Pros

Lots of HR personnel to help, good pay and benefits.

Cons

Lots of politics when it comes to the company. Linked to all of Emerson companies so if one is doing bad, the others have to chip in and cut costs immensely. Has the small town feel, lots of drama

    Pros

    Good benefits. Decent pay. Advancement based on time and skills for levels 1-5. Small potential to advance to district manager. Any higher would require a move.

    Cons

    Being On- Call means your pager goes off at 2am and you have to respond to a customer site immediately and may have to drive several hours to get there and work up to 14 hours to correct the issue before being released to go home or get a hotel. Then 8 hours later after you get home they are bugging you to go on another call. It's not always like this, but it can be, and for several days in a row. And working weekends is mandatory. You will work 2 weekends every month and be on call for a third probably. Can you say Burn Out? I finally did after 13 years.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people for the weekend work load. Check your foresight. It was working really badly when I left. The company had moved from a true-online system back in 2001 to a synchronized system that screwed up all the time and it was a step backwards instead of forwards. Don't punish everyone for the acts of 1 or 2 people. Micromanaging people by putting GPS trackers on vehicles and cell phones and making micro-managerial decisions that turn our managers into nothing more than rule-enforcers is stupid. Stop micro managing and wasting money on BS and give us the tools, manpower and support we need to do our job. Enough said. I'm glad I'm with a new company who trusts their employees and each employee is treated on a case by case basis instead of knee-jerk policies. It's such a breath of fresh air to feel the yoke of micro-management come off of one's shoulders
