Pros

Great technology and products. Low churn rate. Co-worker knowledge and teamwork is great due to so many old timer 20-30 year employees.

Cons

Not much movement, since no-one leaves. Pay is low. Smart ambitious people cannot get ahead. Your promotions and authority are determined by with which site you are in, rather than your skills.

Advice to Management

I think they are doing a great job of getting the most out of people for the least amount of pay. From that perspective, they are doing great. I own enough stock so I benefit from both sides.

    Pros

    Emerson is a large company with many divisions -- this provides numerous opportunities for growth and advancement. Embedded Computing provided wonderful support for work/life balance and fairness to employees regarding personal situations.

    Cons

    Embedded Computing is a contracting market. Senior leadership is in turmoil and jobs are being shed around the world. The only locations hiring are in Asia (low cost). If you are in Asia, there are lots of opportunities. Anywhere else, enter a market other than embedded computing due to lack of jobs and stability. The customer base is mainly telecom and company performance fluctuates with the market.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the focus of Network Power. Some of the divisions within Network Power are performing and have stable leadership. Embedded Computing is not one of those divisions.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Work schedule, don't have to commute at rush hour. Many opportunities are available for those who can break through the barriers of the old department managers.

    Cons

    Outdated manufacturing philosophy in this facility. Lack of standardized procedures and practices, it appears there are changes on the horizon. Could be an uncomfortable working environment as some of the old dogs try to learn new tricks.

    Advice to Management

    Train the management and the employees on how they can best serve the company in their respective positions. The people closest to the job know what the problems are and frequently have the solutions but no way to effectively bring about change.

    With regards to how Rob Clements is leading ClosetMaid, I have not formed an opinion one way or another. I don't know what type of goals and objectives he has set for the company or what he is trying to do.
