    I worked at Emerson Network Power full-time

    Pros

    This is my first company and I am so proud to be part of it for more than four years. It respects each and every employee and encourages employees to be more innovative.

    Cons

    Company can be a little flexible like providing work from home option. Also they do not encourage employees to shift from one team to another team.

    Pros

    Good starter job to get into a large company. Company car, independence to set up your schedule.

    Cons

    long hours, weekend work, on call, management could give a crap about you as a Field Tech. The pay starts out lower then most other UPS companies like Eaten, or APC. Other UPS companies give there employees sales commissions Emerson does not. They have a point system that is very inadequate like $100,000 in sales will get you a PlayStation 3. Third party sales companies get all the money from any sale even though you did all the leg work. They are not willing to pay people enough to keep them, witch leads to techs having to travel outside of your area to support lost employees in different areas. They roll out new programs and units without proper testing and they fail for the first 2 years until someone gets their head out of their ^$$. No one gets fired unless you are in the field.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your techs more to start so that they don't leave as soon. You would triple your sales if you gave the people in the field a piece of the pie.

    Pros

    Pay is good and the benefits are OK. I've learned more about 3 phase power

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to care about anything but the stock holders bottom line. Communication is horrific. I feel disrespected by most of the management. Training is pathetic. Most of production is moving to Mexico. They treat hourly workers bad and salary only slightly better. Most of my opinions is shared by my coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your workers like you want to be treated and you will get better results all around.

    Pros

    Pension plan, annual bonuses, and patent bonuses are part of the compensation.

    Cons

    Ruthless backstabbing and VP pets promote a culture where every non-manager works in fear and covers their every move.

    During the coldest months, many go out to lunch with no coats so they don't bring attention to themselves from management.

    Women and minorities are rare. Any complaints to HR are shared with management to develop a plan of legal retaliation against the employee.

    Emerson outsourcing is the rule of thumb and becomes very clear the longer you are there.

    Salaries are low and raises are small and distributed evenly regardless of variations in performance between employees. Long term employees near retirement are treated the worst, as if they are an expendable nuisance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like humans, especially the ones who are low on the ladder or older. Control power hungry middle managers who play favorites.

    Pros

    Good place to work if you want to get in touch with other industry minds and network from there. Lots of brilliant and talented people to work with.

    Cons

    Almost no personal growth. Any promotions available are micromanaged by the most useless HR department ever created. Almost all new engineering functions are done overseas and most production either has or is being transitioned to Mexico.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Used to be a great place. Stop the bleeding and recapture the old magic. Before it is too late.

    Good company. The leadership at corporate in St. Louis is world class. Good name in the industry that commands respect.

    Cons

    There are a lot of reporting requirements for the executive staff. Corporate has realized this as a problem and has taken steps to reduce this time drain.
