Pros

The company allows its employees quite a bit of autonomy. Emerson also offers in-house training for its employees.

Cons

Emerson's goal is to continue to grow its low cost country workforce and supply base. This does not bode well for the future of its employees and operations in the US and Europe.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Emerson's reputation will suffer if the continual push for low cost suppliers and material cost reductions creates a culture of indifference to quality.

    Emerson pretends to an innovative company, until real innovation threatens one of the larger divisions.

    Pros

    It is a financially sound company, which is very important. If they stick to their core values, they will be around for a very long time. Emerson is probably a better company to invest in than work for.

    Cons

    Below average compensation.

    The corporate culture makes it very hard to solve problems, because the problem solving process has become more important than solving the problem itself.

    Although Emerson Process Management touts itself as an innovator, you'd better make sure your innovation doesn't make one of the big divisions (PSS, Rosemount, or Regulators) look bad, because your innovation will be killed.

    Emerson Process Management also has a reputation for being very arrogant, especially outside of the U.S. Emerson seems to have the opinion that customers will buy what we tell them, because we know what's best.

    It was announced just recently that Emerson Process Management was going to start talking to customers before developing new products. How innovative. How fresh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep managing the company financially the way you have been for the last 100+ years. You are doing a great job. Realize, however, that to develop truly innovative products and services requires an open mindset that just does not exist in the organization.

    Pros

    Good Stable company. Profitable. High Potential Employees can advance quickly. Opportunities around the world. Promotes from within. Innovative people with ability to solve problems in all functions and areas. Onsite fitness center and classes available.

    Cons

    Work - life balance is not great. Location within St. Louis is bad. There is nowhere to live nearby - most commute 30+ minutes. Old manufacturing culture. Office politics at its worst.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue expanding into emerging markets. Work on developing talent and leadership within.
