Eaton Electrical is an OK place to work

Product Manager (Former Employee)
Raleigh, NC

ProsGood entry point into electrical industry
Interesting challenges
Good peer atmosphere

ConsLack of leadership at senior levels
Sub-par support functions
Lack of interest in developing people

Advice to Senior ManagementEaton is a company with outdated practices and lack of investment in both development of people and support functions for engineering and marketing.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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
