Excellent corporate culture, experience will differ by business unit and division

Marketing Director (Current Employee)

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

ProsMarket 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
