    Excellent oppurtunity and career advancement

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Emerson

    Pros

    Salary is competive for the role, as well as decent benefits. Vacation, Insurance, etc are competitive with the industry. Safety is a very high priority and management has your back.

    Cons

    Not really too many cons. It is a big corporation so flexibility at times is limited on their end. Also outsource quite a bit of work to low cost countries.

    I have been working at Emerson full-time

    Pros

    Salary is good, fun benefits in many of the departments. Group is fun to work with. Challenging work at times. Company rewards those who work hard and stay with them long term. Good work-life balance, travel expectations are low for some positions.

    Cons

    Not many training opportunities. Expects relocation throughout career, must be very mobile. Old school benefits, who still offers a pension? Company lacks diversity (of race, gender, and age) in many of the U.S. locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hard to recruit top young talent with the benefits package that has not been updated in many decades. Spouses work (or like to) in the 21st century, hard to relocate a family w/o company support.

    Current Employee - CNC Operator in Elyria, OH

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

    Pros

    Great pay for CNC machinist.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work everyday of your time. When you are at work you are expected to skip lunch and your breaks. Since the pay is based on production every time you stop the machine you lose money. Most people last about 4 years before they can't take it anymore and have to quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sending manufacturing jobs overseas!

    Pros

    Overall very well managed company that is stable, promotes from within, had only 3 CEOs since 1956. Although a US based company, more sales outside US. Places ethics very high.

    Cons

    Divisions operate in silos. There is hardly any collaboration between them.
