    Pros

    Good company that is easy to be proud of working for. Interesting work in a lot of places and the management is willing to move you around to an extent to find the niche for you.

    Cons

    Difficult relationships with coworkers. Rockwell's fragmented buildings makes communication hard and reduces your ability to really feel comfortable. Too reliant on electronic communication and the knowledge gets locked up in the highest performers. Nearly impossible to break into "the trusted circle" if you don't have an abundance of knowledge already. Creates a Catch 22, if you need training, you can't get it, but to get training from the top, you have to already know the material.

    Advice to Management

    When the government systems department reduced team size, things get better to an extent. 40 person teams were too big. The remaining problem was that the teams were in direct competition with each for workers. The teams shouldn't be split to have two competitive teams, they should be complementary.

    Pros

    Interesting, steady work, and advancement opportunities for capable people. An organization that is not afraid to learn from its mistakes and improve, even if at a painfully slow pace.

    Cons

    Cedar Rapids, Iowa is kind of boring. Management will abuse work-life balance for long stretches of time if it means succeeding to make a customer delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chasing quarterly earnings reports and focus on the long-term best for the company. Stop abusing work-life balance and treat your employees with more respect. Reward employees who do excellent work with excellent rewards. A $25 gift card is a joke, not a reward.
