    Pros

    Really good pay and benefits. Company truck with personal use encouraged, not just allowed.
    Company pays upfront for all expenses.

    Cons

    The spontaneous assignment of jobs. Constant overtime and days to weeks away from home.
    Lack of information on what a job requires; much less how to do it.
    Managament gets just ridiculously tight with expenditures over the silliest and simplest of things for no apparent reason.

    Advice to Management

    Significant improvement to work force. Double it.

    Pros

    The ability to do work from home, flexible work schedule. Down to earth people.

    Cons

    Some people feel as iff the leadership is taking an approach to appease Wall Street instead of customers.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to quality, Eaton is lacking in this area and will need to recover from mistakes if this is not taken care of immediately.

  6. A great place to be!

    Pros

    I do not have anything good to say about Eaton for I feel that we have become a second rate company since the acquisition of Cooper Industries. We were told that this was a merger, but I don't agree with all the secrets and the covering of the Cooper Industries logo.

    Cons

    We are a legacy Cooper facility. Our pay and benefits have been drastically affected by the acquisition of Cooper Industries by the Eaton Corporation. We have become so overcrowded and disorganized since the takeover. I feel that we have lost that small family atmosphere. Eaton makes me feel like a number instead of somebody. I think Eaton is too big. Monopolies will tend to fall in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    * Leadership Development Programs with Eaton are a great opportunity to learn a lot in a short time.
    * Eaton has Electrical, Vehicle, Aerospace, Hydraulics and more. As an Engineer there are many great places to work, and many of the skills transfer well across different parts of the company.
    * Pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    * Nothing too notable. Most things come down to preference.

    Advice to Management

    * Develop, develop, develop. Look for ways to open doors for your employees. Managers who do this are highly valued.

  11. Downward spiral.

    Pros

    Solid, yet highly unappreciated workforce. Tuition re-imbursement plan is competitive. Company is highly safety oriented.

    Cons

    Constant reduction in benefits. Company is committed to reducing salaries across all phases of manufacturing, as well as office personnel. Experienced employees, with higher salaries, jobs are looked at as liabilities.

    Advice to Management

    Quality employees keep you in business. The better your workforce, the higher your profits. Eaton constantly talks about employees being their most valued asset; treat them like it!
