    Former Employee - Electrical Engineering Intern

    Pros

    I got to work on many different projects, getting a feel for all different aspects of engineering. I got to work in some control engineering, design engineering, and validation testing. Overall, I think I got a great feel for what it would be like to be an engineer working in the field. Pay was also very competitive for an intern position.

    Cons

    Because of the nature of an internship I never really got to fully immerse myself in one project. Mostly I was moved around every week or so to a part of the team that needed some extra help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None that I can think of.

    Eaton is fond of relocation.
