Pros

There are lots of opportunities to pursue your interests. The company is stable with a good reputation amongst its peers.

Cons

It is a very large corporation which often makes it challenging to get things accomplished.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower your employees to make decisions. A lot of time gets wasted due to lack of authority from employees.

    Pros

    Small town, where they are the largest white collar worker. Salary is decent given it is a small town and the cost of living is cheap. You know pretty much everyone in the company. The local level employees work well together excluding upper management. A good age mix of people working at emerson. Don't need a 4 year degree to work there. The company is relatively stable and has been for years, the customer base has core customers that I have not seen leave. If you don't like to travel you are not required to travel at all. People like to drink a lot if you like that.

    Cons

    Technologies are old and out dated, working in the job for to long is a dead end for your career. Management has only one selection criteria for promotions, and that's if you are best friends with the manager that is giving the promotion. Lazy people are often shuffled around when they are poor at doing their jobs, they are never ever fired. Don't need a 4 year degree to work there. Quality travel assignments are handed out to those that are liked sales cruises for favorites in engineering, trips to the north slope in Alaska during october/november if you are not a favorite.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop the favoritism, hand out fair raises, give people quality travel assignments, create paths for advancement.

    Great place for clock punchers, not so great for those wanting to advance their career.

    Pros

    The product training is excellent. ASCO affords you the opportunity to travel around the country, whether it's to attend trade shows or take part in different types of training.

    Cons

    This is an archaic company that has (and will continue to have) a hard time retaining young, educated professionals. If you're someone who likes to punch the clock at the same time everyday and collect a steady paycheck, then this is the place for you. If, on the other hand, you're someone who wants to advance your career and be compensated fairly for your work, then ASCO is the wrong place for you. Despite what is said about "opportunities for growth", there really aren't many. The compensation is rather poor in relation to the workload, and management does a very poor job of replacing people when someone leaves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Next time there is an opportunity to buy a company that produces a product which could help improve our profitability and market share, do it. ASCO has hesitated to do this in the past, and it's catching up to them.
