    I worked at Emerson (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very easy going and friendly environment. The workplace is both new and completely secure.

    Cons

    Management isn't very consistent team to team. Some are clock-watchers and others don't interact with their team enough.

    Advice to Management

    Work should be about the content and not what time someone comes in and out. Flexibility lets workers push home life forward.

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

    Pros

    Excellent world-wide market served in controls and sensors, considered highest quality and reliability by customers. Large established customer base. Business units seem to be run conservatively, making financial numbers and without large swings in workforce. Seem to be gaining market share. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Currently in a down market since some business is sensitive to crude oil prices. Customers (large automation facilities, like oil wells and refineries) move slowly over decades, so using latest technology that is not well proven is not a high priority.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going, keep company quality and reputation high.

    I worked at Emerson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    By far, the benefits they offer. Profit sharing is a beautiful resource they offer.

    Cons

    The pay is low. Technically, anyone working in the plant, can make more than their supervisors and Engineers starting at base salary.

    Advice to Management

    Hold all employees to the same standards. By far, salary employees are treated better, and are not micro managed when it comes to being on time, or taking lunch breaks.
