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.

    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Used to be a good place to work, but that really doesn't mean anything now. Eaton is a good company if you are an investor because they will do anything, including treating employees like trash to make the books look good.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Incompetent leadership seems to be a way of life at Eaton. We get ethics rammed down our throats but rarely see it demonstrated at higher levels. The outsourcing at Eaton is a big joke. Quality and community support take a back seat while supplier business is solely based on the lowest bidder. No raises, a month off without pay, massive firings and suspension of the 401K match have made for an interesting year at Eaton. Years with record profits bear no fruit for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach!
