    Pros

    Technology and approach was interesting at the time Great co-workers, decent project budgets. Opportunity for advancement if you were willing to move or travel.

    Cons

    Lots of layoffs, good employees were let go because they didn't mesh with the corporate culture. Lack of communication between St Louis and remote locations and divisions. With distributed enterprise, lots of conference calls at odd hours of the day and lots of travel.

    I worked at Emerson (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Place to Work, Helpful people, Flexible Work environment, Management takes very good care of their employees, High impact/visible work

    Cons

    Emerson is not a pay master. Hence compensation wise they could be a little bit more competitive. Employment locations arent that great if you are looking for a quick change.

    Pros

    Stable company. An old warhorse. Always delivers a dividend. Plenty of cash and old money.

    Cons

    Advancement is based on relationships - you better know somebody, otherwise, you are done. Management at corporate is out of touch. The magic touch is gone. The old habits of slash and cut, slash and cut has worn thin. If the CEO's grandmother's rent could be cut, this company would do it. Exhausting and ridiculous. Old habits die hard.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the incessant cutting! Invest in your employees, no need to be so damn cheap with them. The healthcare is below average, and the salaries for your better employees in the trenches is embarrassingly low.
