    WFH, good work culture, appraisals ,good teams

    Cons

    It totally depends on which entity you are working in .IF your are in Corp, EIEC,EITC its great but for SMC /GFSS or SSC ,you will be treated like 2nd grade employee and benefits,growth is also less with lots of politics and favoritism

    Advice to Management

    when you say One Eaton, then make it happen across entities . Change the culture of SSCs (SMC or SCM )
