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

    Pros

    Great work life balance. They work around your schedule if you have other priorities like family.

    Cons

    No more 401K matching at Daniel. No 9/80's and horrible health insurance. You are not asked anything about your department. HR and Senior Management runs the show. HR for Daniel Flow cannot be trusted and protects their drinking buddies at all expense. No growth. Ask employees to take surveys and does nothing about it.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your employees and change the HR team so that they are fair for all. Stop making excuses for your management team.

    Pros

    Generally good place to work with good people.

    Cons

    Questionable decisions about investments from top management. Often see Senior managers who travel with large entourage coming to locations and not adding any value to their visit. Pay could be better, that comes up often ( even on here) and I never see that addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Look at investments that make the ability to produce at a better cost, not so much on offices and meetings. Do you really need so many people flying all over the world for meetings?

    I have been working at Emerson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a recession resistant industry. If times are good companies buy new equipment. If times are bad companies will buy service contracts.

    Cons

    Company allowed manning to fall below the current employees' ability to meet contractual obligations. The result is poor quality of life for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do not allow manning to fall so low.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay and variety of work for technicians.

    Cons

    No training. Senior technicians have minimal skills to keep their jobs, and make sure that any new employee is kept from being a challenge to their laziness by not training. I'll write it again - NO TRAINING.

    Advice to Management

    Take your job seriously, try to take care of all your employees. When new employees come to you, and say that are not receiving job training, correct that issue. This will require you to take responsibility, and get over your fear of confronting your senior technicians.
