    Pros

    They allow alot of freedom to take control of your business and along with that comes full accountability. Emerson is financially strong and can offer alot of room for growth if you play the politics correct.

    Cons

    Lack of resources in the US to support much of the business as more roles get moved overseas. No structured sales training for the company which results in a disconnect from sales initiatives and what the supporting teams are focused on.

    Advice to Management

    There is alot of room for advancement within Emerson and many managers spend more time trying to climb the ladder than focus on developing their team and building strong relationships with customers.


  2. "The company seems to have a lot of issues since Emerson (parent company) bought them a few years ago."

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    After doing a good job I would hear from several people about their satisfaction with my work. There are plenty of people willing to hand over work if you are willing to find them.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem concerned about the employees very much just budgets and sticking to them. When it comes to defending or fighting for an employee they are lacking.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if you were honest with employees instead of shocking people with new decisions. No one seems to communicate enough to make for a smooth working environment.
