I have had two sexual harrassment encounters at this company and HR took them both seriously and protected me the whole way. This is very rare in this industry.

    If you are in customer service (sales, sales support, project management), expect VERY poor flexibility.

    Maybe. Without taking gender into account and the benefits being offered, working at Emerson is great for making great connections. A lot of the people that end up working here are smart, thoughtful, team players. The issue is feeling intimidated by all these men that will only take the other men out to lunches and/or special events. The men are the ones with the unofficial mentors and with only a handful of women in the company (only 1 in management in my business unit), there's an image that a woman's career development is not important or necessary.

They dont have a company maternity leave policy for emplioyees. They took away vacation accrual now we have to rely on fmla unpaid vacation for maternity leave. If you are out of work more than 90 days due to maternity you have to pay cobra.

    Store director feels entitled to the time of all of his employees and has verbalized that several times throughout his time a time our store. He told us that we need to provide reasons for requesting off and if there were multiple on the same day from different employees he would use his judgement to grant the day off to the employee with the "best reason". There are also lots of women that have come forward and said that he has harassed them and he continues to get promoted and moved up in our company.

If you are a new real estate agent make sure you completely understand the commission structure, and take as many training classes as possible. Not every manager is able to mentor you.
