    I worked at Eaton full-time (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.

    I have been working at Eaton full-time (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 Management

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

    I worked at Eaton part-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    Good People, great training, global reach

    Cons

    Complicated advancement, lots of office politics, compensation was, at best, only market rate, lots of acquisitions shaking up corporate structure

    Advice to Management

    See through politics, find objective measures of ability, promote high performers

    I have been working at Eaton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Great salary. Company supports healthy initiatives. There is a gym on site and free exercise classes. Typical "corporate" experience but it sure beats working at a law firm!!

    Cons

    They are trying to move to an "open" work space (new cubes with low walls) which, in my opinion, does not cultivate a positive work environment. Some depts are better to work for than others (due to different managers).

    Pros

    Benefits are really good. Company Laptop, paid phone bill, 401k, insurance coverage, HSA, and lots of fun outings.

    Cons

    You definitely know that you are salary and work a lot more than 45 - 50 hours a week. Lot of late nights and weekends. Think that's why we have a laptop.
