    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Emerson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Periodic annual training in safety, protective gears, work ethics and work conducts.
    Good profit sharing and pension.
    Cafeteria service.

    Cons

    Disconnect of the management from the engineering. It seems that management is having different training in work ethics and work conducts than engineering or something is broken in the system.

    Advice to Management

    Replace those who should be retired 10 years already and monitor managers performance (not lower level employee). Wrong business decisions are not fault of engineers, workers or other employees that are reporting to management. You may want install video cameras in the managers offices.
