    Pros

    Great benefits. Long lasting company.

    Cons

    Little career advancement. Once you are in a role, it is hard to change direction.

    Advice to Management

    Review hiring process. Sometimes hiring based on only education can be costly. You need to consider the combination of education AND experience. I have seen missed career advancement opportunities due to degree specific education requirements (general engineering versus specific engineering degree) for entry level positions while I had the experience that was required.

    Large corporation you can get lost in.

    Do more to hire from within and remove the Apex element that is used to hold core employees back

    Pros

    Career path, career support, guidance and tools to learn. If there is any one thing you want to do, Eaton will support it. Also, very supportive of personal life especially if you have a family emergency. Tons of opportunity.

    Cons

    You must be prepared to relocate if you want to move up in the company. 10 day vacation for first five years. Five day additional for every five years of tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Millennials will be looking for unique career paths. Must change structure to keep them
