    I worked at Eaton (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are interested in earning money, they have lots of overtime.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime, work life balance is touted, however, it is not encouraged.

    No clear direction from management.

    Advice to Management

    Create a atmosphere where there is accountability at all levels. Make goals the same/similar. It is difficult to feel you are doing the right thing if the plant manager and general manager do not agree.

    Pros

    Most of the co-workers were absolutely fantastic to work with.
    Benefits in the place were actually fairly decent.

    Cons

    Companies politics are awful.
    Care more about the money they earn than their customers, and their workforce.
    Communication skills are poor. Often learned things at the very last second.

    Pros

    No pressure. Coworker is easy to get along

    Cons

    Hired engineer with wrong skill set.How we hired these engineer is beyond me. Management cut corners to meet schedule. No career growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Hired employees with the right skill set. Too many management to tell engineers how to do their job.

    I worked at Eaton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's good for some perks like they help you pay for your shoes and gem memberships. They have ok benefits and ok pay.

    Cons

    You can not grow in the company unless you are buddy buddy with the right person and or sleeping with the right person. If you are not one of the two you are treated like a dog and is hard to get anywhere. They have this think called umbudds that you can call. But if you do they find out you did and find reasons to fire you. If you get hurt they blame you. And every time you bid on a better position and don't get it they tell you " you don't have enough experience " . If you do get it they don't pay you for it. And hire inexperienced people out of the company if you don't get it. If you try to talk to HR they just say I'll look into it or the other will roll there eyes at you. I stayed way to long at this place because of the pay and put up with way to much. Some of the things that go on in this place is wrong and they get away with it. They do not follow there codes of ethics. My advice to anyone is to not work at Eaton Electric in Cleveland TN.

    Advice to Management

    They need a all new management crew the one that have been there more than 20 years ran that factory and get away with murder. Only there buddies can get anywhere and get away with sexual harassment and discrimination
