I worked at Emerson full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

great place to work straight out of college. gained valuable experience, and had great role models. still keep in touch with those ex coworkers

Cons

down sizing, cost cutting, lay offs, Great Job till they started to make cuts and lay off sales force bc of changes with HD (customer). balance of role with customer to keep sales force on

Advice to Management

pay based on experience, and reward those who go the extra mile

    I have been working at Emerson as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    In the past, there was lots of freedom to do whatever was needed to get the projects working. This meant if you were good, you had the freedom to use almost any tool or design you thought would help.

    Cons

    Software development is not a priority for the company. They were inadequately staffed and are starting to use more heavy weight (waterfall) processes.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some good software people. Adopt some accepted software development processes.

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

    Pros

    Stable because he product sells itself. Is only good for Emerson and other stake holders.

    Cons

    If you want to earn under $100k for the rest of your life. This is the place for you.

    If you like to pat yourself on the back for being part of a non-cutting edge organization, this place is for you.

    The company is full of non-driven employees who settle and have low expectations of their career.

    Low pay. Poor raises. This company doesn't value previous experience. They look for individuals in a jam and paint a completely different picture for future advancement than reality to get them to take the position. Then once the employee has realized the realities of the company, they can't just quit because they look like a job-hopper. Also, no marketable skills are built so good luck finding another job. This place is a trap!

    They have managers with only associate degrees over individuals with vastly superior degrees and abilities. Getting anywhere there is more about ass kissing and time there than ability and achievements.

    Extremely poor pay that they think is extremely great. No clue how these guys live in Boulder on this pay.

    This isn't a true sales position. Poor place to work.

    No 401k match. No stock options.

    Save yourself and stay away!!

    Incompetent HR staff.

    Advice to Management

    Try being truthful. Recognize individual's previous experience and don't mislead them.

    Offer commission that incentivizes and rewards. A $10k center point that rewards only $5k for hitting 110% to goal is barely an incentive.
