    I worked at Rockwell Automation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rockwell has a great company culture in being in the account manager role. Most managers are not into micromanaging and allow you to develop your own selling style.

    Cons

    Unclear directions of what senior managements major goals are for the companies future and a lot of hoops to jump through when trying to gain new business. Not a very diverse company

    Advice to Management

    If improving retention is a goal, than make sure you're understanding what it is your employees value throughout the entire organization and remove the culture of being tapped on the shoulder for promotions.

    I have been working at Rockwell Automation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent knowledgable technical people that are very helpful in assisting you at accounts when needed. Excellent work life balance and a perfect place for a casual "salesperson" that just wants to coast by with paperwork. Excellent job security especially for those more engineering focused than commercially focused.

    Cons

    Writing is on the wall that they are in a mature non growth environment and have been actively changing their compensation models to pay their salesforce less and less or to make it harder for you to achieve the same pay consistently year to year despite continuous high level sales performance.

    Way too many layers of management and "death by a thousand paper-cuts" which consumes the salesforce time and hinders growth.

    Very focused on promoting as many women as fast as possible regardless of qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your salesforce and embolden them with extrinsic motivation to drive results.
