Pros

It is a stable job environment.

Cons

Top management is very competent but there's a big layer of middle management that is totally clueless. And they coast by, year in, year out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to your middle managers. What is the value they are bringing to Emerson?

    It's just a job.

    Pros

    It's a place to work, and sometimes you feel good when you help a customer.

    Cons

    It's a job, it can be a career, but it's just a job. Also, none of the managers seem to care when you're doing well. They only care when something bad is happening. I've been used as a scapegoat, when I was forced to make a decision because my manager wouldn't. If I cared more about my job, I may be pissed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I mentioned this when I first came to the company. There's no effort to build a family within the company. When I go to work I'de like to want to see the people I work with, but that's not how it is. Also it would be nice to get some positive feedback when a good job is being done.

    I appreciate your steady hand, but some of the messages are not implemented at the bottom.

    Pros

    Great technology and products. Low churn rate. Co-worker knowledge and teamwork is great due to so many old timer 20-30 year employees.

    Cons

    Not much movement, since no-one leaves. Pay is low. Smart ambitious people cannot get ahead. Your promotions and authority are determined by with which site you are in, rather than your skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they are doing a great job of getting the most out of people for the least amount of pay. From that perspective, they are doing great. I own enough stock so I benefit from both sides.
