    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.

    Pros

    They pay decently well if you negotiate during your interview.

    Cons

    We're behind the industry in product development. Everything moves at the speed of Rockwell, which is SLOW. Salary increases on internal promotions are capped pretty low, so get your money on the way in.

    The insurance SUCKS. Take the HSA option, but even then, you're getting hosed. Grab another 5k in salary just because of how much you're going to pay for insurance.

    I'm serious. It's baaaaaad.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to get rid of dead weight without waiting 2 years. If you want cross-functional experience across an entire organization, you're going to need to provide more opportunities beyond a few lateral openings a year for employees.

    Also, the LDP program should go away and never come back.

    Pros

    There are very few Pros, the only pro I can think of is that you can get as many hours as you want.

    Cons

    Management is awful, there are very few raises, no room for advancement, not a organized company at all.

    Advice to Management

    Need to treat all people fairly.

    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 Management

    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.
