Painter (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 7 March 2018
My day started with meeting the head painter and get my painting duties for the shift. Then I would start painting according to the managers requirements. Then clean up work station at the end of my shift. The managers and co workers were amazing as we all assisted and supported one another. The hardest part of this position was the night shifts. However, I enjoyed how the day moved quickly and I could independently on the tasks outlined for my shift.
Productive and fun place to work with table tennis table
System Firmware Engineer (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 25 August 2017
I loved working at Rockwell. I learned a lot from very experienced full time engineers. Management is also very organised. They use Agile development process which helps keep everyone in the team very focused. The managers never let the developers feel the heat coming from the higher ups. Overall a nice place to work
Good working environment, nice people
Nothing much to do in Cambridge, office is old and outdated lookswise
Awesome place to work the people where awesome. I left to move back to Newfoundland

Non-Inclusive Culture & Negative Working Environment
Management-Sales Environment (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 May 2017
Rockwell Automation falsely advertises that they are an inclusive culture & have a positive working environment. Nothing is further from the truth. They do not share information with their staff and keep their employees in the dark, often lying to their faces. Rockwell only cares about incoming sales and the rest of the staff are treated like second class citizens. Rockwell's 'leadership' is terrible and the people they have in charge of Canada are incompetent and frankly, mean spirited. I would never advise anyone to work for this Company. Rockwell does very little to provide training or support for their staff, often leaving them alone to figure it out on their own. Rockwell does not reward or value innovation or forward thinking leadership and new ideas. From my experience, Rockwell leadership only wants you to speak when spoken to and to just keep it to yourself if you have a new idea. I do not recommend this Company to anyone who would like to work in a positive working environment.
Random and continuous development and improvement process

account manager (Former Employee) – Canada – 13 January 2016
RA is driven by the bottom $ only they do not look ahead they will layoff just to make the number, Was there for 2 years and during that time 3 layoff regardless of the time you were with the company if you were part of the buddy system you survive. They have a major chip on their shoulder we are RA and people will buy us anyway, this is not a good attitude for the customer. A lot of people are making time just to get their point to retire
Job security is a big factor with more layoffs to come
Shipper Receiver (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 12 January 2016
Rockwell Automation at one time (not in the last two years) only hired through a Temp Agency. It took many people two or more years to make it a fulltime permanent position. Once fulltime has been achieved, the previous temp time is not included in seniority. with so many other people having been there for a number of years (when people were hired within three months), there is a big gap in seniority when it comes to layoffs. I am a good example of this senairio. I've spent the last 10+ years At Rockwell and we are soon to be hit with a third round of layoffs and I'm next unfortunatley
