    Pros

    The company has been in existence a long time, and has many experienced problem solvers from which to gain knowledge. There is a culture of win-win that enables solid customer relationships.

    Cons

    Still many silos of information not readily shared unless you know the right person to ask. Like every large company, there are a few bad apples that can be avoided by careful career planning.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your contributors, not just those that take credit.

    Pros

    Emerson is a very stable company. Their products are interesting to work with. Their profit sharing / 401K is much better than average.

    Cons

    Management is very conservative. They prioritize stable value for shareholders above longer term investments in innovation. Constant "belt tightening" actions are annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to employees. They have some innovative ideas that could lead to blockbuster products, but they need some investment.

    Pros

    Very positive experience working at Emerson Network Power division. Learned to work with Global Design/Manufacturing Engineering team members located all around the world.

    Cons

    Emerson being a Worldwide company, designing/manufacturing is very cost effective but it delay the project due to various reasons such as holidays/vacations of foreign employes.

    Advice to Management

    Employes in foreign countries should work in the time zone of the company in USA.
