    I have been working at Eaton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Offers a competitive pay, benefits are okay. Great leaders at the top levels (General Managers, Human Resources, etc.) and a company that you can be proud to work with. Eaton University is a good place to learn new abilities. Solid philosophies of safety and ethics, E-Star system has a lot of potential. I am very proud to be part of Eaton.

    Cons

    Not good at paying for the risks you face at work. Does little to recognize your extra efforts, should use the E-Star system more often. Very political(As in political favors and favoritism) at the lower levels of leadership(Managers, supervisors and coordinators).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Urgently needs to take a look at how business is handled at the lower levels of leadership. A lot of unfair things go on. Needs to do a better job of choosing the right people for those positions. Evaluation system totally flawed, also needs re-evaluation.
