    Pros

    Ethics orientation - leaders are always held accountable to do the right thing, growth in attractive markets, competitive salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Eaton is growing ever larger and more complex, will the systems & processes they've developed be robust enough now that they are a much larger company? Also questions about upcoming senior leadership turnover.
