    I worked at Emerson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Handful of very smart people who run the company, work with these people and you're going to enjoy your time there.

    Cons

    The remaining 95% are either old, play politics or have been there for 25+ years. Its time to get some young people who you can nurture. HR department absolutely horrible with the exception of newer HR team.

    Advice to Management

    $ is the only way you can attract talent to a place like Ocala. Time to pay more, train, groom and nurture young talent. Promote from within.

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

    Pros

    Emerson has robust internal procedures, especially with regards to acquisitions. Impressive track record of successfully integrating acquired companies into the main Emerson business.

    Cons

    Despite the very unique collection of characters in senior management, Emerson favors the "Stepford employee" who does what they are told and do not have much in way of personality.

    Secondly, management watches their employees very closely and any supposedly suspicious behavior (eg. taking or making (very brief) calls in unused meeting rooms) - have led to the employee in question being accused of job-hunting. I have never seen such extreme, laughable paranoia on the part of senior management at any of my former workplaces. Emerson offices are open-concept and some employees have the decency not to subject their coworkers to the gruesome details of their / their children's medical or personal issues, hence their decision to make such calls in private.

    Advice to Management

    Thinly-veiled threats of kicking employees off the "high potential" list if they refuse to move every two years as decreed by management is the best way to lose your most talented pool of employees. Don't just pay lip service to "work-life balance" and then expect employees to uproot their families and move in the interest of "career development" every 24 months.

    Also, learn to respect employees' choices where their personal life is concerned - I have heard stories about how women who are divorced or have chosen not to marry (for various reasons) are called names and insulted by senior management. Ironically, no one questions or makes fun of the single / divorced men. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen.
