    Former Employee - Corporate IT in Saint Louis, MO (US)
    Former Employee - Corporate IT in Saint Louis, MO (US)

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

    Pros

    I gained corporate experience at a large, international company. Emerson never changes, which is a con to me, but a pro to others. They have a gym with a free personal trainer and classes, which was literally the best part about going to work.

    Cons

    Sexual harassment from men. Very closed-minded to new ideas. Political. Very black & white, and most employees are "robotic." I learned that the only reason why most people stay there is because it's comfortable/safe, not because they are passionate about what they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to new, innovative ideas.

    I have been working at Emerson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great pay for CNC machinist.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work everyday of your time. When you are at work you are expected to skip lunch and your breaks. Since the pay is based on production every time you stop the machine you lose money. Most people last about 4 years before they can't take it anymore and have to quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop sending manufacturing jobs overseas!

    Pros

    Overall very well managed company that is stable, promotes from within, had only 3 CEOs since 1956. Although a US based company, more sales outside US. Places ethics very high.

    Cons

    Divisions operate in silos. There is hardly any collaboration between them.

    Current Employee - Engineer
    Current Employee - Engineer

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

    Pros

    - Most of the managers / directors are highly skilled individuals who employees can look up to and be inspired by (I am proud to say that even after working for my manager for several years, my respect for him has continuously grown as he always finds new ways to impress me).

    - The company invests a lot into employee trainings and, being such a large and global organization, it also offers plenty of development options for driven and talented individuals.

    - Upper management is not only friendly but also sets clear goals and expectations so that people are constantly aware of what the overarching organizational goals are.

    - Ethics is truly a core value and I am pleased to say that this is one of the most fair and honest places I have ever worked.

    Cons

    Being such a large scale organization, change (at any level) is pretty slow. However, I believe this to be a CON for most large scale organizations - not just Emerson in particular.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should spend more time growing their people. This would ensure that people are constantly challenged and that they will be ready to take the next step in the organization when the time is right.

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

    Pros

    It's a relatively stable company if you are able to take the stodgy silo culture and strong matrix organizational structure.

    Cons

    Not the best onboarding and training program, and if you can't cut it, despite being ill-equipped, the company will kick you out the door very quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to train your new hires better, get them into the the thick of things more quickly so that they are practicing what they learn, and break down the agonizingly thick silo walls.
