Pros

Great company with seemingly great opportunities. Pay is good at HQ, but not most of the branches.

Cons

Very conservative and cheap. Most of management has been here 30 years and are inflexible. Little value and importance is placed on families and life outside of work. The expectation is you are married to Emerson. Corporate environment is huge turn off to ambitious, young professionals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be flexible and willing to make difficult choices. This includes firing someone who has been here 30 years and simply placed it in cruise control until retirement. These people are killing morale and driving away your future VPs.

    Solid company, generally stress free job, a chance to choose your own path within the company.

    Pros

    The company respects employees work life balance. Generally 40 hour work weeks are the norm with 50 or more during crunch seasons. There is a lot of room within the job descriptions to take on your own projects and build a niche for yourself. The job gives you time to go above and beyond.

    Cons

    When you tell people you work for Emerson Process Management, they usually ask who that is. When you try to explain what they are and what they do. It just leaves them more confused. The answer: "They make industrial measuring devices" doesn't help much. The Chanhassen HQ is out on the edge of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. Urban types won't be thrilled about the location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. I think they have a great senior management team that know the industry and are keeping the company on the right track.

    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?
