    Emerson is a stable company with many different divisions. If you are a performer you will have opportunities to move with in the different companies and grow.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility. The members of management and programmers that have been machinist in the past, rather then hired out of school, really make things move more smoothly and have endless amounts of knowledge. Emerson would rather you take your time to make sure these high dollar, tight tolerance parts are perfect then to have you pump out part after part as if you're on an assembly line.

    Cons

    Union causes issues with allowing good workers the reward of moving up. Safety team seems to have too much influence on management for tgis that are not an issue, yet turn a blind eye to things that need to be taken care of.

    Advice to Management

    Refer to pro's and con's.
