Manager (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – October 4, 2016
Management willfully ignores anything that will threaten their cushy standing in leadership. They will therefore expel any challengers to their narratives, then hire yes-men to follow direct orders without any push-back.

Job Work/Life Balance
Emerson Climate Technologies
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Ava, MO – February 26, 2016
Typical day was pretty good, worked with a lot of good people and had good management for the most part. Co-workers were amazing, hardest part of the job was always being passed over for things that I deserved, the most enjoyable part of the job were the friendships I created. Management seemed to care about their employees, and when their employees did well they took them out for pizza (or breakfast if they worked third shift). Benefits were good and there was plenty of a chance for advancement.
Assembler II (Former Employee) – Worthington, OH – March 28, 2016
Dirty, usually too hot environment. Unsafe and dismal. Only 20 minutes for lunch, barely time to eat, bathroom, and don't be a minute late getting back to your station. Overtime was required almost every weekend, and holiday. Forget about family time...by the time you get home, you're too exhausted to bother doing much except showering and going to bed! I finally left, got tired of feeling like a caged hamster on a wheel.
Decent pay and benefits
Short breaks, uncaring management, dismal conditions
Engineer (Current Employee) – Binghamton, NY – January 21, 2016
If you need a job it is an OK company to work for. The benefits are average. If you are in sales or marketing you will probably have a growth path. If you are in engineering you will be lucky to get a 2% increase annually, good performance or bad everyone gets the same %. I have been here 10 years and the only announced promotion in engineering was after the EE notified them he had another offer. The EE left anyway because recognized that is the Emerson game and he would not see another promotion.
They are closing this office and moving Engineering to Florida because our profits are down, like most US companies. The Florida group has a better sales organization but is much weaker in Engineering. So they close Engineering and promote the sales people.
Field Engineer (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 5, 2016
At any time you may receive a call to go anywhere in Emerson's territory, which for me is anywhere in the US and parts of Canada. If you're not on the road, you're expected to be working in the labs on the main product, Ovation. That sounds great on paper until it comes time to log your hours for the week, when you'll file everything under the project you're working on then be told not to charge that project. Or sometimes you work on tasks that have no charge number, and they'll tell you to use some random number, or worse, they'll send you on a wild goose chase to justify your activities. There is a very unprofessional in-fighting which goes on between departments, and field engineers often get caught in the middle of that because we work on a variety of projects. People that have been with the company for a long time will say "Don't ever make plans", which when translated means 'the job is your life'. That won't bother you if you're a loner with few friends/family/relationship ties. If you have a question in the field which requires more expert advice, prepare to deal with an angered expert for merely asking your question. The office politics reflect badly on management, and that's only going to get worse given that a manager has just quit. I worked for a manager who had no idea what I did when I was in the field, because this person was familiar only with Emerson's main product.
Angry people, in-fighting, poor management of dept
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Ocala, FL – September 8, 2016
it's a very fast pace work environment, which I like cause I wont get bored. I have the learned the importance of knowing what's going on around you at all times to create a safer work environment. Most of the co workers are pleasant to be around, but I found that a few don't seem to like when new hires come in. They were not very polite and some even talk to you as if your stupid and beneath them. I don't believe that is exercising professional work ethics and it bothered me a lot. The hardest part of the job I would say is taking in others personalities and hang ups and dealing with a very demanding work schedule especially for those who are single parents and have to work around two schedules one for their child care and for the companies schedules. The most enjoyable part for me is knowing I created something and I was part of a team.
sufficiant breaks, good managment
flexible work hours for those who have child care issues

Emerson Climate Technologies is a good place to work. For the area, the wages and benefits are competitive. Depending on the department you work in, or the tasks you are assigned, the work can either be easy or very demanding.
GPW (Former Employee) – Grantsville, MD – March 16, 2016
College, and degrees mean nothing in this place. It's a back rubbing, pick your friends wisely place. I learned a lot about the lean system, how manufacturing is not supposed to be ran etc. The upper management team has no clue what they're doing and running Grantsville Closetmaid into the ground. The supervisor staff is very friendly with only two guys that honestly know more than anyone else in the front office. I do not recommend working there if you're looking to advance. If you're looking to glide by then this is the place for you.
Billing And Shipping Clerk (Current Employee) – Belle Vernon, PA – December 11, 2015
this company expects that you will make them your life. they mandate overtime all the time and expect that you will just drop everything else in your life to work.... most of the people there are great though
bad benefits, mandated overtime without regard to employees having lives or households to maintain
Picker/Packer (Former Employee) – Chester, VA – September 1, 2016
The items be place on the packer station to be pack. Once the packer receive the customer items. The packer have to make a box that fit all the customer orders in. Then place a protection shield to keep the customer items in place and safe in the box.
A picker goes out and get the customer items and place it in the white, yellow, blue, or red tote. Then give to the packer to be pack and shipped out.
If you make high in your production and rate, Emerson will give everybody a free luch meal.
If behind, we'll have no first 15 minute break. Just keep pushing until we get caught up.
SPECIALIST (Current Employee) – Westerville, OH – November 27, 2015
Emerson is a great company to work for with full benefits, wonderful people, management appreciates everyone. If you are looking for a worldwide company that is on the leading edge of technology Emerson Network Power is the one.
ICSS E & I Lead Engineer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 20, 2016
typical day at work usually requires a lot of interfacing with the project team, and with the customer & client as needed; it has been a great learning experience; project management is pretty complex; hardest part was to keep up with multiple IFC revision of customer design inputs; the most enjoyable part of the job was every time we reached an important milestone, it was kind of a great satisfaction to get the job done, and move forward to the next challenge.
Set-up Operator (Current Employee) – Rushville, IN – November 17, 2015
Slow seasons and layoffs are common, management is goof though and quality is very dependable .The company is an older type of traditional company . The company is transitioning over to lean processes .

I worked for a business unit of Emerson Electric Co. for about 3.5 years. The corporate staff was extremely friendly and helpful during the early stages after our company was acquired. I met and worked under an individual who turned out to be the best boss I've ever had. There were definitely some growing pains experienced due to the acquisition, but overall, it was OK.
Friendly and helpful co-workers at the corporate level
Machining Manager (Former Employee) – Marshalltown, IA – May 18, 2016
Fast paced work days. Held meetings with regards to work-load, scrap/rework reduction. Learned many skills regarding scrap/rework reductions. It was tough to know what Management expected, the co-workers and Direct Manager made experiences enjoyable. The hardest part of the job was training new hourly Employees when your diligence was needed for daily production activities. The most enjoyable was seeing units shipping to Customers after overcoming obstacles.
Overall a fast paced enjoyable experience.
Flexible work hours for personal needs, such as Doctor appts. etc
Held accountable if they believed you were not holding proper accountability
A company that is looking to grow. It is a traditional industrial manufacturing company culture, meaning it is not very progressive compared to many technology firms. The people are genuine and are good to work with. One of the hardest things about the job is the lack of ability to make decisions. Most decisions are made by the management staff. Very few decisions are allowed to be pushed down into the organization.
good people to work with
lack of ability to make decisons for the products you manage
The view of this company depends entirely on which location you are talking about. Their location in Knoxville is pretty much OK, very focused on the bottom line / recent sales, and they are not hesitant to let people go if required. But in general you could do much worse than work for them. Atmosphere is fairly relaxed. Benefits = average. If interested, it's worth your time to at least interview with them.
