    I have been working at Eaton as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get plenty of time of. Standard 8 hour days. Managment is fairly good. My coworkers are great. For a sophomore in college they offer a pretty good salary, but no side benefits. Their internships are fairly nice.

    Cons

    Eaton's policies can be a little overboard. They seem to be too busy acquiring companies to actually grow their own company at a better pace.


  2. "Great office culture, but slow moving design cycle and excessive rigor due to new Eaton corporate wide processes."

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

    Pros

    The work hours are flexible and they allow tele-work. Good place to learn ANSI drafting rigor, PLM/PDM system rigor, phase gated design process. Chance to experience cradle to grave product process. Great co-workers everyone is very supportive of each other. Sense of team. Very mixed workforce of younger and more experienced engineers. Also the products you design are built onsite so that is very beneficial to an engineer who needs to learn the manufacturing processes and design for manufacture.

    Cons

    Recent roll-out of bureaucratic "one size fits all" processes aimed at risk reduction in the products have made the design process cumbersome. The extra rigor was not matched by an increase in headcount and therefore meeting the project schedules on time means the average engineer has to work 50-60 hours per week.

    Advice to Management

    Tailor the risk reduction processes to bring them inline with real world risk. Applying the full depth and all the checks and balances of the phase gated risk reduction process to a system that is not terribly new means lead times are growing and customers will stop coming back. Also, the extra stress on the engineering workforce will create excessive turnover. One size fits all processes cannot be applied company wide without some major tailoring. High level execs don't seem to understand this.
