Pros

Large global organization with many dimensions and a lot of talented people.

Cons

Since it's such a large organization that's grown through many acquisitions it's very fragmented. Can be very challenging to work with all the division's in productive manner. Very few people are aware all the organizations capablities.

Advice to Management

Recommend restructuring and consolidating sales force. Look into acquiring LBP and or letting qualified LBP's absorb direct channel. Some divisions (e.g. Fisher) have too much imbreeding, reccommend more cross divisional training/pollenation is neeeded (GE has a good model). Very few people are aware entire orgnanizations capabilites. Reccemond nominating local Account Lead's for large key and strategic accounts so there is a well coordintated effort that has a higher return for both the customer and Emerson and allows for better penetration of account.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The company is often located in some nice areas, although that of course depends on exactly where you work. Emerson is a big, international company, so there will be opportunities for advancement across the company if you pursue them hard enough. Emerson is a very stable company and in general conservative, so you probably don't have to worry about volatility in the market nearly as much.

    Cons

    The pay seems to be at the low end of the range for companies in general. I think you end up trading stability for compensation. As a consequence, Emerson doesn't attract the cream of the crop in terms of employees. That doesn't mean some great people don't work at Emerson, but it's a consideration. The product lines also aren't that exciting. In this case, you trade stability for excitement.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the decisions related to the direction of the company seem to be short-sighted.

    Pros

    Emerson is an organization full of opportunities for growth especially for people with backgrounds in engineering or science. Co-workers are congenial and opportunities abound at headquarters and the various divisions. Most employees are welcoming and willing to share their experiences and offer advice to new employees. Work-life balance has never been a problem. Most divisions are willing to work around family obligations so that employees can maintain a good balance between the office an home.

    Cons

    Emerson is a very conservative, process oriented organization. If you are looking for innovation and flexibility, this might not be the best place for you. It is sometimes difficult to navigate the matrixed nature of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
