    Pros

    Gives you the tools to do your job well. Information abounds. And some of the sharpest engineers I've ever worked with. FIRST program for kids gets youngsters interested in STEM at an early age, starting with LEGO then working up to robotics!

    Cons

    Wish they would've found me earlier in my career!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing the industry forward.

    Great place to work by a great lake!

    I have been working at Rockwell Automation

    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 have been working at Rockwell Automation

    Pros

    There are a lot of good software projects to work on and opportunities to create innovative solutions. The people are great to work with and it is a very collaborative environment. Office atmosphere varies by location with smaller campuses being more casual.

    Cons

    There are some corporate philosophies, programs like employee engagement and culture of inclusion that can make the environment seem dated and less than cutting edge. The workforce is older so it can be difficult for younger employees to create an environment more in tune to that generation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an environment and culture for the future that inspires innovation for the future.

    Pros

    Friendly environment for all minorities, all ages, all colors and all religions. Possibility for development is great. Hi ethics and values. Excellent work hour flexibility.

    Cons

    Compensations are average. Could improve on appreciations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciation from management is not equally supported among the different divisions and business and area. Some managers are over appreciative, while others do not appreciate at all. Many some managers training and standardization is needed.

    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

    think and do. your own boss if you want it that way
