    Pros

    You work with very intelligent people, Managers are very easy going and understand real life happens, great potential for career advancement if you continue your education and work hard.

    Cons

    Benefits are lacking, especially Vacation Days and Health Coverage. Training is non-existent and resources are minimal at times. You have to drive to Ferguson Mo to work at the Corporate Headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Long Term the company will need to get more competitive in benefits if it wants to retain talent. This is a Boys Club company if ever there was one, and no paternal leave for certain business units in the company prove that. Poor Benefits will be the downfall of Emerson because they will have a harder and harder time retaining good employees when there is unlimited vacation and great health benefits with the employers they are competing with.

    I have been working at Emerson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, Interesting work, Nice Facilities, People remaining are A-Players who work very hard but getting burned out.

    Cons

    Not a Positive outlook for Oil and Gas, Emerson is almost exclusively tied to Oil and Gas. Review process is the worst I have ever seen as your direct manager and department head have little influence. Moral is low as annual compensation reviews have been deferred. Two large reductions in force the last two years have cut many areas to the bone but management has not matched expectations. Pay - Declining, Opportunity - none, Workload - Increasing

    Advice to Management

    Match your expectations to your current workforce or you will continue to see the the herd heading out to other pastures

    Plan to work long hours and travel if you work in corporate management. They run lean and mean.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time mentoring your hi-pot employees
