    I have been working at Eaton full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy people to work with. Good benefits. Not too difficult work.

    Cons

    Depending on the department you are in, there can be a lot of overtime. Last week of the month and last quarter of the year can be very busy. A lot of overtime can be expected during these times. Like many manufacturing companies, there are some politics involved. Only way to work in upper level roles like in the office or in any manager/supervisor roles requires at least a degree 2 year degree or a 4 year degree. Preferably in an engineering field or business.

    Advice to Management

    Work on inventory! I know it's been an issue for years, but there has to be a solution to why we run low on parts. Once that has been solved and hiring more employees can then reduce the amounts of overtime.

    I have been working at Eaton full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of growth opportunities across several divisions if you are willing to relocate. Fair expense and travel policy. Early phase of flexible work options, but it's looking promising.

    Cons

    Big company bureaucracy slows decision making. Local leadership does not have courage to push upward to corporate. Creates frequent unplanned shift in priorities (frustrating).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your local product and business experts who are closest to customers.

    I have been working at Eaton full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, community oriented, professional environment.

    Cons

    No career paths/promotions, slow to make decisions, continual reorganization without fixing underpinning process problems, required non-paid vacation week off, performance appraisals seriously late to be effective. Layoffs used in lieu of strategic sound planning. If there is a strategy in the company, it is not cascaded or understood.

    New acquisitions sites needs lot of attention to become top class plants. But no help from Division leaders
