    Pros

    I do not have anything good to say about Eaton for I feel that we have become a second rate company since the acquisition of Cooper Industries. We were told that this was a merger, but I don't agree with all the secrets and the covering of the Cooper Industries logo.

    Cons

    We are a legacy Cooper facility. Our pay and benefits have been drastically affected by the acquisition of Cooper Industries by the Eaton Corporation. We have become so overcrowded and disorganized since the takeover. I feel that we have lost that small family atmosphere. Eaton makes me feel like a number instead of somebody. I think Eaton is too big. Monopolies will tend to fall in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Treat employees like human beings. People should be more important than profits.

    Pros

    Pros: you work with good people in your department.

    Cons

    They promote the wrong people. It's all about who upper level management likes, and not about who works hard and knows the job. There is no work life balance, it's all work. In my department --they demand that you work obscene hours a week because they are so short staffed. Management will walk by and not acknowledge you. HR is not any better. I would not feel comfortable going to them with any issue/problem that I had. The main problem is the highest level management has no clue what is going on with their company, because if they knew the conditions they would be outraged. It is truly an unethical company that prides itself of being ethical.

    Advice to Management

    Management is the worst part of this company. Pull it together. Half the managers don't do work. Don't speak to their employees and especially don't know the job. Management makes the company look bad. Take time and speak to your employees, and not parading around and leaving early.
