    Pros

    Management is wonderful and appreciative. They play on your strengths and make sure you are doing what you love and are passionate about. They give you the tools that you need to be successful. They have a method for open communication and excellent inclusive policies.

    Cons

    Going from contract to full-time employee is tricky business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to maintain a good work/family balance and keep investing in your employees.

    Pros

    Customer and worker satisfaction, attention to Quality

    Cons

    1st line Managers focus should be Managing employees on the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be cautious when listening too much to employees on floor because of the tenure most have there, they have very selfish agendas. Need more Women and minorities in leadership roles.

    I have been working at Rockwell Automation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great training opportunity through the EIT program. There are multiple career paths to choose from within the same building (Mayfield Heights, OH). The facility has several accommodations including an employee gym, cafeteria, and convenience store.

    Cons

    Long drawn out projects can make the job seem boring and monotonous. If you aren't from the Cleveland area, prepare for some torturous winters. Benefits aren't the greatest.
