I have been working at Eaton

Pros

Safe, comfortable environment (in my plant). Management seems committed to employee safety, and rewarding the workforce when safety or sales milestones are met.

Cons

Miserable, hot working conditions at an Eaton plant in this city. Office politics rules the day, every day. Subpar compensation... for the life of me I cannot understand how managers sleep at night during "review" season. Some of the best performers routinely get paltry 2% annual raises. This does not only apply to Eaton, but our CEO's total annual compensation is in the decamillions, which is completely outrageous, especially in light of the information from the previous sentence.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is such a thing as a bad customer. Heed the "80/20" rule; 80% of your headaches come from 20% of your customers... get rid of that 20%.

    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).

    The locations of many of our plants in the US are in very rural areas.
