    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.

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Good Benefits, Stability. People that I work with are professional and intelligent. Many people have left or retired and that has brought in fresh blood which has been a major improvement.

    Cons

    Good ole boys club. Retiring management should have no say in who their replacement will be. Very few women or minorities in upper management. Performance Reviews are substandard.
