I worked at Emerson

Pros

A leader amongst all peers in electronics/electrical manufacturing. Emerson product inventories are so valuable that they are used as a key indicator for gauging the overall health of the manufacturing sector.

Cons

Emerson is favoring outsourcing over domestic manufacturing which positivley affects cost of material but negatively affects lead times and finished goods quality. Lack of innovation has also hurt some divisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better transparency between senior management and middle managment/field personnel. Promote communications and enhance ability between different Emerson product divisions dealing with mutual customers.

    The company seems to have a lot of issues since Emerson (parent company) bought them a few years ago.

    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.

    Great Company, but Very Very Conservative, Poor Communication, and NO Flexibility for Families

    I have been working at Emerson

    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.
