    Pros

    None worth sharing they have ruined a good company with promoting horrible managers. If you want to judge their culture look at who they promote and who they let leave.

    Cons

    Eaton puts big posters on the wall telling you about their values, top leadership does the exact opposite. Leadership spends more time reviewing everything you do and micro managing your life they miss critical strategic opportunities to build the business. They are so focused on ROS they almost cheer when people choose to leave and if enough people don't leave they "restructure" the business getting rid of key personnel while keeping the management that's running the company into the ground. They have lost most of their plant managers in the Crouse Hinds division and don't have any quality engineers in the plant. Before I left they lost their lead quality manager. Despite not having anyone to run the equipment or a plan to get more people they spend money on equipment they have no plans to train anyone to run or hire a competent person to use. Manufacturing support is non existent they rely on making enough profit on one item they can send two for free to the customer and still make a profit.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe start adapting to EBS if you did what you say you are going to you'd be all right. Stop using the employees as a bank to line your own pockets with your bonus. If the business is in trouble you don't deserve a bonus. If you get one don't show up the next day with a brand new car.
