    Former Employee - Maintenance in Chino, CA

    I worked at Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Maintenance pay is good.

    Cons

    No organization. No automation. No leadership. No communication. No accountability. No incentives. No advancement opportunities. People "in charge" have zero skills. They can't even load a program and start the machines in their own department. Over half of the personnel are temps and don't care in the slightest about the company or the work. Average age of machine is over a decade. HR meeting recently told all employees that positions are filled by seniority. More qualified people do not get open jobs if someone with seniority applies. Even if they have not worked one hour in the department! Stay away

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire actual managers and actual leads. Have reviews for every employee. The worst employee gets the same annual raise as the best. Employees worth keeping, leave as soon as they can. Only the lazy ones stay. It's a joke.

    I have been working at Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employees relatively friendly, ok benefits and compensation. Computer systems are complex and easy to use. Cafeteria is nice and gym is a nice benefit as well.

    Cons

    Work is boring and spread out between too many people. Too much turnover in various departments. Individuals have too much time on their hands. Compensation is average and could be better to meet the other area companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your departments so people have challenges and can do thier job without having to review with 10 other people doing the exact same thing.

    Pros

    You have the ability to work on any machine that you want to try. If you ask to work on a machine you will be given the chance to do so. Everyone is kind and will help you when you need it or just ask and they will do what they can. InSinkErator has great benefits and the company does so much extra for you it is a fun environment to be in.

    Cons

    You are able to bump shifts if you have sonority, so when you start here on first shift. You could be bumped to third shift and there is nothing you can do about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Connection to Emerson, training opportunities

    Cons

    Entire SMT is clueless, they have been in the same positions for 10plus years. No growth or upward mobility. Pay is really low, managers not empowered, too focused on software development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for another position and fill your positions with new talent.

    Current Employee - Prefer Not to Say in Elyria, OH

    I have been working at Emerson Commercial and Residential Solutions

    Pros

    Pros are based upon which department you actually work in: Managers mostly leave you alone, can be flexible with work life balance depending on how well you are liked or disliked by your manager. Pay is competitve. Christmas bonus is nice.

    Cons

    Vacation is not competive, 2 weeks after 1 year, then wait 10 years for a 3rd week. Very male dominated, no women in key management positions and the women that actually have a manager title are not permitted to make a decision without their male managers approval, no minorities. Women are treated as they were back in the 60's. Gossip runs rampant throughout the company, managers ignore problems and do not address issues as they arise. When the market goes down, employees with the most seniority and over 50 are the first to be cut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Since you do not correvt the negative issues as a result of the employee survey, stop the surveys.

    Pros

    I feel they have a good training program. They make sure you are worth what they pay you. Which all around helps everyone.

    Cons

    If management doesn't like you, no matter why, you are gone. The guy who had my job last got let go for no reason at all. showed up to work one day and found out that was it, another guy has been her 20yrs and got demoted to assy. small parts now. They will do what they have to to get rid of you. My boss is a good guy, and the guy I replaced told me that as well. But if you want to work here you better fit into the click.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to listen to the employees some times. Sometimes they don't work to par, they go from great to bad, sometimes there are things going on in their lives as well. Some go to war and come home and have to lean to deal with life again, just as an example.
