    Pros

    Excellent management processes. Learned a lot and was given tremendous opportunities for growth.

    Risk averse. Listen to ideas of newcomers who can contribute experiences other than the Emerson way.

    Pros

    Professional growth was a constant, it was a very fluid environment challenging you to stay very well versed in your craft.

    Slow down to recognize the talent in your environment.
