another language at first. Academia doesnt properly teach the daily terminology used in some businesses
