    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.

    Willing to offer challenges to those who are looking for it. They care about their employees with things like a free gym, ergonomic accommodations and flexible scheduling

    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?

    "Emerson Automation Solutions"

    Pros

    In general, the people are nice and good to work with, though sometimes stuck in their ways.

    Cons

    For being an Austin-based tech company, Emerson has some catching up to do in terms of culture. Values tend to be old-fashioned and conservative, which is good in some ways, but a challenge in others, especially to younger folks.

    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.
