I worked at Emerson

Pros

After doing a good job I would hear from several people about their satisfaction with my work. There are plenty of people willing to hand over work if you are willing to find them.

Cons

Management doesn't seem concerned about the employees very much just budgets and sticking to them. When it comes to defending or fighting for an employee they are lacking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be nice if you were honest with employees instead of shocking people with new decisions. No one seems to communicate enough to make for a smooth working environment.

    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.

    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?
