    I worked at Emerson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable pay and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Unreasonably demanding and plays favorites with suck-ups. Middle managers are the worst. Managers have very little interaction with their employees and still tend to give horrible performance reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well.

    Pros

    Can be a good place to start your career, but long term you will stagnate and can do better elsewhere. Good for people not looking to advance

    Cons

    Company policy is all from the 1900s. Time served is more important that performance. Lots of money is wasted on petty things

    Advice to Management

    Company shows it's age

    Pros

    Very friendly people. Can be very flexible with hours especially which was super nice for college students.

    We all worked in on open space, which could make it hard to concentrate if someone else was being loud for whatever reason.

    "Great Profit Sharing, Painful Layoffs"

    I worked at Emerson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Profit sharing is nice and you get full money after 5 years if you last that long without being laid off. In the good years it cna be 15% of pay. Somewhat flexable with schedule.

    Cons

    No 401k match but profit sharing. Temporary workers recieve no benefits. Pay is barely at market rates. Lots of internal politics and favoritism within management. Outsource work to 3rd world countries such as Costa Rica and the Phillipines while laying off people in the U.S.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay to match market. Manage staff, provide coaching and reward loyalty to the company. Layoff temporary or low wage workers before laying off loyal staff.
