    Pros

    Great promotion potential. Work-life balance is great. Pay is great. There are many tenured employees -- people stay here for a long time. It is a great company to work for and the culture is fun. People seem to genuinely enjoy working here.

    Cons

    Emerson is spread out all over the world. Many of the promotion opportunities require a move -- this may be not be ideal for some people.

    Pros

    Salary is competive for the role, as well as decent benefits. Vacation, Insurance, etc are competitive with the industry. Safety is a very high priority and management has your back.

    Cons

    Not really too many cons. It is a big corporation so flexibility at times is limited on their end. Also outsource quite a bit of work to low cost countries.

    Pros

    Emerson Electric Corporation invests in their employees. I have been able to experience many parts of a business. I have learned what it takes to manage a business in a highly successful corporation.

    Cons

    Detailed reporting and planning does become time consuming. I question the benefit to the corporation vs. the cost on the division.

    Advice to Management

    Emerson Electric Corporation has a best-in-class business planning process. I would suggest that this process be scale-able. Larger divisions should complete the planning process as currently designed. Smaller divisions would still participate in the process but have fewer requirements. Smaller divisions would still benefit from the process without investing as much time as larger divisions. Understanding the waterfall process, it is difficult to select which exhibits to scale back on. One simple way to impact effort would be to limit the slide count based on annual sales.

    I worked at Emerson full-time

    Pros

    This is my first company and I am so proud to be part of it for more than four years. It respects each and every employee and encourages employees to be more innovative.

    Cons

    Company can be a little flexible like providing work from home option. Also they do not encourage employees to shift from one team to another team.

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

    Pros

    The management team is smart, honest, humble and stable. The stability allows the company to develop and follow management processes developed over decades to drive business results. Career development opportunities exceed the supply so anyone with the skill, ability and attitude has many opportunities to advance rapidly through the ranks, if that is your goal.

    Cons

    The size of the company can make it slow. Approval levels can slow down the pace of change and can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the business leaders you trust to have more autonomy to run their businesses.

    One of the negative things for me was the distance and how far I had to drive.
