I have been working at Eaton full-time for more than a year

Pros

- a focus on ethics. Eaton makes this a priority, and it shows: the culture here is that we always act ethically
- opportunities: being large and diverse, there is always room for lateral or vertical moves, regardless of the economy. Of you are talented, you'll have a job here
- a common vision: "powering business worldwide" isn't just a tagline, it defined what we do. No matter where you go within Eaton, the focus is always on providing efficient power management needs for our customers.

Cons

- a true corporation. If you don't want to be a cog in a big institution, look elsewhere
- it can be frustrating trying to effect change, due to the large size and top-down management
- in the aerospace group, there has been a lot of organizational shift lately, which makes it difficult to consistently perform at the plant-level

    I worked at Eaton as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great intern program with good on boarding process and mentors. Lots of exposure and opportunities to meet management and people from different functions.

    Cons

    Direct supervisor was often out of the office, making it difficult to move ahead on projects sometimes. Didn't have a defined project going into the internship which made it difficult early on.

    I worked at Eaton full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Plenty opportunities if you are willing to relocate
    Average compensation with good benefits
    Management listens to and acts on employee survey/feedback

    Cons

    People usually left in seeking of higher pay
    Less likely to pay your MBA tuition because Eaton offers plenty training program. So may not be a place for young and ambitious people who seeks for MBA sponsorship.
