I have been working at Emerson full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Global interaction, diverse areas to explore, numerous work opportunities, important and significant projects that, if done well, will be received with great attention.

Cons

Company values worth more on the degree and university attended, not by hard work and ability to learn quickly. Women have to be tough to be taken seriously: ratio is about 1 woman to about every 50 men.

Advice to Management

Believe in your employees and encourage them to succeed and you'll be rewarded for it. Every manager should have to read "How to Win Friends and Influence People" by Dale Carnegie. Repeatedly involve your employees in meetings and learning opportunities.

    "Emerson pretends to an innovative company, until real innovation threatens one of the larger divisions."

    Pros

    It is a financially sound company, which is very important. If they stick to their core values, they will be around for a very long time. Emerson is probably a better company to invest in than work for.

    Cons

    Below average compensation.

    The corporate culture makes it very hard to solve problems, because the problem solving process has become more important than solving the problem itself.

    Although Emerson Process Management touts itself as an innovator, you'd better make sure your innovation doesn't make one of the big divisions (PSS, Rosemount, or Regulators) look bad, because your innovation will be killed.

    Emerson Process Management also has a reputation for being very arrogant, especially outside of the U.S. Emerson seems to have the opinion that customers will buy what we tell them, because we know what's best.

    It was announced just recently that Emerson Process Management was going to start talking to customers before developing new products. How innovative. How fresh.

    Advice to Management

    Keep managing the company financially the way you have been for the last 100+ years. You are doing a great job. Realize, however, that to develop truly innovative products and services requires an open mindset that just does not exist in the organization.
