Emerson

Project Engineer

August - December 2019 • Sidney, OH

What I liked

This was my first experience as a real engineer, and I really enjoyed it! I worked in new product development, and one of the areas that this included was competitive analysis. My favorite project was taking a competitor's product testing it, and getting to learn all about it and present my findings back to my manager.

What I wish was different

I wish that was given more responsibilities at this position. I think due to my lack of technical experience, I was given smaller filler projects for most of my time at the company.

Advice

It is a great place to start and learn about the vast field of engineering. The biggest take-away that I have from this experience is that communication and time management are huge in this industry and our future careers.

Line Worker

May - July 2019 • Sidney, OH

What I liked

Supervisors in my plant were polite and helpful.

What I wish was different

There was no air conditioning in the particular plant I worked in. I had a very physically demanding job where there should have been a lift/hoist but all the work was done manually.

Advice

Be sure to find out what kind of work you would be doing during your interview so you are positive if you want to work for them.

Engineering Co-Op

August 2020 • Sidney, OH

What I liked

My managers were both really supportive and communicated often with me. I was also able to get nearly the full experience of doing work done by full-time engineers: designing, testing, analysis, programming, collaborating, and reporting.

What I wish was different

I wish it did not occur during a Covid-intensive semester. There were a couple of outbreaks in the area and it was quite scary to physically go to work everyday despite everything. The fact that the company was located in an area where mask-wearing is not prevalent in public also did not help.

Advice

I would recommend this position to any Industrial Engineering student looking for real-world experience while earning their degree.

Simulation Co-op

January - August 2020 • Marshalltown, IA

What I liked

What I liked the most was the amount of freedom / responsibility given to me on my projects. Our team was fairly small so there is a lot of crucial work that needs to be done by everyone. Everyone on my team was great at communicating even in full online environment.

What I wish was different

I wish the company would give co-ops the chance to continue working during the school year. Especially on the Simulation team, where it would be very doable.

Advice

Make sure you keep track of all your responsibilities on your projects on a piece of paper or something. At some points, I was working on at least half a dozen projects so having them on a document helped me see my priority in work.

Tool Design Co op

January 2019 - August 2020 • Marshalltown, IA

What I liked

- I enjoyed the variety of interesting and engaging projects that I was able to work on. - I felt like I was treated like a full time engineer, with responsibility and work load. - Friendly work environment, with very knowledgeable employees. - Great company culture with engagement within and outside of the office.

What I wish was different

- More hands on time on the Manufacturing floor (Cut short due to COVID-19).

Advice

One piece of advice that I would give to anyone working at a large company like Emerson, is to ask as many questions as you possibly can while you are working here and go into everything with an open mind. My experience at Emerson was rich with potential learning opportunities from employees or processes that I just had to reach out people to learn more about them.

Sales Engineer

May - December 2019 • Marshalltown, IA

What I liked

The people at this company really contributed the most to my positive experience. Everyone is so inviting, welcoming, and eager to answer questions. I was doing meaningful, full-time work and projects and was really treated like an equal. The co-op events are extremely fun and beneficial. The housing is offered at such a great deal, and I felt like I was being very fairly compensated for my work.

What I wish was different

Advice

Make the most of your time on this co-op - it's very easy to stay in your apartment and spend time by yourself, but if you aren't proactive about making friends, you probably won't enjoy your time in Marshalltown, as it is a small town. Make those connections, and your experience will be positive.

Design Co-Op

May - December 2019 • Marshalltown, IA

What I liked

I enjoyed the projects I worked on. I was not an intern, I was an engineer just like my co-workers. I received "real" work to complete and had deadlines just like everyone else here. The people were fantastic as well, and everyone seemed really enthusiastic about their jobs. My co-workers' enthusiasm made it easy for me to stay focused on my job because everyone had a positive attitude. This is a one of a kind experience, and I recommend this company to anyone considering anything and everything engineering. They have something for everyone.

What I wish was different

I honestly wouldn't change a thing! This was a fantastic experience that went above and beyond what I could have hoped for a co-op.

Advice

Be a sponge! Soak up the information your co-workers give you because they are knowledgeable and simply want to see you grow to become successful.

Simulation Co-Op

May - December 2019 • Marshalltown, IA

What I liked

I really liked the flexibility and the options I had. I was able to work on multiple things and had the option of deciding what I wanted to work for the day. I could work on different projects at a time, so it helped my time management skills. The community is very welcoming and there's never a wrong time to ask questions. The Co-op program also had outside of work activities, like community service, team building events, and networking events. Emerson also provides housing to Co-Ops and interns, to me it was a very important aspects since I'm an out-of-state student.

Writing more code is better than thinking all day, and the point is, you will probably rewrite it.

Leadership Development Program Intern

May - August 2017 • Augusta, GA

What I liked

I had the opportunity to work on a great team down in Augusta. I was part of the controls compliance and business integration team. During my internship I had the chance to work on numerous projects that dealt with the integration of a $500 million company. This led to multiple business trips around the country with the team. I made some lifelong connections with some of the 100+ interns as well as the full time employees at Textron on my team. I was exposed to SAP and learned how the ERP is used in daily business operations. I also developed efficiency in excel through daily use completing tasks.

What I wish was different

Although I was challenged with many large projects throughout the summer, there were some days where I did not have much work to do. This challenged me to connect with the team, learn the kind of work they are doing for the company, and ask to take some work off of their plate.

Advice

Take the initiative to network with everyone in the office regardless if they are on your immediate team. There is always an opportunity to learn from someone else, and making these connections is a great way to take on new projects and make the most out of your internship experience.
