    I worked at Eaton full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked in their automotive division and had a great experience with the people and values of the corporation. They really focus on doing business right.

    Cons

    Because of its size, Eaton can be slow to change and policies don't always make sense for a given business unit. Sometimes hard to navigate across industries.
