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

    It's a very relaxed atmosphere. It's family oriented even though it is a larger company. I believe it is a good, stable company that has decent security. The pension plan is pretty decent and the 401k is of. The 401k plan is a variable plan that is based on company performance. It ranges from 25-75%. Communications are quarterly and helpful to know the business climate.

    Cons

    No bonus structure for directors on down. They are very strict on giving out 3 weeks of vacation to new employees. They could do a better job in offering more vacation coming in the door. It takes 10 years to get to 3 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Bonus structure would help improve performance of employees...


  2. "Emerson Network Power is a viable division -- Embedded Computing is not."

    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.
