Current Employee - Marketing Director

I have been working at Emerson full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Market leader in the businesses in which they participate.
Focus on creating value for customers and investors -- through revenue growth and cost containment.
Consistent corporate culture due to continuity of leadership over the last 50 years (3 CEOs).
Data-driven approach minimizes politics, at least as much as can be expected.

Cons

Culture does differ by business unit and division. Your experience in one location can be drastically different from another.
Performance evaluation process is weak.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move faster on acquisition integration. Stamp out politics at the divisional level to reflect the culture at the corporate level.

    Pros

    The pay was good, the work was fun and I worked with a great group of people. I would recommend it. I was really disappointed when I was laid-off.

    Cons

    There weren't really a lot of negatives, just that there is heavy travel and miles on your car. Otherwise it was really good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people know what is going on.

    I worked at Emerson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A friendly place to work.
    Sales oriented company.
    The culture is relaxed for salaried employees and stressful for the hourly employees.

    Cons

    Lacks a competitive salary for both salaried and hourly employees.
    The sales department is the ruling class, all other departments will take a back seat to them.
    Upper management seems to be somewhat disconnected from the rest of the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salary is not reflective of an international company.
