    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.

    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
