Pros

Eaton's policies and management are such that micro-management doesn't happen and employees are empowered to make their own decisions. Work-life balance is excellent and ingrained in the company culture. All employees are expected to behave ethically, top to bottom.

Cons

As a large corporation, changes can take a long time to be implemented, even at the team/department level. All feedback is evaluated and elevated, but can get lost in the mix.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create incentive packages that 1) are directly related to job performance; and 2) align the goals of all departments and production facilities to meet customer needs.

    Pros

    Work is steady as it's climb to grow the company. A great focus on ethics. There are lots of opportunity for growth - since there are lots of needs. Once you are found to be 'top-talent', you are given many great learning experiences and can do some really amazing things. Culture of the company is very relationship and people centric - so please go to the mixers and off-site meetings - that is where the work and network really occur.

    Cons

    Most everyone wears several hats, and are extremely busy. Most people once they hit management barely have time to check email. Eaton is so focused on supposedly growing generic talent that each person has a rotation in each product line, marketing, engineering, and operations, which causes stagnation of innovation (because you have no experts) and alot of duplication (since again there are few people that really know) and which causes the following issues: The technology in their bread and butter products is yesteryear, though stable - and since Eaton is conservative, very rarely shake things up - do not expect them to really lead anything. Eaton also has as a very naive opinion of the power and business of software - something that is not likely to change in the next decade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the push for excellence - but please surround yourself by more passionate people for their expected role!
