Not as cool as you thinkJan 4, 2021 - Manager Level in Saint Louis, MORecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Global Experience. They are Everywhere and quite important considering what they design, make, and do. They are a formidable company. The people running the various departments and product are awesome (This is not senior management per se)
Emerson as whole is very decentralized and scattered around the world, which is frustrating and confusing. For example they have 6 separate office locations in Houston. Technically on paper, St. Louis is the headquarters but parts of the business are ran from several locations (Minnesota , Austin, Colorado, etc.) on the automation solutions side of the business . Lately they have had the business model of acquiring companies and selling divisions off to make money. Every 3 years they run into layoffs because they are at the mercy of global markets and are over leveraged to oil and gas industry, which have seen prices tanking since 2008. They are very top heavy with layers of senior management, and tend to first focus on the finances first and accounting second. The funny part is there is so much extra fat still. The company is slow to move, usually 5 years behind on things. For example in 2020 they just started realizing they had data from all their equipment coming off sensors that they could run analytics and provide services to customers as a value add. This company can design and invent new things from an engineer standpoint, but it is not a pioneer in business, it is a close follower. It disrupts by acquiring or jumping into different markets after they have shown promise and using its power to hit the ground running much Like AB-INBev is today in the beer industry.Continue reading

Very Old way of thinking companyMar 28, 2021 - Supplier Performance Engineer in Shakopee, MNRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
There is somewhat job security. You don't have to be very intelligent to work here
The company does not make any innovative product. I do not think the entire company has competent engineers that can make a product for the modern world. It exists solely for oil and gas company which does not want to change. More importantly you will feel ashamed to call yourself an engineer if you work as a Supplier Performance "Engineer"Continue reading

Outside Sales - RosemountJul 31, 2016 - Senior Sales Engineer in Flower Mound, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Emerson is a great company that is very well led from an upper management position. Emerson very much encourages employees getting experience at different jobs in different areas or business units. Profit Sharing plan is second to non IMO, and benefits are on par with other major companies. Comp plans are good when business is good. Employee Perks Plan for Outside sales are awesome.
the Comp plans for outside sales are based on a sales goal which is set solely based on last years sales numbers. So if you have a great year and make 150%. that 150% is your goal for the following. It's very difficult to sometimes even make your goal after a big year. Sometimes it can feel that you are being punished for having too strong of year. Some of the Local business partners have too much power and can end up undercutting you're sales (it happens rarely, but it happens and it's unacceptable) Very Leveraged on Oil and Gas. if Oil is Up, business is great, if oil is down Business is not great.Continue reading
