    I worked at Eaton

    Pros

    Qualified people, goal oriented, good benefits.
    Many long timers within the company with positive inclusion of new green talent.

    Cons

    Organization has been tightening the belt for five years and continues to do so. Most staff lack adequate backup support; work life balance is talked about; not necessarily promoted. Good people with heavy workload makes it difficult to prove themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New leadership appears less visionary; more likely to make decisions based on past/current quarter performance.

When it comes to diversification, Eaton favors an all-you-can-eat approach. The manufacturer has made dozens of acquisitions (as well as divestitures) in its long and storied history.
