Does this mean that we will have employees leaving Emerson to join the new company? Are layoffs coming for those of us that are staying put?
I don't have much time left until retirement, but at Emerson it's not certain that you won't be cut even when you're very close to retirement. There have been many such cases. How close to retirement would you stay here, and how worth is it looking... — read more
Those who can't are screwed. Emerson is not going to improve any time soon.
Only those who do not think long-term can have such opinion. Cheaper labor unfortunately cannot fix anything in this company and way too many things need to be fixed anyways.
Heard of some layoffs in Europe and know there are others coming here. Anyone willing to let us know what those packages may entail?
And yet again someone from our location leaves and we hire their 'replacement' in another world area. Why does Fisher even bother pretending it cares about keeping Marshalltown working. Everyone is trying to leave before the other shoe drops.
I think I will get a higher pay sooner if I go to a company that will initially give me less, but in which I will be able to progress faster than if I was to stay here and wait. Is Emerson really not able to give a bigger raise to the people who... — read more
Heard raises will happen in October (TBD on %). Hopefully it is over 3% (inflation is well over 5% since the last raise).
Where is that "Super Exec." Bob Sharp??? Since DNF is on the board of IBM, I thought he would have him running the company, & poaching all that EMR talent. Perhaps Pelch is also available.
The most deepest impression about Emerson is layoff. Even you're excellent, one day you will be laid off suddenly. My first supervisor was laid off at 55 years old. My second supervisor was laid off at 65 years old. Everyone will experienced layoff... — read more
In my case, that was a long time ago. I thought I would stay here until retirement but no. I will be here for a few more days, I gave notice and now I'm summarizing my impressions. A few years ago, I would never have thought that this company... — read more
NP asked us to 'please' use vacation, because it would help the books look better. Who else thinks that this is the first salvo of cost reductions? Next... VSP?, more outsourcing/insourcing American jobs? Every two or three years, we ride this... — read more
What are some of the d-mbest things you see go on at your location? Big or small, what do you see that just blows your mind? Employees stealing company equipment, but lower level management refusing to deal with it? What you got?
That is, what interests me is do you think Emerson would be a much better company just to cut the number of managers? Some say that it would be because there would be huge savings, and some think that it would not, because the problems of this... — read more
Let’s be honest nothing has changed. We’ve been waiting month after month quarter after quarter - nothing will ever change. Different leaders but the same games. Meritocracy is dead. Just say yes, don’t hold any one accountable, brush indiscretions... — read more
Did anyone read Brooke Sutherland’s article about Emerson being stuck in the past? It was an enlightening read and one where most of the blame was placed on Farr and mentioned his disastrous WSJ article that clearly Lal is looking to distance the... — read more
Which division do you think is the worst run and why?
I realized how much skills atrophy here only after I started looking for a new job. I am to blame the most for what happened, of course, however, it was impossible to grow skills and work with dedication in this company where there is not much room... — read more
The email this afternoon told me that there is no protection from a$$hats who are not vaccinated and won’t wear a mask. I work with at least two of these people. I have asked him directly and they report that they are not vaccinated. So… What does... — read more
Emerson management keeps tabs on this site so here’s some free advice. Hire an outside firm to do independent evaluations of your current leadership. Just because they are hitting numbers doesn’t mean people aren’t running to leave certain... — read more
Emerson Electric’s Emerson Automation Solutions group will lay off 67 workers and close its facility in Black Mountain, according to the most recent North Carolina Department of Commerce Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (NC WARN) report... — read more
A lot of folks are either walking away or being cut and their positions are not being backfilled. It won't be much longer before we can't handle the amount of work - he-l, we are already struggling as it is. If we lose one more person and do not get... — read more
Does anybody know if there have been any changes to the severance package during the last year or so? I know some people were laid off a few months ago, does anybody know what they were offered? I'm worried there might have been some pandemic-related... — read more
I am curious if I am the only one fed up with this woke BS that we’re seeing within Emerson? I’m not surprised at all based on the leadership throughout, but enough is enough. If you’re white, straight and a Christian you need to be on your best... — read more
Being said that Emerson has sold the division? Has anyone heard anything?
A coworker is claiming he heard several people were let go last week. Nothing major, which is why he says I probably didn't hear about it. I'm kind of hesitant to believe him. I know a few layoffs are not a lot but it is a few layoffs and I highly... — read more
In spite of the hearsay, RAS has turned a corner and is now thriving! As they bring people back to the office, not only has morale improved, but the culture has improved as well. I think they are headed for a comeback story, especially in the... — read more
The accusations that all of the problems at Zedi, Geofields and ESI are one person’s fault is false. You could argue that these companies should not have been bought by Emerson. But, given all we have been through and continue to deal with in the oil... — read more
There was a post about major layoffs at RAS and especially ESI that was removed, I'm assuming because the poster used names (which is not allowed here.) I'm hoping we can get the discussion going again here and post more info on what's going on just... — read more
I tried in every way to get a promotion but nothing helped. Not that I think of myself as much better than others, but objectively, I deserved promotion much more than some people who got it without much trouble. I don't know what is the... — read more
It is true that this company has been going downhill for many years. Despite everything, some people are still very loyal and only recently have I heard from many more people that they want to go or are looking for their next jobs. I would also be... — read more
We’re supposed to be “thankful” for having a job but in all honesty Emerson needs to be thankful for us who have stuck around. Until they truly understand that the employees make this company things will never change. Regardless if you want to think... — read more
Has anyone had an exit interview after they give notice?
Never been more unhappy with my career with Emerson than I am now. This company isn’t the same company it was 3 years ago, much less what it was 10 or 20 years ago. All of the fun has been s—ed out and I won’t be able to take it much longer. It... — read more
I am debating whether to accept a solid new job and start all over again, or to stay for a while longer to see how the situation will develop further. I wonder if it is even worth staying here, mainly, will the company recover and how long could the... — read more
