  1.  

    Extremely professional in every area. Concern and care of employees is obvious to any who work there.

    Pros

    This company is willing to look at workers who are older and give them the opportunity to do a job.

    I really can't think of any at this moment

    Pros

    Valuable training. People will have to deal with multi-tasks, which makes people grow very fast. Work-life balance is encouraging and excited for employees.

    Cons

    Focus on policies and rules, which is a little too strict to some extent. Competitive and intense working condition.

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

    Pros

    Eaton has a values-based culture and builds its reputation on doing business right. Our people are our greatest asset and it shows. You have to be at work at least 40-50 hours a week and it makes such a difference in your quality of life when you truly enjoy being around your coworkers. I have made some lifelong friendships and professional connections while being at Eaton, and those are invaluable for me. Everyone is really happy and enjoys what they do. We hire really great people!

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits are slightly above market value, but you might be able to get a higher-paying job somewhere else. I think the benefits, work-life balance, values, opportunities for growth, and corporate culture is what keeps people here. Eaton has a traditional culture. It isn't a start-up tech company and doesn't have all the bells and whistles that might come with a trendy new company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to continue to maintain internal equity and reward accomplishments more frequently.

    I worked at Eaton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Senior leadership was top notch. I was treated fairly and always felt like a valuable team contributor. I was offered an opportunity to move to Michigan, but felt that was not a good move for me.

    Cons

    Some staff were not held as accountable as others.
