    Pros

    Work is steady as it's climb to grow the company. A great focus on ethics. There are lots of opportunity for growth - since there are lots of needs. Once you are found to be 'top-talent', you are given many great learning experiences and can do some really amazing things. Culture of the company is very relationship and people centric - so please go to the mixers and off-site meetings - that is where the work and network really occur.

    Cons

    Most everyone wears several hats, and are extremely busy. Most people once they hit management barely have time to check email. Eaton is so focused on supposedly growing generic talent that each person has a rotation in each product line, marketing, engineering, and operations, which causes stagnation of innovation (because you have no experts) and alot of duplication (since again there are few people that really know) and which causes the following issues: The technology in their bread and butter products is yesteryear, though stable - and since Eaton is conservative, very rarely shake things up - do not expect them to really lead anything. Eaton also has as a very naive opinion of the power and business of software - something that is not likely to change in the next decade.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the push for excellence - but please surround yourself by more passionate people for their expected role!
