No opinion of CEO

Pros

Supposed to be a diversified player in manufacturing. Strong background in hydraulics engineering backed up with expertise across the globe.

Cons

Eaton is like this mirage that disappears when you go close to it. Atleast that's how the Service Centre out here works.

The manner in which pay cuts were implemented in 2008 left a lot to be desired. Most important, people were sacked on reasons the company deemed "ETHICAL". Employees lived under the constant fear of being fired, leading to drop in morale, motivation and eventually performance levels.

Advice to Management

Guys, get your act straightened up before its too late. Do not take employees for granted. Constantly involve/engage with employees across all levels. Stop being arrogant and high handed.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits are good, compatible with other Fortune 200's. Education reimbursement program is good. Salary is neutral compared to competitors. Ok place to start your career.

    Cons

    Don't expect to make much more money than your starting salary. Review system is a joke that is not used to make long term employment decisions. If you've shut down a plant somewhere you stand a good chance of getting a job. That seems to be the main requriement for employment.

    Advice to Management

    They need to practice what they preach. Local management says the right things but they don't practice "Core Values"

    Pros

    Eaton's workforce is committed to doing business ethically and 'the right way'. I am proud to have a career and with them. Managers are in continual review of your progress professionally and personally and are always in tune to making sure you are being challenged and are going after every opportunity for success possible.

    Cons

    As with any large company, you must be sure you befriend coworkers in other locations to be sure they support your initiatives when you need assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to follow up with your employees to ensure timely response and feedback of any issues they may have. The annual employee survey seems to be an extremely helpful tool for management. I do believe employee responses and feedback are valued and considered.
