Great company to work for, especially as a Co-op.

A huge benefit of Emerson as a multinational company is the countless opportunities to get involved and build a network of relationships that last. Your experience is what you make of it. If there is something you want to do, ask. Feedback and ideas are always welcomed.

Product Marketing Intern

January - August 2019 • Marshalltown, IA

What I liked

- The work environment was great. It really did feel like a Fisher family. - I really enjoyed the work I did. It was challenging without being overwhelming. Mostly because I had a great manager. - I got to utilize my creative thinking and problem solving skills as well as improve my technical writing skills. - There was a wide variety of projects that I could work on so I was never bored. - Recruiting process is probably the best you can ask for. The recruiter was welcoming, friendly, and supper approachable. Really made me feel welcome from the very start. - It has a great and active Women In Stem group that provides lots of fun networking opportunities.

What I wish was different

- I would've liked to have a better housing location. Had a lot of building issues with the apartment I was staying in. - The town is small and there isn't much to do. if you're from out of state its hard to stay entertained. - Though the recruiting process was great, on boarding was a little rough. Its expected that you hit the ground running and there isn't much of a transition into your job.

Advice

- Job shadow if you can. There are many career opportunities with Emerson/Fisher Controls so take advantage of your time there and check them out. - Set up a 30 minute weekly meeting schedule with your manager if you can. Set this up as early as you can so you have less scheduling issues latter on during your stay. This helped me stay on track with what I was working on and allowed my manager to critique my work (especially during the start of my coop). It also helped build a mentor mentee relationship. - Ask as many questions as you can. You're expected to do real work that will impact the company so don't hesitate to ask if you're confused or unsure about something. Most managers are really supportive. - Take advantage of every event that comes up both inside and outside of work. The town is very small so there isn't much that you can do on your own. The coop program offers some events and volunteering opportunities that you should definitely take advantage of. - Be as involved in the organization as you can. There is a great Women in Stem group as well as other groups for both inside and outside of work. These are the best ways to network as well as integrate into the Fisher family. - Try to stay in town if you're from Iowa State. The coops that decided to commute to work missed out on a lot of social events and networking after work. Also there is a 45ish minute commute one way that is doable but can get annoying/tedious.

May - August 2018 • Sidney, OH

What I liked

The nice working atmosphere and the amount of work I received from my engineering team

A housing stipend

Business Development Intern

May - August 2018 • Danbury, CT

What I liked

I loved my manager and the way that he mentored me, always asking about skills I wanted to learn, what I was working on in my classes, and for ideas that could help him on his projects. He exposed me to meetings with executives and multiple business groups, and also allowed me to do my own work with offices across the country and in different global regions. My manager was absolutely the best part of working with Emerson, and I know that they take care to hire and train amazing managers.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have stayed longer to see the long term results of the project I was working on, but we'll see if I'll be able to return to this team in the future.

Advice

Ask for opportunities, and don't hesitate to give constructive feedback to people who are "above" you. They will usually appreciate input from a new set of eyes with a different perspective than someone who's been on the team for ten years.

NA Operations Intern

May - August 2018 • Marshalltown, IA

What I liked

I enjoyed being in a different state, and the people I worked with. The intern program was really fun and we got to go to many different event. Housing was almost completely covered.

What I wish was different

I wish there had been more ongoing direction throughout my internship. I didn't have access to information I needed through the summer. The business majors were payed significantly less than the engineering students even if they were doing the same exact thing. Many engineering students were in intern fields that I actually had more skill at.

Advice

It's important to keep asking for direction and help as you go. Make it clear what's to be expected of you.

Advanced Manufacturing Engineering Co-op

January - May 2018 • Sidney, OH

What I liked

I was given interesting projects from the start and ones that I would actually be able to use in a full-time position. Additionally, I liked the people I worked with.

What I wish was different

I wish there had been a better onboarding process within the department; what softwares you need access to, what you need a password for, how to use the various softwares...

Advice

Ask a lot of questions and always ask for more projects, eventually they'll give in and give you more responsibility.
