Pros

Emerson is an organization full of opportunities for growth especially for people with backgrounds in engineering or science. Co-workers are congenial and opportunities abound at headquarters and the various divisions. Most employees are welcoming and willing to share their experiences and offer advice to new employees. Work-life balance has never been a problem. Most divisions are willing to work around family obligations so that employees can maintain a good balance between the office an home.

Cons

Emerson is a very conservative, process oriented organization. If you are looking for innovation and flexibility, this might not be the best place for you. It is sometimes difficult to navigate the matrixed nature of the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work.

    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

    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.
