    I worked at Emerson

    Pros

    Emerson Electric Corporation invests in their employees. I have been able to experience many parts of a business. I have learned what it takes to manage a business in a highly successful corporation.

    Cons

    Detailed reporting and planning does become time consuming. I question the benefit to the corporation vs. the cost on the division.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emerson Electric Corporation has a best-in-class business planning process. I would suggest that this process be scale-able. Larger divisions should complete the planning process as currently designed. Smaller divisions would still participate in the process but have fewer requirements. Smaller divisions would still benefit from the process without investing as much time as larger divisions. Understanding the waterfall process, it is difficult to select which exhibits to scale back on. One simple way to impact effort would be to limit the slide count based on annual sales.

    I worked at Emerson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fair salaries, decent opportunities to grow

    Cons

    company depends too much on low cost labor manufacturing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stick to best cost producer strategy rather than lowest price, don't trust Chinese and Korean joint venture partners to NOT stonewall productivity numbers to inspire early buy out, then actually hit previously "unachievable" targets and beat the US firm on competitive bids not long after the exit is complete

    I have been working at Emerson

    Pros

    Salary is competive for the role, as well as decent benefits. Vacation, Insurance, etc are competitive with the industry. Safety is a very high priority and management has your back.

    Cons

    Not really too many cons. It is a big corporation so flexibility at times is limited on their end. Also outsource quite a bit of work to low cost countries.
