Everything depends on your manager. Some are much better than others. While they are working to be more equal and diverse, the right manager makes all the difference.

    There is no paternity leave. They will abide by TN's more liberal leave laws, but will not let you know that you have that option.

February 2016

Don't work at Emerson if you are an ambitious female. Sex discrimination both overt and covert are rampant. You might be ok up to manager level. Their are tons of female managers. They advertise those jobs internally. Director and above jobs aren't usually advertised so their is no application process and the good old boys club takes over. At a presentation on mentoring, women were advised that men mentoring women were seen as affairs but since there are almost no women at higher levels it becomes impossible to have mentors let alone sponsors. They really don't even give lip service to diversity beyond having a non enforced non discrimination policy in place. Every reorganization or newly created director or VP role go to men. It's clear that from the top on down that women are not considered to even have leadership potential or decision making ability.

January 2016

Previous CEO was very old-school. New CEO is trying to change things but boys-club mentality still there. Very few women in technical roles and those few are limited to Corporate laboratory/R&D. Female ambition is labeled as aggressive or argumentative but encouraged in males.

November 2015

While there isn't anything particularly egregious that's wrong - it definitely is digging itself out of a 'boy's club' mindset that has persisted since the founding of the company. There's not much of an HR department so understanding the benefits, which in most cases are the federal minimum, can be difficult.

October 2015

Very diverse (women & minorities) company at its major research center. However, recently took a step backwards with maternity leave policy, going from 6-8 weeks of paid disability and up to 26 weeks of unpaid leave to the same paid disability but with only the FMLA minimum of 12. Has very helpful lactation programs for non-traveling moms. Still gender segregated at highest levels, but there does not appear to be a gender bias for promotions/pay scale.

October 2015

Ball is a great place to work. That said, leadership is male-dominated and not diverse, as few women are selected for higher positions than manager level. Maternity leave is paid 60%-100% of base salary (i.e., no bonus) for 6 weeks (or 8 weeks for C-section), depending on how long a woman has worked at Ball. New employees (<1 year), only get 1 week paid.

April 2015

Although the corporate office has come a long way, there is still a feeling of "boys club" mentality at the business units. There are not a ton of women employed by the company at large, and even fewer have made it to the top levels of the company. This can be very hard on a young woman entering, who is not sure if/how she will be able to proceed up the ladder without making large sacrifices.
