    I worked at Eaton full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    The pay was very good. I was given the freedom to accomplish my job with minimal supervision. The location I worked at was big on "community involvement" and this meant, they promoted groups and clubs to promote a welcoming/friendly environment. If you're fortunate enough to be hired, congrats to you, you'll almost never have a chance of being held accountable.

    Cons

    The company had recently changed CEO's and you could tell. When I first started in the late 2000's, the company was HUGE on employee satisfaction. That's not to say they had a firm grasp on what to do to make everybody happy but at least they did their best to promote that they cared about our satisfaction... As time went on, they had less emphasis on employee satisfaction. Management DOES NOT hold employees accountable....

    Advice to Management

    I understand diversity but there needs to be a way to minimize complacency and those people who just don't care about their performance. Eliminate complacency, drop the dead weight. Your top performers are doing 90% of the work and getting burned out because 90% of your employees don't know what they're doing, are complacent, aren't held accountable, and I'm sure you get the point by now.

    "A once great company in decline with new CEO"

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Eaton

      Pros

      Great people and a strong desire for improvement

      Cons

      Lack of ethics within CEO/Chairman’s office compounded with his lack of transparency and implementing his former GE tactics at once proud company. He plays with rewards at his own discretion and somehow, he has been able to get the Board of Directors to buy-in to his unethical practices. For example, never in the history of Executive Incentive Compensation (EIC) under former and ethical CEO’s has EIC NOT followed the...
