Pros

Safe, comfortable environment (in my plant). Management seems committed to employee safety, and rewarding the workforce when safety or sales milestones are met.

Cons

Miserable, hot working conditions at an Eaton plant in this city. Office politics rules the day, every day. Subpar compensation... for the life of me I cannot understand how managers sleep at night during "review" season. Some of the best performers routinely get paltry 2% annual raises. This does not only apply to Eaton, but our CEO's total annual compensation is in the decamillions, which is completely outrageous, especially in light of the information from the previous sentence.

Advice to Management

There is such a thing as a bad customer. Heed the "80/20" rule; 80% of your headaches come from 20% of your customers... get rid of that 20%.

    Leadership at all levels. Exciting company that values its employees and has a vision of where it is going

    The locations of many of our plants in the US are in very rural areas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    The money was good and the overall experience was not bad.

    Cons

    The site I worked at had huge problems that I do not believe reflect on Eaton as a whole. The management at the site was incompetent and did not value the employees. They did not follow corporate directives and were horrible leaders. The management was made up of a group of people who worked together and it was very much an "old boys" network.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the site management at various sites, especially Beltsville, MD.
