    Eaton is truly a first class company. Above all, they treat their employees well and present themselves as extremely ethical. I left the company to start my own business ... if it wasn't for that, I would still be there!

    I worked at Eaton (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good place to grow and learn.

    Cons

    It is black or white, which can brutal. Saw many great people that were loyal, loved their job and high performers get fired for faulting a policy. Zero tolerance, zero opportunity to learn. Examples that will make you wonder where is the "human" in their Human Respurces. Little work life balance and a huge double standard with regards to this topic.

    Advice to Management

    Your harsh policies executed without any considerations are pushing people away. Do not forget that your people is your greatest asset. Focus your energy on coaching and developing. HR should not be a firing squad.

    I was hired as a production associate and promoted to customer service rep for custom OEM products. Eaton values their employees and are consistently improving processes to stay competitive to ensure job security and solid wages.

    Work hours are sometimes long and overtime may be necessary at times.
