I worked at Eaton as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Pay is slightly higher than most in industry
Nice work life balance
"Bhaashan" about ethics and encouragement to innovation

Cons

None of their ethics related rules apply when the perceived culprit is an american and the victim happens to be indian

innovation according to eaton India is "field application engineering" where you put together bunch of existing eaton products. this combo forms a new "innovative product". no encouragement is given for fresh thinking. extremely stable company (read 'static')

all work has to be generated and driven from US. they dont need employees in India to be thinkers, they should only be good followers (i dont want to use the word "slaves")

    I have been working at Eaton full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Provides excellent training and development opportunities.
    Supports employees in stretch assignments.
    Strong values-based culture. Strong emphasis on ethics.
    "One Eaton" philosophy ensures common business practices and alignment across all our business units.

    Cons

    Conservative and slow in decision-making.
    We have an Inclusion and Diversity initiative, yet we preach the Eaton culture and try to "Eatonize" all our acquisitions - slightly oxymoronic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes we need to react and make decisions faster as the external environment is very dynamic. We cannot always afford to wait to obtain consensus as we risk missing opportunities. Perhaps we can prioritize and empower the key stakeholders.
