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

    Pros

    Used be a collaborative and strong learning environment with great career outlook, but then all of the good HR employees left the company after several unwise leadership appointments.

    Cons

    Senior HR leader(s) don't understand how to manage people or provide coaching, but are very good at managing upward image. Focus on bringing in expat HR leaders who don't understand North America teams instead of promoting from within. Flattening of career path due to HR services implementation and reduced resources resulting in no upward mobility. Health benefits are ridiculously bad which the CHRO blames on a democratic government instead of taking accountability. Bad situation - you can certainly do better in this job market.

    Advice to Management

    Don't suck!
