    Pros

    Flexible work environment. Overall good work-life balance. Rockwell has reasonable benefits and a good corporate office that has a large cafeteria, health center and fitness center.

    Cons

    Difficult to ensure continuous growth with the company unless you are willing to relocate internationally. The work life balance within the functions are rocky due to certain business units being somewhat unorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time creating opportunities for females within the Finance realm.

    Pros

    Pay is decent for this area of Wisconsin.

    Cons

    Zero work/life balance in some BUs. Ops is notorious. Ops loves to run understaffed and have their employees leave their personal life behind. While other BUs have deadbeat employees who don't even work a full week, amd produce little or nothing while they are at thier desk. VERY uneven treatment. And they trumpet healthy this and healthy that as management pushes the employees who actually produce, to a work life of constant stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a break from giving yourselves bonuses and cashing all those stock options like winning lottery tickets, and start showing the grunts who do the real work that paid for your gravy train lifestyle, the respect they deserve.
