Experience was overall a good company however there are pockets of depts that have weak leadership.

Pros

Eaton has some solid leaders at the top but most of the time it does not trickle down to middle management. Both Sandy Cutler and Rick Fearon are strong leaders and are moving the company in a good direction.

Cons

Managers are not strong leaders and do not know how to motivate their employees. Some depts, like mine, are very old school in the way they manage their groups and are not willing to bend. For example, working virtually is not a concept they would even consider.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to work harder at motivating and showing by example. If you are a manager, your reports are just as much a priority as your workload.

    Pros

    This is a great opportunity to really make a difference. I feel empowered and supported by management to make positive changes. The company takes its culture and values seriously. We do business right!

    Cons

    By cutting back during the recession the salaried workforce became pretty thin so we work very hard. But we are hiring so things are looking good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and always make sure to listen and empower your employees

    Pros

    If you already got a job there well hang to it because this is hard to get a better one now and if your conditions are fair enough to stay why change.

    Cons

    The HR department hire staffing agency from Texas (because no other agencies want them as a customer in Sarasota/Bradenton) for as low as $8.28 per hour to fire them out 4 days during a work rush in front of everybody for no good reason because they state they have a problem with the agency and after contacting the agency they say that the employee does'nt work out there !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a briefing to HR people on new corporative policies for agency workers or else kick these unprofessional HR senior and HR junior clerk who act like kids out for good.
