I have been working at Rockwell Automation full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Rockwell has great new grad career programs and they retain talent. The schedules are flexible and the company generally cares about it's employees development.

Cons

If you are not in sales or field service your work locations are very limited to less than stellar cities in the Midwest. The also have a very slow product development cycle and change is hard to come by. This is likely due to the conservative past and the many manager levels.

Advice to Management

Take some risk and look to younger generations to make contributions not just sit in holding tanks.

    I have been working at Rockwell Automation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People move around fast, 2 to 3 years. Very flexible environment and excellent approach to work/life balance

    Cons

    Little help in career progression, good-old boys network is very strong, not interested in people who want to drive change. Many incompetent people hide in the matrix organization. Mediocrity is tolerated.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up the dress code, bring more technology development back to the US, get a stock purchase plan and profit sharing benefits as well as better medical insurance.

    I have been working at Rockwell Automation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The ability to move around to new positions frequently, ability to try new things, gaining international experience by working in a multinational company, challenges of constant change

    Cons

    a lot of inconsistency in different managers in different parts of the company, very confusing to know who to talk to when you need something, sometimes too much change

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at some of your managers who are having high employee turnover - there is a reason why
