    I worked at Emerson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have decent pay and average benefits. They have a good working environment with mostly good people. They have average managers.

    Cons

    They look more for 4 year degrees rather than work experience or knowledge. They have to many managers and not enough workers.

    Advice to Management

    Look at candidates that have experience and not just degrees.

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

    Pros

    This is a review of the Sunrise office before Emerson Network Power acquisition by Platinum Capital and its re-branding as Vertiv.

    The Sunrise office has a good management team. Benefits are decent, better than most places and there is emphasis on hiring permanent employees rather than being a cattle ranch with contractors coming in and out.

    There is new development as well as old/legacy development.

    Career opportunities exist for people who want to pursue them. You get what you put in.

    Cons

    Work on legacy systems could feel a bit overwhelming. No clear vision when under the Emerson umbrella. Whatever problems exist, I think they came from Emerson's upper-upper management. No complains about the Sunrise office.

    Pros

    Values high education (especially MBAs), values hard work, invests in training, global opportunities, etc. Overall an OK place to work, but not a great place.

    Cons

    Culture has fostered some poor leadership, locations are not very desirable, massive layoffs have led to chaotic management procedures (I e never seen a matrix organization like this). Sub-par benefits (both health and retirement)
