Pros

At the sales office, the dress code is casual depending on when you go meet clients. You get out of the office enough such that you are not just sitting at your desk all the time. Friendly people, and the management is very easy to talk to.

Cons

Some of the work that is required can be mundane as you are reading over the requirements and creating quotes.

    Lack of leadership at senior levels

    Advice to Management

    Eaton is a company with outdated practices and lack of investment in both development of people and support functions for engineering and marketing.
    It is a good place to learn the business and gain industry and technical knowledge...but do not expect any sort of career progression if you do not get promoted within the first 2-3 years, it is not a meritocracy in any way, shape, or form.
     It is part of the culture and acceptable as long as you determine what you want early on and have options.
    Management should be aware, qualified engineers and marketers in some of the fields Eaton competes are scarce, especially if it takes years to learn the business and technical practices, but treat employees as expendable.

    Pros

    Eaton has great intentions across a wide range of employee areas. Eaton makes efficienct use of their website and Fidelity to administer benefits.

    Cons

    The formal Eaton business processes tend to make us less nimble in a number of competitive areas.
