    Pros

    I worked in their automotive division and had a great experience with the people and values of the corporation. They really focus on doing business right.

    Cons

    Because of its size, Eaton can be slow to change and policies don't always make sense for a given business unit. Sometimes hard to navigate across industries.

  8. Eaton is a big company you must try.

    I worked at Eaton full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent human resources philosophy and great benefits...almost similar to pharmaceuticals.

    Cons

    At the moment I worked, a small group in the HR department for the work we had. Right now, I understand they have the right number of employees.

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

    Pros

    Out of the several companies I've worked for, Eaton has the best business practices and management team. The company is just over 100 years old and appears to be managed extremely well. I have no doubt I could work for this company for another 20 years and still find myself employed.

    Cons

    The processes in place are more conducive towards manufacturing and sales. This leaves less room for innovation, since the primary purpose of the company is to make money and not to tinker. Since I'm an engineer, this is less appealing since it often means that less interesting, sure money-making projects are chosen over those with a more innovative slant.

    Another thing to consider is that Eaton is heavy on acquisitions, so your experience can differ depending on which site you actually work at. It really depends on the local management team and the product lines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your business processes are great, but engineering and innovate has faltered since there's not an alternative development pathway for projects with a greater risk profile.

    I have been working at Eaton as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Professional people, culture that expects professionalism. 401k is awesome. There can be pressure at times but most of the time the work is expected to be done and will accommodate for personal schedule as necessary.

    Cons

    Location is manufacturing environment so will be in places where land is cheap. There are a lot of community building events and the culture values health and fitness of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
