    I worked at Emerson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, potential to move within the organization to other companies in the portfolio, training opportunities. If you make smart choices you could spend your entire career in this company. Emerson has a portfolio of companies and the span the globe. Within my division alone was Intermetro Industries, Ridge Tool, Closet Maid, Insinkerator and there are Emerson climate tech, and others.

    Cons

    I was laid off when the company moved work to PA and I didnt want to move. They were generous with my severance package, but I was a manager. I don't think the workers fared as well.

    I have been working at Emerson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pay was good, the work was fun and I worked with a great group of people. I would recommend it. I was really disappointed when I was laid-off.

    Cons

    There weren't really a lot of negatives, just that there is heavy travel and miles on your car. Otherwise it was really good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Emerson full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Stable, smart management who run the company's diverse business platforms through management processes developed and improved over decades. Politics are minimal.

    Cons

    Can be slow to change. Sometimes can be too conservative. Some business platforms are much more progressive than others. Compensation and benefit levels are generally competitive, and the company focuses on rentention through career opportunity, good management and communication rather than being the top payer in any given location. Generally this works for them pretty well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.
