    Good company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFinancially solid offering best-in-class products to the marketplace. Heavy focus on the shareholder. So, be a shareholder while an employee of Emerson!

    ConsFew opportunities to work from home. Too many engineers at the managerial level. The company would benefit from diversity at higher ranks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore acquisitions are needed.

    ClosetMaid is a wonderful place to work overall.

    Quality Technician (Former Employee)
    Ocala, FL

    ProsDecent opportunity to advance and be promoted. Good pay for the area (cost of living) and other comparable jobs in area. Fun picnics too. Lots of training and ability to move up within certain areas.

    ConsSometimes, qualified applicants within the company are passed over for outside applicants. Not always able to offer a flexible schedule. Employee reviews have no real meaning since everyone scores the same with the same comments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook harder at internal employees for promotion, even if they do not apply for a promotion.

    Felt Valuable

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are a lot of opportunity to grow since the company is so huge. They have several Business Groups that you can transfer to in case you're not happy with your current group. They value their employees and tries their best to provide what the employees want.

    ConsI don't know if it's really a significant cons but you don't get to put a face in the name. Since the company is global, you get to work with a lot of different people from defferent countries whom you will never see in person unless you get to visit their site or they visit yours, which seldom happens.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou may improve on the benefits since we're always on the middle range in terms of salary and benefits compared to other huge global companies. Nevertheless, you are doing a good job!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent corporate culture, experience will differ by business unit and division

    Marketing Director (Current Employee)

    ProsMarket leader in the businesses in which they participate.
    Focus on creating value for customers and investors -- through revenue growth and cost containment.
    Consistent corporate culture due to continuity of leadership over the last 50 years (3 CEOs).
    Data-driven approach minimizes politics, at least as much as can be expected.

    ConsCulture does differ by business unit and division. Your experience in one location can be drastically different from another.
    Performance evaluation process is weak.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMove faster on acquisition integration. Stamp out politics at the divisional level to reflect the culture at the corporate level.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
