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 have been working at Eaton as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Adept mentoring for length of employment
    Cross-Functional Project opportunities
    Latitude to transfer into other departments/functions
    Challenging growth assignments
    Open knowledge transfer and collaboration expedites the steep learning curve to perform beyond expectations almost immediately
    A truly open-door policy for brainstorming to devise optimal solutions to complex problems
    Culture exemplifies their stated values

    Cons

    12 hour work days approximately 2-3 times a week for indirect support roles; however, personnel issues arise at untimely moments, so this reality is a widely known and accepted expectation of the role within any organization. The experience was extremely positive and allowed for both professional and personal growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting a mutually collaborative culture

    I have been working at Eaton full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay is good, and not only do they match a percentage of your 401k they also have a separate pension plan they contribute to.

    Cons

    The work load changes often and they are quick to downsize if need be. Half the people there worry about layoffs. Also when you ask management questions you don't often get a straight answer. They just like to tell you what sounds good at the moment, then it could change the very next day.
