Credit and Contract Department Operations Manager (Former Employee), Westerville, OH – December 16, 2014
Pros: company events, free lunches, travel
Cons: advancement opportunities were limited and felt unappreciated despite success
The challenge was keeping up with the departmental changes, while maintaining success at aggressive past due collections goals and meeting Days Outstanding targets. I was the 'go to' person and handling the volume of requests for assistance was very challenging too.

Good place to work, decent pay and great environment. Hours are not that bad either. Pay is not based on production so not a real sweat shop. People are friendly and has an older adult culture. Ive seen plenty of employees come here and retire.

Pros: large organization, global recognition
Cons: too many managers/layers, awful communication, good old boys network
Emerson has so many arms and so many different divisions, it can be hard to keep everything straight. They grow primarily through acquisition so just be sure you are always on the leading edge of what they are focusing on and be sure you can attribute your contributions to quantifiable data and sing your own praises since your manager doesn't always – more... have the opportunity. – less
