No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Low stress a relatively good benefits. Overall fairly supportive management if you don't rock the boat with improvement ideas of your own. Go to work there if you want to cruise into retirement or want to learn how US management used to operate before lean principles were adapted and design was done in 2D.

Cons

Very poor compensation. 1980 technology and management philosophy.

Advice to Management

Emerson could make even more money if they adopted latest improvement technologies and actually used 3D modeling tools. Upper management has no clue as to the money that is wasted that could go to the bottom line. Stop being so cheap and pay for employees who will get the company to the next level.

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

    Pros

    Excellent Team Environment. In small groups this company works well. The hours are not overly demanding (very rare 10-12 hour work day).

    Cons

    Some of the technology is older and needs upgrade. This can be a Pro if you are the one doing the upgrades, but I see it as a con if you want to stay on the leading edge of tech.

    Advice to Management

    At some point the various companies will need to come together and move as a larger team - rather than as a collection of small companies. This is going to require a firm leadership hand - in order to overcome the strong individualized companies.
