    A highly professional corporate environment. Colleagues who are happy to share information and collaborate to reach individual and business goals. Good working environment, beautiful offices.

    Plenty of processes and platforms to learn (as in any large company)

    Pros

    Business updates are communicated regularly, huge longevity within the company which creates great teams to work with. Benefits are good and advertised well.

    Cons

    Salary increases are not in line with inflation. Senior staff can encourage hierarchy.

    Advice to Management

    Hierarchy needs to be reviewed. We pride ourselves on people being the foundation of our organisationand not being told how important individuals are within teams.

    I worked at Rockwell Automation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Longevity of service and knowledge for many staff. Progressive outlook from US led company.

    Cons

    Seems to be a relatively high turnover of "younger blood" leading potential issues with innovation. US HQ lives in a world of US market dominance and don't always demonstrate that being the minnow in a market is different. Lack of job security for UK based employees - lots of outsourcing and global role consolidation. VERY short-term focused. Bonus scheme based on Earnings per share in the US - irrelevant and largely uncontrollable for most people..

    Advice to Management

    Stimulate innovation in the core base of staff. Trust senior continental leadership to make the right decisions for their business - eg all recruitment (shouldn't need to be approved at the very highest levels in the US, margin decisions for negotiation of new business deals etc

    I worked at Rockwell Automation full-time

    Pros

    Strong corporate culture. Generally well rewarded. Some good additional benefits. Interesting and varied work. Colleagues are typically open and supportive.

    Cons

    Too many global corporate objectives to comply with. Career progression is not always on the basis of merit with appointments made without the positions being advertised internally sometimes. Geographically diverse teams can lead to employees feeling unsupported and remote from manager.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to focus on doing their best work and serving customers instead of having to prioritise compliance to bureaucratic corporate rules and objectives.

    Pros

    interesting work. Lot of opportunity to be at different places in the world

    Cons

    No job safety. No career growth. low pay, low per diem.

    Pros

    Great career options and if you show interest, they will allow you to try new things. Lots of training oppurtunities, travel and they have a very flat hierarchy.

    Cons

    Complex hierarchy, as with nearly any corporate company. However they are all pretty open minded and very willing to help you obtain the right information or find the right person.

    Advice to Management

    N/A

    Highly professional and technically advanced company with great individuals working across the globe. Have always been treated well and with respect.

    Depending on what you working on at the time can be quite demanding. Some times need to work well past the "normal" work hours but that's engineering !
