    I have been working at Emerson Process Management full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people you work with are great and upbeat. Management are not micro-mangers and let you take the reins of all situations and will step in when asked to do so. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    They don't pay enough to keep young talent. They do not hire from within and instead hire people who know nothing of the products and the whole factory suffers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within and give more money to hard working employees.

    Pros

    Great people, nice location, has very strict ethical rules. Modern facility explosive growth for some people. Good solid product line.

    Cons

    Easy to get caught in a rut. They have taken away perks but that is due to the economy. Have been caught with down time which lasted a very long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not get too top heavy.

    Pros

    Excellent brand with great customer loyalty. Good benefits and good working environment

    Too much reliance on offshore support merely to save money. In the end the customer suffers.

    Very stable. You can gain solid work experience with this company. Strong Leadership at the top. High expectations of their employees.

    Cons

    To advance you might have to move. Long hours are occasionally required. Pay and benefits are average. Sometimes change can be slow with such a big company.

    Current Employee - Field Engineer in Tinley Park, IL

    I have been working at Emerson Process Management full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I had perks such as a company car that could be driven for any purpose and would be using "free" gas. Something else I really like is that they still have a pension. I've never felt bored in this job there's always more learning to be done. My coworkers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Promotions really happen because of time in the same field not so much value of the employee. Leadership doesn't keep employees well because the pay raises don't come as fast as they should to keep up with the market. No incentives to work harder really.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe offer the field engineers who are working on something some sort of incentive to work on it well or faster.

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

    Pros

    Rigorous business processes, very metrics focused. Lots of tools, and a new emphasis on Human Centered Design for our products. Nice people overall.

    Cons

    Highly Political: They have an MBA program of up and coming leaders, and if you don't have an MBA, or are not part of that program, it is unlikely that you will ever be promoted to director. You must be geographically mobile to get more opportunities for promotion. Promotions are also voted on every year by your managers. The better your cross-functional presentations, the more chances you have for advancement. Very cutthroat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people.
