    I have been working at Eaton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Offers a competitive pay, benefits are okay. Great leaders at the top levels (General Managers, Human Resources, etc.) and a company that you can be proud to work with. Eaton University is a good place to learn new abilities. Solid philosophies of safety and ethics, E-Star system has a lot of potential. 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, should use the E-Star system more often. Very political(As in political favors and favoritism) at the lower levels of leadership(Managers, supervisors and coordinators).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Urgently needs to take a look at how business is handled at the lower levels of leadership. A lot of unfair things go on. Needs to do a better job of choosing the right people for those positions. Evaluation system totally flawed, also needs re-evaluation.

    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).
