Entry levels for short term are not bad. However, any climbing reveals how toxic the management really is. Good ole boy club where only friends get promoted and people who are under qualified get the best jobs based on who they know.
Pros
Timed Breaks, Acceptable pay
Cons
Short breaks, Management Immaturity, Point Based System

No comment , it speaks for itself. Many people were fired and transferred after I left. It is sad to lose good employees because of bad management.
Always seems things have to go down all the way before anything is done.

Nothing proactive was ever done. Things just took care of itself and drug out way longer than it should have.

The cowards that could have made a difference were all scared to lose there jobs.
Pros
Definitely was qualified and was self motivated.
Cons
A handful of workers and managers (3) with no backbone.

I learned a lot working here. Work hours are good, work life balance is good. Hardest part of the job is having no stability because of the oil industry.

It's a fun and okay environment. Some people are just very nosey and likes to get into your life when you're just there to mind your own business. Some intentionally gets you in trouble with your leads for no reason. Long story short, work is fine. People aren't as much.

Hard work but great place to work and if I didn’t move then I would still be working there. It accommodates your personal very well. I would tell people to work there

I worked at Emerson for about 3 years. My direct manager ( VP level) was a terrible and unpredictable person. He did a lot of verbal and psychological harassment on me and he didn’t respect the people and specially me and a few other new hires. There were a lot of politics in the company and it seems that it is a routine in the company ( at least in Sidney location) that they verbally harass people in the meetings and make some employees uncomfortable. The don’t care about the real work that much and they only care about who knows who and who has a relationship with who.
Executive and VP level Management team is very weak and confused and they don’t have any vision for the future. They don’t have enough technical experience in their past works to be able to communicate effectively with their technical and engineering team. They don’t let people to talk in the meetings and just want to have monologue and impose their authority. The environment is like army and military services!

Also the diversity is not appreciated at all in the company and many International employee including myself are being hurt verbally and by their inappropriate attitude.

Also very weak communication between management and the direct reports and you usually need to guess what to do and what not to do and eventually bring blamed with your actions.

There are some good colleagues in the company who are usually in the technical level, not in the managerial level and many of them didn’t have any chance to grow internally or being demoted.

Overall, a terrible company, with a terrible culture, location and
 - more...
Pros
Maybe you find some good technical colleagues
Cons
Weak Executive and VP level management, bad culture, low pay and not international friendly

This company is perpetually 20 years behind, thinks that customers won't mind bad pricing and service since they are often category leaders. Works well if you are a lifer or a chosen one. Do yourself a favor and get out now or don't join.

A lot of really good people work their but management is far less than acceptable.

The honeymoon period of getting hired is short lived then the reality of poor management sets in.


All talk and tenured protectionism makes personal growth a check box review.
Pros
Not many if any.
Cons
Too political and current management is beyond repair.
