I worked at Eaton

Pros

The money was good and the overall experience was not bad.

Cons

The site I worked at had huge problems that I do not believe reflect on Eaton as a whole. The management at the site was incompetent and did not value the employees. They did not follow corporate directives and were horrible leaders. The management was made up of a group of people who worked together and it was very much an "old boys" network.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Re-evaluate the site management at various sites, especially Beltsville, MD.

    I have been working at Eaton

    Pros

    Eaton is acquiring related competitors and growing at a solid rate. Future looks good at Eaton.

    Cons

    Worklife balance is non-existing. Comp time or overtime pay would show that management really appreciates its salaried workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider keeping U.S. plants open. Profitable plants are closing at a rapid rate just so ROS can improve a couple of points.

    Pros

    Good midwest company that is trying to become a world recognized name.

    Cons

    Heavy turnover (i.e. relocation) is expected for promotions. Lack of presense in geographically desirable cities, outside of California.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Split the job of CEO and Chairman. Limit the compensation packages (including equity) to top management, and become better stewards for shareholders by not diluting equity to fund acquisitions (think of equity as something very precious - part with it only if get something of greater value in return).
