    I have been working at Emerson full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable, smart management who run the company's diverse business platforms through management processes developed and improved over decades. Politics are minimal.

    Cons

    Can be slow to change. Sometimes can be too conservative. Some business platforms are much more progressive than others. Compensation and benefit levels are generally competitive, and the company focuses on rentention through career opportunity, good management and communication rather than being the top payer in any given location. Generally this works for them pretty well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up.
