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

    Pros

    - Majority of the people
    - Employee Resource Groups
    - Forced to be tough and think on your toes
    - Various company socials (several bars onsite)
    - Constantly being pushed to perform
    - Ability to work from home

    Cons

    - High stress environment
    - Folks thinking they have to back-stab to get ahead
    - Not being recognized appropriately enough or in the right manner
    - Poor work/life balance (unspoken rule: should always be available & often logged in)
    - Petty drama can take place and is annoying when there is so much to get done

    Advice to Management

    Development is a key priority but it's a struggle to find time to develop outside of the day-to-day workload, so many get stuck trying to accomplish far too much and get burned out frequently. It's a real rat race, with everyone trying to keep their heads above water, while also avoiding any trouble along the way. It becomes a high-stress balancing act. Find ways to limit the quantity, so employees can focus on the quality, while also finding time to develop themselves adequately enough along the way.
