    I worked at Rockwell Automation as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great place to work for a 12 month contract. They have great people their and they treat people well.

    Cons

    They tend to be reluctant to keep contractors for much longer than a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems that you could use some improvement in implementing technologies such as GD&T and tolerance stackup since there seems to be reluctance on the part of some employees to take advantage of things they aren't familiar with.

    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.
