    Pros

    Salary is above average compared to competitors

    Cons

    The job you've applied for is different with the actual JOB you do.
    Toxic work that always requires additional work time yet OT is still being questioned when applied
    What managers say in the email is different with what they do/say
    Managers don't even have proper communication with each other
    Managers appraise your work on a band of 5 numbers with 3 having an unusual wide range of a not so good performance to high performance
    No equal opportunities on site projects

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the local management!

    Pros

    Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    I have heard the Corporate location is a great place to work. I work at one of the business units in Texas who is owned by Emerson. If you are not in the good ole boy system, you will not get promoted or have the support you need to do your job. This includes the HR team who are not fair and is part of the good ole boy system. When HR was directly asked about the good ole boy system they got defensive and stated to never say those words again. They are part of it and they are notorious for making good employees leave the company. They hide a lot of info from Corporate.
