    Pros

    Ethics orientation - leaders are always held accountable to do the right thing, growth in attractive markets, competitive salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Eaton is growing ever larger and more complex, will the systems & processes they've developed be robust enough now that they are a much larger company? Also questions about upcoming senior leadership turnover.

    I have been working at Eaton

    Pros

    Stable company to work for with great benefits including paid gym. Eaton University is a good place to learn new abilities. I am very proud to be part of Eaton.

    Cons

    Not good at paying for the risks you face at work. Does little to recognize your extra efforts. It is as political as any other company. Not much latest research on Electrical Side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more money behind projects on Electrical side and make the leadership try out new ways of doing things (everyway).
