    Pros

    - Good work/life balance
    - Ethics
    - Value professional and personal growth
    - Streamlined operations (and always improving) considering its a 100k employees business
    - Good employee evaluations

    Cons

    - No wage increase or bonus even for employees well above average at their evaluation. So no real incentive to over-perform.
    - Company struggles to keep earnings on target. So even if sales did not meet target, most employees won't get their yearly salary increase. Increases won't even cover inflation.
    - Uneven salaries across offices/locations.
    - Many silos still to be merged across acquisitions, but this is slowly improving.

    Advice to Management

    Have real incentives for over performing employees with outstanding achievements. Revise wage adjustments across locations esp. in Canada.

    Pros

    Good culture with can do attitude to get things done.

    Get the supply chain and logistics under one instead of being in the region to speed up the ONE Eaton philosophy.
