    Pros

    Great engineering company with plenty of career opportunities.

    Cons

    Decent wages but raises are below cost of living increases.

    Advice to Management

    During the next recession try a temporary wage reduction like 2009, don't fire good engineers like 2017. Recessions come and go, wisdom is grown organically over time.

    I have been working at Rockwell Automation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Is a good company, but it used to be a great company to work for. Flexible work environment, Great job opportunities for younger people seeking employment.

    Cons

    Many long term employees are being rated unfairly as "needs improvement" by millennial managers. There is no training for managers on generational work styles. HR is aware of the issue, but it is not being addressed. In the past six months, many of these long term employees have been "downsized".

    Advice to Management

    There is a lot of emphasis on keeping and promoting millennials. Millennials don't stay at companies for 10+ years, the investment of training new employees is costing the company more money than keeping long term, well-compensated long term employees. Don't be so fast to downsize long term employees, many of them are truly being rated unfairly by non-experienced millennial managers. We need to train all... managers on Generational Work Styles. Long term employees are loyal and have a vested interest in the success of the company.

    Many opportunities to learn and grow. Good benefits and opportunities to work from home. Management listens to you.

    Limits to performance ratings on reviews and wage opportunities once you are hired. You are better off quitting then coming back to get a real raise. Limited chance of promotion without advanced degrees.

    Reward people who are loyal to you with salary.
