Keep in mind that if you are not getting a 10% raise you are losing money. The inflation is eathing into wages. We are raising prices to keep up with the inflation, it's safe to assume that the prices will go up 10% to keep the level. When it comes to raises we'll never see 10% increases, therefore they are making money on us.
I am sure there is a formula for exec bonuses that takes this in cosideration.

You have three options, work how you want and don’t let the culture change you, work how Emerson expects and become half of what you are or leave.

My experience of Emerson are even lower than their annual raises
If you leave your desire to make a difference and do a good job at the house, you can have a pretty good career. Just don’t make waves and you’ll be fine. Just don’t make your boss look bad. Middle management sucks here.
Why not? Isn't a 0.2% better raise worth the extra work?
