    If I could work somewhere else I would. Jobs in my field are hard to find.

    Pros

    The only positive here is you have flexible hours, somewhat.

    Cons

    Everything. Since this company has purchased us everything has gone down hill. They do not respect their employees.

    I have been working at Emerson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Emerson Climate is a relatively risk-averse company that knows how to grow the bottom line. Strong customer relationships and vision towards the future. The people respect each other regardless of where you sit in the food chain...

    Cons

    Out-dated processes, policies, and benefits packages. SIgnificant intertia within the organizational culture to accept change for the benefits it will bring. Often times the company can be slow to make decisions and execute. However, this could be a function of the industry as I'm not certain the grass is greener elsewhere....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really assess the employer competitive landscape and realize that many of our processes and policies are way behind the times. (eg. Paper-based paychecks, performance review process that is broken and not linked to benefits/compensation at all, very limited variable compensation motivation for employees to work hard and be "A players.")

    Continue to have the foresight to think 3, 5 and 10 years into the future and work to reduce/minimize the "control" part of the Emerson management process. (ie. There are too many internal reviews and prep sessions associated with this versus people spending time figuring out how to grow the top-line)

    Pros

    The best part of working here is the level of training available on a corporate level. It is a pleasant environment to work in.

    Cons

    Some of the cops to working here include the usual. Some silos are hats to break down. The pay can always be better and so on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good place to work. We need to work with other entities under the Emerson umbrella.

    I have been working at Emerson full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you have a degree in Engineering, you can move into any role (manager, director, VP) or any department (Marketing, Sales, Service, Product Management, Operations, etc.).

    Cons

    If you are a true marketing professional (have a degree and experience in marketing or marketing communications) you can only hold an entry level marcom supportive role with responsibilities for execution and doing all the work. There are only a few marcom jobs with Rosemount. Marketing Managers must have an engineering degree as well as Marketing Engineers (Product Managers). This is even a rule communicated by HR.

    To progress into a Director role, including Marketing Director, Training Director, etc. you have to have a degree in Engineering. Promotion is based on years of service with the company and not experience, expertise, or accomplishments. They prefer to promote an engineer with zero experience and let them figure out how to do the job rather than hiring someone with experience in that field. It is common for new DIrectors to buy books for guidance on their new roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! If you want to meet or exceed your sales goals it is time to start hiring true marketing people in marketing roles and come into the 21st century.
