I have been working at Eaton Aerospace full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLaid back atmosphere. Good company to work for. A very diversified company. Training is encouraged and moving up is all up to the individual.

ConsLarge company means your voice isn't heard. Management spends more time in meetings than actually managing.

Overall a pretty good place to work, but a little too corporate for me.

Test Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at Eaton Aerospace full-time for more than 5 years

ProsStrong focus on ethics and at my location a friendly atmosphere.

ConsThey are very slow to replace job openings and constantly understaffed.

Advice to Senior ManagementI have been hearing the same message for 5 years. "Every quarter was a tough challenge, but we had good financial results and we have to keep doing more with less." It's getting to be a tired message.

good money but bad management

Machine Operator (Current Employee)
East Providence, RI

I have been working at Eaton Aerospace full-time for more than 8 years

Prosgood money, steady employment, union shop, work on your own, not too much of management looking over your shoulder, etc. that's about it

Consbad management, corp says one thing and management does another and expects you to sign off on it, so when something goes wrong you are on the hook for it. Horrible medical plans! they do not take safety seriously, they claim to in the meetings then management on the floor tells you to lift 100 lbs by yourself, use machines when safety guard is broken, this type of thing

Advice to Senior Managementfollow the rules. Union and corp.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

You'll do fine if you're average and don't expect to grow.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Jackson, MS

I have been working at Eaton Aerospace full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAbove average benefits. Pay is in line with the area.

ConsUpper management doesn't have a clue what customers expect....good quality and on time delivery. Corporate Supply Chain only manages the metrics, which means not enough inventory to run the company. The result is dissatisfied customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo to the trouble to learn the details of what you manage. Only then will you be able to understand what the real issues are and how to solve them. Reward the real contributors and the individuals that are willing to go the extra mile for the company. If you surround yourself only with people that agree with you all the time, nothing will ever improve. Eaton is full of good people that have just given up on improvement because they know their boss will make it hard on them if they make waves.
