    I have been working at Emerson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent world-wide market served in controls and sensors, considered highest quality and reliability by customers. Large established customer base. Business units seem to be run conservatively, making financial numbers and without large swings in workforce. Seem to be gaining market share. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Currently in a down market since some business is sensitive to crude oil prices. Customers (large automation facilities, like oil wells and refineries) move slowly over decades, so using latest technology that is not well proven is not a high priority.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going, keep company quality and reputation high.

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

    Pros

    By far, the benefits they offer. Profit sharing is a beautiful resource they offer.

    Cons

    The pay is low. Technically, anyone working in the plant, can make more than their supervisors and Engineers starting at base salary.

    Advice to Management

    Hold all employees to the same standards. By far, salary employees are treated better, and are not micro managed when it comes to being on time, or taking lunch breaks.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance is fine, as people don't really care there

    Cons

    Management makes promises to keep or hire employees, even in written offers, and then don't fulfill them. It's not one case, it's pervasive in the company. It's their policy.

    Advice to Management

    The moral values of the company are pretty low, so a deep change will happen only if that happens, which is very unlikely. Results have been horrible, not surprisingly, so the company should be sold soon.
