Approves of CEO

I have been working at Emerson full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Well Run
- Well Managed
- High Emphasis on meeting financial goals
- Treats employees with respect

Cons

- Will not take radical decisions, avoids risks of any sort and i think therefore misses out of many opportunites
- despite being a global company, its quite hard to move or know about opportunities elsewhere unless you know someone who knows of those opportunities.

Advice to Management

- figure out how to be a more nimble company even as the size grows bigger

    Read the company surveys and understand what is being said....ie...take the feedback and use it to improve the operation!!

    I have been working at Emerson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work-environment generally, nice company to lie low, do your work and get on with life. financially well-managed, so you can think of staying until you retire. There are growth opportunities, if you are smart and/or have a sponsor in higher management.

    Cons

    If you are ambitious but don't have a sponsor, you will get frustrated. Difficult to make your mark if you are not in sales or marketing. Salary is below average.

    Advice to Management

    Look into different functions for talent, your problems today can't be solved by good salespeople or marketers. Salaries are also a motivational tool, and that is not true only for executive management.
