    Current Employee - Test Engineer in Milwaukee, WI

    I have been working at Rockwell Automation part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of younger people, very nice personalities, room for advancement, understanding that development happens through lateral movement.
    Wide variety of products and lots of good design teams to interact with

    Cons

    Close minded, very old fashioned in terms of management structure, lots of bureaucracy. Then definitely have "molds" they prefer. A young EE or even an ME with experience will get a lot of support. dont fit the mold and they wont be nearly as excited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more open minded to new tech and the evolution of what an "engineer" is. The environment needs to get more productive and creative if they want to stay afloat in the future.

    I have been working at Rockwell Automation

    Pros

    The company takes interest in inclusion and diversity and has a company initiative to make all feel welcomed. The inclusion and diversity initiative touches more than just race, but all aspects of life from a persons background growing up, to a persons personal choices on how they live their personal life.

    Cons

    It seems that the company does not want to push for younger emoloyees to work outside of their home countries for at least 10 years. I think this has them run the risk of loosing great talent.
