    Eaton is Not What it Projects

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits for the area. Most of the actual workers are good people trying to do "The Right Thing" but are reluctant to do so when they know their jobs (and the ability to support their family) are on the line.

    Cons

    If you like Back Porch Politics and behind the scenes Handshaking, this is the place for you. If you like working for 8 to 12 hours a day in a concentration camp-sweatshop environment, please submit your resume'. If you can get along with a Plant Manager that implemented and promotes a fear culture, you belong on our "team".

    If you have a sense of Integrity and Honor.... If you raise the flag when something isn't right..... If you question the status quo.... Eaton Sarasota IS NOT the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit wearing blinders. Don't just look at the Metrix and think that all is well. Look at HOW those results were achieved. Fair treatment across the board. If it is ok for salaried personnel then it is ok for everyone. If the average worker has to comply so should the people who work on the carpet. Make the Plant Manager and his Staff not only "Talk It" but "Walk It". If they won't then toss them.

    Pros

    Company makes an honest effort to take employee feedback into consideration when rolling out new initiatives. Managers care about their reports.

    Cons

    Sometimes the simplest changes take a very long time to implement within the matrix structure. The need to drive standards over time does not always address current needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strategy is well articulated but it is not always clear how current actions will address the strategy in the near-term.
