I have been working at Eaton

Pros

Eaton pays better than most and the benefits are good. The vacation you accure and the holidays are equal or better than most places.

Cons

It seems like everytime it starts getting warm outside, we start working six days a week even when we were told we would not work our summer away another year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A model change is very important right now for the morale in our company, people can not keep their eyes and mind on task when all they can think about is that we were told we would not work six days a week again.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, great opportunities for advancement if willing to work hard. I would have nothing really negative to say about my experience there, I made regular career advancements throughout my 26 year career there. Company is progressive and diversified, and they have levereaged their portfolio to protect against market fluxuations very well.

    Cons

    Recent merger of Truck and Automotive groups into one Vehicles Group has caused major confusion within the front line work force. Large corporate atmosphere removes much of the individuality and talent of it's workforce. The move was supposed to highlight the 'Power of One', but it was handled poorly by upper management, and coupled with the economic downturn seemed to cause mass-confusion instead of the benefits as outlined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As with any large corporation, management needs to focus on it's employees, employee involement, and employee feedback rather than the bottom line. Eaton holds an annual employee survey although most employees hold back their honest opinions because the survey has a way of leading to added work with no real results. Sandy Cutler is a great leader, but individual Business Unit managers have lost their true focus and employee committment.
