Exceptional company to work for

Product Manager (Current Employee)
Milwaukee, WI

I have been working at Eaton full-time for more than 5 years

ProsOne of the few companies that appreciates their employees and values them as an asset to the company. They are well structured with very good documented processes for most everything and I've never had a poor customer visit.

ConsDue to their conservative nature, they tend to be slow to respond to the market needs as well as timliness to market with new products. They're expectations are very high and many times unachievable with little release.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview your recognition process. Simply having one does not mean it is evenly distributed if at all. In a high stress environment, it should be recognized that the work week is 40 hours and that those that are forced to work 50 hours a week should not be considered the norm but rather an individual going above and beyond what the normal work environment should be....especially for a company promoting work-life balance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

It is a great at the start, but honeymoon ends fast

Buyer (Former Employee)

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


Pros: 401 and retirement pension and the other health benefits. … Cons: Cut-throat and employees bully one another. Ohio headquarters talks a good talk, but division, like Irvine do not follow. Little empires being… Advice to Senior Management: Stop causing division within the company. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
