Good, clean place to work. Great group of employees to work with.
Assembler (Former Employee), Sumner, IAAugust 12, 2013
Pros: great healthcare and other benefits.
Worked with a team of workers on an assembly line working 8-10 hours per day Monday through Friday. Worked some Saturdays during the busy times and once in a while a Sunday. Saturday and Sundays were usually a 6 hour workday. The line that I worked on was working with a great team. The management was good to work with also. The most enjoyable part of – more... the job was the people that I worked with. The hardest part was when the announcement was made that the Sumner plant would be closing. – less

Inside Sales is the Red-Headed Step-Child
Insides Sales Representative (Former Employee), Greenville, SCAugust 7, 2013
Pros: not much
Cons: everything
Don't get expected to be promoted in this company. They find everyone from somewhere else. The HR Department is full of females on a power trip. Coworkers have that "certain" personality that will grate on you nerves after the first day. Good Luck at this company!

Very focussed and ethical company. I worked 100% on customer site and so relationships with other Rockwell staff tended to be mostly professional.
Asset Management Professional (Former Employee), Cwmbran (customer site)July 17, 2013
Pros: varied and flexible role with no direct management standing over you.
Cons: customer expectation that you are always available, even out of hours.
Based at customer site, I was the focus of customer's various demands and requests for help with managing equipment repairs, MRO and projects.

Learned about some of Rockwell Automation products, but also how a sales related role differs from purely a maintenance role. Remaining customer focussed continuously through the working day and out of hours.

Direct – more... management was remote from my position and so was mostly by e-mail & telephone.

Co-workers were engineers in simlar role at other customer sites, or back-office staff that processed orders & invoicing. Relationships were always very good, everyone always willing to help each other whenever it was requested. Did meet most of these people at head office quarterly meetings.

The hardest part of the job was providing solutions that proved to be a hard cost saving to customer needs, which was the main reason for the contract.
The most enjoyable part was getting positive feedback from customer management on providing a cost effective or timely solution when customer was in need. – less

Stressful and Rough on body
Assembler (Former Employee), Twinsburg, ohioJune 27, 2013
The management was not kind to their employees. Working assembly I would get my fingers cut up from units and the constant lifting and bad height of benches made my body hurt bad everyday. Short lunch and breaks. Had to walk long distance to just get outside.

Productive, alot if heart and detication goes into the work
Board Tester Technician (Current Employee), Richland Center, WIJune 3, 2013
Pros: good pay, ok benifites, they seem to offer a decent amount of vacation. which you need to keep your sanity
Cons: i guess my biggest issue is, there is a major disconnect between management and shifts now
It is a decent enough place to work. It use to be a great place... But it seems like with the new management, there is more of a punishment mentality rather then a reward mentality. So lately it is nose to the grind stone or you loose your nose... figuratively speaking of course.

Great place to start
Research & Development Electronic Technician (Former Employee), Mequon, WIMay 30, 2013
Rockwell is a great place to start. The company invests a lot of money in training and compensation. There is a big gulf between employees and contractors, and the company definitely use that to its advantage. Pay is ok (depending on assignment), but there is little to no stability in working as a contractor. Don't expect to be hired in either

Great company to work for as long as you are willing to re-locate every few years. if you have a family with strong roots in your current living area, you will not be able to advance quickly, or at all.

Average Company
Associate Manufacturer (Current Employee), Richland Center, WIMay 13, 2013
Pros: pay is good
Cons: constant changes and keep up with rules
Learned how to read schematics and wire and identify electrical components.

Management has over turned several time in the past few years. Constant changes in employee handbook and rules. Just want to go to work and do my job. Yes making changes for the good is fine. But have gone full circle in some areas and are back to square one in some cases. – more... Have to wonder about job security and how long a company can keep that up. What goes today, may not go tomorrow.

Enjoy the work and my co workers. Can do without the drama – less
