    Former Employee - EHS Intern

    I worked at Emerson Process Management as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Leadership in this company is very well executed. This can be seen from the top all the way to the bottom of management. The work-life balance was satisfactory. Any time there was something needed to complete the job, it was provided.

    Cons

    The only drawback with this particular company is the lack of room for promotion. Since this company is highly desirable, there are many who maintain their position and do not relinquish it easily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Growth is something that should be embraced and understood. Creation of new positions to handle this growth would create opportunities for those eager to make an impact.

    Current Employee - Automation Engineer I in Irvine, CA
    Current Employee - Automation Engineer I in Irvine, CA

    I have been working at Emerson Process Management full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very stable job, normal sallary pay even if no contract work, but possibility for OT pay when on a project. Great work environment. Very flixible when it comes to working hours and conditions.

    Cons

    Fiscally conservative. Raises tend to be small with no bonuses and fairly standard benifits packages. Work tends to come in waves, sometimes having no work to do for months followed by 80 hour work weeks for months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Only advice I would have is attempting to get a more constant stream of projects in some way.

    Current Employee - Department Supervisor in Marshalltown, IA
    Current Employee - Department Supervisor in Marshalltown, IA

    I have been working at Emerson Process Management full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the ability to grow and relocate are almost endless. You aren't placed in a role and left there, you are asked to venture out of your comfort zone and help in other areas.

    Cons

    The glaring problem to me is the overall lack of leadership. Little is done to retain younger high potential candidates and this is causing a lack of replacement candidates to take over. The raise difference between a met expectations and a exceeds expectations can be 1%, there is little incentive to go above and beyond.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place more value on the knowledge people have. It seems like upper management believes that anyone can do any job, with little value placed on job specific knowledge.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN

    I have been working at Emerson Process Management full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you have a degree in Engineering, you can move into any role (manager, director, VP) or any department (Marketing, Sales, Service, Product Management, Operations, etc.).

    Cons

    If you are a true marketing professional (have a degree and experience in marketing or marketing communications) you can only hold an entry level marcom supportive role with responsibilities for execution and doing all the work. There are only a few marcom jobs with Rosemount. Marketing Managers must have an engineering degree as well as Marketing Engineers (Product Managers). This is even a rule communicated by HR.

    To progress into a Director role, including Marketing Director, Training Director, etc. you have to have a degree in Engineering. Promotion is based on years of service with the company and not experience, expertise, or accomplishments. They prefer to promote an engineer with zero experience and let them figure out how to do the job rather than hiring someone with experience in that field. It is common for new DIrectors to buy books for guidance on their new roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! If you want to meet or exceed your sales goals it is time to start hiring true marketing people in marketing roles and come into the 21st century.
