    I worked at Emerson part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Taking quizzes to advance to next level is really useful and helpful at my production floor(DP Level). As a student, this is a great way to know how the modules work and if you willing to know more, you get to know how the electrical and mechanical components in the modules functions.

    Cons

    I don't think I experienced any downsides at Emerson Process Manangement.

    Advice to Management

    I know that Emerson Process Management is expanding their business to Chaska MN which in fact is a great news for the whole company and the workers. From what I heard, the company will be cutting off Weekend shifts which I think isn't a good idea. I was working in a weekend shift at Emerson located in Chanhassan and our achievements was highly appreciated by the stuff. Weekend Shift was on top of everything in terms of safety, getting work done and customer satisfactory. Great thanks goes to my highly trained supervisors Abdi Ahmed and Chris K. at DP Level for making this possible.

    Pros

    Emerson offers many desirable benefits. They have a strong profit sharing program, as well as affordable insurance plans. They also have flex-time, which allows you incorporate your career into your life. They have many employees who have been there for 20+ years, as well as a strong base of young professionals.

    Cons

    Emerson Process is a company that thrives on delivering a high quality product to its customer every time. If you are a person who doesn't have a strong eye for quality and the ability to "roll up your sleeves", this job is not for you.

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

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, potential to move within the organization to other companies in the portfolio, training opportunities. If you make smart choices you could spend your entire career in this company. Emerson has a portfolio of companies and the span the globe. Within my division alone was Intermetro Industries, Ridge Tool, Closet Maid, Insinkerator and there are Emerson climate tech, and others.

    Cons

    I was laid off when the company moved work to PA and I didnt want to move. They were generous with my severance package, but I was a manager. I don't think the workers fared as well.

    Pros

    Lots going on with the oil and gas boom. This is a global company with a lot of opportunity to grow. This is a stable company with a long term future.
