    I have been working at Eaton full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reputable company
    Diversified portfolio
    Ahead of the curve

    Cons

    Not all facilities are tuned to corporate strategy.
    Aquired sites not brought to speed until they fail
    My site was never onboard with Eaton Culture, or One Eaton

    Advice to Management

    I worked at a facility which was purched from another company. Old management was retained because the site was very profitable, however, the site did not understand Eaton philosophy, and Eaton did not understand the site's prodcut lines. Over a period of 6 years, the site was beyone repair. Good people left, others were made to leave, HR did more damage by focusing on wrong aspects, the site went into a tail spin. Advice to management: Drop the sites which are not aligned with your portfolio and philosophy.

    I worked at Eaton as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people there were nice and the work was not extremely difficult. People were always willing to help if needed.

    Cons

    It was right after 9-11 and everybody was worried about losing their jobs. One day, management got everybody together and told us not to worry, they will not be having lay-offs. The very next day I got a phone call telling me not to bother coming back to work because I and many others were being laid off.
    Pay was low also so I wasn't really devastated that they let me go. I've moved on to bigger and better things anyway.

    Advice to Management

    DON'T LIE TO YOUR EMPLOYEES. THEY DESERVE TO BE TREATED LIKE PEOPLE TOO.
