    Profit making company with professional top management

    Difficult company for new entrants as most of people at factory level are too unprofessional and resisting to new entrant in organisation, hate mongers. Be cautious can lead to carrier turmoil.

    Advice to Management

    Practice ethics written in books at working level.

    It was a good starting experience, but it's important for what business unit you are working

    Pros

    -Very friendly atmosphere, even though there was a lot of work to do
    -Great colleagues that were always open to help you
    -The company is willing to invest in you and your preparation by sending you abroad in order to understand better the business (for those working remote)
    -The top management people I've met are very qualitative (those that are in charge of an area or are VPs), some of them showing even leadership, not just management
    -Good company where you can start your career
    -Good salaries for entry level positions and good benefits

    Cons

    -some things are going with the flow and sometimes I felt that ENP is years behind EPM or other platforms and I felt such a huge difference when I asked people who were working for other platforms ...
    -Feedback received late (actually it became irrelevant after 1 month or 2 months), some higher managers do not know how to give feedback, how to express themselves and they are willing just to throw some words without thinking that it's useless and that they can harm
    -As entry level person, some things were said in your face and others by behind which is not healthy and you cannot develop yourself + lots of frustrations
    -Way too long time for some processes, people were giving up (when talking about recruitment for example) and sometimes even for other processes you were waiting 1 month in order to receive some approvals
    -Some tasks were given in such short time that sometimes you had a lot of work to do in just 1 hour

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect people to be experts in 1 month in 2 or 3 different areas, if we are talking about entry level positions, especially more difficult ones.
    -Make less general job descriptions, because when you get there you realize it was not what you were expecting
    -Check why there are a lot of people leaving and resigning, because it's not effective to have 5 people in 2 years for the same position (when we are talking that it's just 1 position open for that specific job)
    -Make more attractive hiring announcements, if it weren't for a friend, I would have passed by the one I applied for

    Pros

    I come here at work and feel like at home cause there's a harmonious working relationship in the office that makes work easy to bear amidst all the deadlines and gruelling work.

    Cons

    When you're doing a project, be able to set aside your social activities for the meantime as you will be bombarded with a lot of workload.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the salary and compensation of the employees to reduce attrition rate.

    Pros

    9/80 and those in non-management positions are always looking to do the right thing and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Decisions come from VP's only and VP's are rarely on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, give them the tools to do the job and let them take responsibility.

    Pros

    High level managers compensated well

    Cons

    Outsourcing jobs is the golden rule for Emerson. Most employees work in fear of losing their jobs, and many have been forced to train their foreign replacements or lose severance pay.
    Emerson is headquartered in Ferguson Missouri, and have outsourced so many jobs, it helped create the current jobless, low income environment in that region.
    Pay is much lower than market. Promotions mostly go to managers and supervisors.
    Managers, VP's and HR managers abuse power, and routinely retaliate if any employee challenges them.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are the ones doing the work, treat them fairly.
