Good company for entrepreneurial career development

Senior Analyst (Former Employee)
Eden Prairie, MN

ProsThere's plenty of room to chart your own course, if you're willing to work without a net. Many of the managers are good mentors. There are chances to move around the country (USA) and even work abroad, if you become an expert in something they need.

ConsEaton has it's share of sharks, but the people to really beware of are those who want to bide their time and just take home a paycheck. If you're ambitious, they'll hold you back.
Pride of product doesn't appear to motivate executives in Cleveland. They're more interested in the next acquisition.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo complaints, really. Continue to invest in your employees. Consider investing more in R&D.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
