    Pros

    Large company with many options for relocation if desired.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy, and too many projects, all with too many agendas that don't always align.

    Advice to Management

    If you say people are your greatest asset, treat them as such.

    Pros

    Pay is good. Large company with lots of technology.

    Cons

    Eaton likes to push their corporate structure and policies on even small divisions. Other global companies I have worked for have let smaller divisions have more control and autonomy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging.
