    Pros

    Low risk environment; also translates into low innovation quotient.

    Cons

    You get promoted (and get anything beyond inflation adjustment) mostly by being there long enough. Outside and new blood only comes in when an acquisition occurs.

    Advice to Management

    As the world gets flatter, Emerson will be better off with more performance based compensation. The current stats (especially at divisions) will show you an almost 1-1 correlation of compensation to seniority. I also belive that for long Emerson traded stability for compensation - the mid-management is begining to fill up with mediocrity. This has served the operational philosophy well for decades but may prove costly over the next few.
