    Pros

    Good salary
    Good people to work with
    Flex work schedule(best feature)
    Managers allow employees to try and dabble in other roles out of your own department.
    Good cafeteria at some locations.
    Lots of campus activities for employees to get involved in.
    HR is very helpful.

    Cons

    Location of some offices are in the middle of nowhere.
    Not very diverse but not too bad if you know how to blend in.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep move offices locations near metros to attract good talent. Eaton I truly believe is a great company but the locations of some offices are a huge turn-off for prospective candidates.
