I have been working at Eaton full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

A caring company that believes the wellfare of their employees affects the bottom line in a positive way. Very good work life balance. Good benefits. The people are relaxed, not formal. Good for me, but not for everyone.

Cons

Work experience and satisfaction may vary upon location and business unit, true with any global company. Holiday time off is very back end loaded. You get the time off, but most of it is at the end of the year, from Thanksgiving to the new year. After that it is a long drought. You can use your vacation time to break it up if you want. The interview process is painfully long. While it seems to successful in getting the right person for the jom, most of the time, the length of time that it takes may turn off some people.

Advice to Management

When contemplating the hiring of a contract who has been working for you for close to a year you should already know if you want to hire them full time or not. The interview process is a waste of time for both them and any other individuals that you interview for the position. You have had a year to interview them, they are a known quantity, either you want them or you don't.

    Pros

    good pay. safe working conditions

    Cons

    No Bonus's other employees tend to be very cut throat and Harrass other employees

    Advice to Management

    offer insentives like bonus's for high productive score with out scrap, bonus's for reduction of scrap. Say thank you not with a new watch but with cash bonus's Holiday time offer a turkey. People tend to think upper management don't appreciate thier skill, That makes the company operate and perform and produce the product in turn makes the share holders money.

    I worked at Eaton full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The foundation of Eaton and the Vision, Mission, Values, and Work Philosophies are solid. Overall teh work systems and tools are good and Eaton's reputation seems solid in the market with customer and potential employees. Career advancement opportunities are good.

    Cons

    Big company - so, not very flexible and agile. Recent acquisitions have grown the business to the point - leadership talent is spread very thin in key roles. This is a conservative and risk adverse company. Core focus is diversified industrial - OEM - and to a lessor extent service. Service as a growth engine has taken a step back 2012/2013.

    Advice to Management

    Restore the leadership structure with strong domain experts and correct skill sets/competencies to run the various businesses. Leadership roles are not being filled based on who is the most competent to get the job done - but, more via corporate politics.
