Pros

Large global organization with many dimensions and a lot of talented people.

Cons

Since it's such a large organization that's grown through many acquisitions it's very fragmented. Can be very challenging to work with all the division's in productive manner. Very few people are aware all the organizations capablities.

Advice to Management

Recommend restructuring and consolidating sales force. Look into acquiring LBP and or letting qualified LBP's absorb direct channel. Some divisions (e.g. Fisher) have too much imbreeding, reccommend more cross divisional training/pollenation is neeeded (GE has a good model). Very few people are aware entire orgnanizations capabilites. Reccemond nominating local Account Lead's for large key and strategic accounts so there is a well coordintated effort that has a higher return for both the customer and Emerson and allows for better penetration of account.

    Pros

    Emerson is an organization full of opportunities for growth especially for people with backgrounds in engineering or science. Co-workers are congenial and opportunities abound at headquarters and the various divisions. Most employees are welcoming and willing to share their experiences and offer advice to new employees. Work-life balance has never been a problem. Most divisions are willing to work around family obligations so that employees can maintain a good balance between the office an home.

    Cons

    Emerson is a very conservative, process oriented organization. If you are looking for innovation and flexibility, this might not be the best place for you. It is sometimes difficult to navigate the matrixed nature of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Small town, where they are the largest white collar worker. Salary is decent given it is a small town and the cost of living is cheap. You know pretty much everyone in the company. The local level employees work well together excluding upper management. A good age mix of people working at emerson. Don't need a 4 year degree to work there. The company is relatively stable and has been for years, the customer base has core customers that I have not seen leave. If you don't like to travel you are not required to travel at all. People like to drink a lot if you like that.

    Cons

    Technologies are old and out dated, working in the job for to long is a dead end for your career. Management has only one selection criteria for promotions, and that's if you are best friends with the manager that is giving the promotion. Lazy people are often shuffled around when they are poor at doing their jobs, they are never ever fired. Don't need a 4 year degree to work there. Quality travel assignments are handed out to those that are liked sales cruises for favorites in engineering, trips to the north slope in Alaska during october/november if you are not a favorite.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the favoritism, hand out fair raises, give people quality travel assignments, create paths for advancement.
