    Pros

    Very secure work enviroment, Emerson is very good at what they do, and have an excellent reputation in the industry. It is a good place for engineers or sales people who like to have a 9 to 5 experience, they have a reasonable work life ballence.

    Cons

    There is very little chance for advancement, they don't typically perform reviews and often hire from outside rather than whithin. Emerson is always aquireing or re-structureing; this can leave the management structure in disarray. They seems to have a relatively high turnover in my division.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a more transparent, accountable leadership strutcure, encourage movement among employees between divisions and LBPs. Extablish rotational programs. Do a better job of vetting incomming managers.

    Pros

    Good for getting industry knowledge

    Cons

    Constant, division-wide worry about job security, even when I was first hired
    At-will employer that took offense when employees (more than several!) gave less than two weeks' notice
    Treated some of their best employees badly
    Encouraged higher education but no one who got it stuck around
    Another employee told me that company was a "get your feet wet then get out quick" place

    Advice to Management

    CEOs don't stay more than a few years. Think about it.
    Clueless about problem-solving
