I worked at Emerson

Pros

Good group of people to work with. Generally a good work environment. Very flexible as far as vacation (though limited amounts each year) and personal time. Reasonably good name recognition. Consistent year over year growth. Overall a solid company with little fear of layoffs. Great tuition reimbursement plan if you stay at the company.

Cons

Poor compensation and benefits compared to other companies and it shows in the quality of some employees. Amount of vacation is low (2 weeks) and doesn't change for 10 years - how ridiculous! In the middle of nowhere. Little opportunity for advancement as an engineer other than through the normal tenured progression. Hard work is not rewarded with just compensation, only occasionally with coupons for the company store. Employees get punished for market conditions by delaying the yearly pay raises which are lousy (3% if that) in the first place. Far too many people that should be fired for poor performance, but the company can't expect much for what they offer. Some employees can be frustratingly lazy and lack motivation to complete projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward good employees. Fire or demote bad employees. Offer more vacation earlier in employee tenure. Attract high performers with better incentives.

    Pros

    It's a job, and you have a little insurance.

    Cons

    Benefits, what you make an hour and getting a raise, that is if you get one. You are lucky if you get one and if you do it does not cover the cost of living. And since they are moving alot of the jobs to Mexico,You worry how long you will have a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and keep company in the U.S . We need worry about our future not Mexico's . I know they work cheaper but, the american people need to keep their jobs.

    I have been working at Emerson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of training and decent opportunity to grow & be promoted. Great organizational culture. Large company with a lot of internal opportunities. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Very large organisation, difficult to address all problems. Large inertia in changing. Difference in organisation and culture between the different business units. But steps are made to generalize the best practices within the entire company (all business units).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had very good experience with upper management. Thank you & keep going,
