    Pros

    Stable, big company, very formal, good benefits, strong financially.

    Cons

    If they ask you to travel, think twice. It may be a good or bad experience depending on where you are headed and on yourself. Emerson is a company for grown ups. The work is demanding mentally. Do yourself a favor and make sure you have the necessary knowledge for the job.

    Be more open and communicative.
