    I have been working at Eaton Hydraulics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free coffee and hot cocoa all day long, not too fast paced because quality is more important, coworkers are fun, decent pay.

    Cons

    Can't have a life and work there, way too much overtime, it feels like nobody really listens to employees even though they say they do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to interviewees about the level of overtime or claim it's voluntary when it really isn't. Ethics seems to be a surface priority, not to an actual priority. Treat everyone the same, esp when people bid on internal jobs.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great learning environment. They really worked with me to find a position that fit. It is also nice to be able to move a lot within the company

    In order to be successful within the company you must be willing to relocate a few times and the locations of the plants aren't always the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some clear direction from the beginning.

    I have been working at Eaton Hydraulics

    Pros

    My coworkers are awesome and they are willing to work together
    The operational teams are incredible and easy to work with

    Cons

    POLITICS
    Finance hiring friends of friends so there is one group of people that are running the show
    High turnover
    Finance leadership has ALOT to be desired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to look at the turnover rate of the financial analysts 18 people leaving or being forced out in 2.5 years has to make you wonder was it those 18 people or is there something wrong in the finance senior leadership?
