Best company I ever worked for.

Sales and Service Representative (Current Employee)
Danbury, CT

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

ProsThe 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.

ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementLet people know what is going on.

Emerson is big, global and diverse with good job opportunities for motivated people.

Executive Level (Current Employee)

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

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

ConsCan 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 Senior ManagementKeep it up.
