    committed to shareholders but not employees or customers

    Strategic Planner (Former Employee) Saint Louis, MO

    ProsThe company treats its shareholders and management very well. The company is known for its increasing dividends over the past 50 years. Shareholders like Emerson for its generous dividends. The company's senior management enjoys good stock options.

    ConsNo commitment to employees and customers. The company's culture is extremely anti-family and does not allow spouse to work in the same company. The company does not even have a purpose or mission statement. The company's senior management enjoys long vacations but frowns on analysts taking any vacations. The company does not commit to customers. Rather, the management tries to take advantage of customers in order to earn the highest profit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake long-term commitment to the society, not just for the shareholders and senior management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A single word to describe it: Mediocre

    Strategic Planner (Current Employee)

    ProsAverage salaries and work hours. If you want just to get a salary without careers expectations that is the right place for you.

    ConsPeople trend to be there several years just because do not want to change. Only mediocrity people stay. You need 25 years to get a decent position. If you are a woman never get there, they make you feel completely uncomfortable and will be openly receive comments about your
    "presence". It does not matter how good you are or well you do your work, only how much you flatters people. I have been asked to do my boss laundry at a master level!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Little room for career advancement. Group of 'sacred cow' core employees ensure a negative work culture is fostered

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

    ProsEmerson has good technology especially for field devices

    ConsPoor relationships with clients, Change-resisting old staffers. Poor work environment, unprofessional middle management.

    Advice to Senior Management1. Foster a friendly and professional work culture.
    2. Reward qualified people rather than rewarding by cliques and old boys/girls networks.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
