    Eaton Values are only for record , but it is different out there

    Head Purchasing VGI (Former Employee) Pune

    ProsSafe Heaven for Underperformers ( Lot of Sand Bagging in Goals) provided you along good with your manager. Moderately competitive Remuneration to Market . If you are afraid of taking onus of your decisions , best place to work as all decisions are either top driven or are made over collectively.

    ConsLeadership here is busy in promoting himself/herself , so do not bother them with your issues
    If you are a domain expert , chances of your decision getting implemented are as strong as others in your team who do not know much because "calibration" is the DNA of Eaton's Decision Making
    Undue Focus on Employee Satisfaction Index and Managerial Effectiveness , hence very tough life for Manager of People. You can not afford to rate your subordinate for underperformance as Manager of Managers shall make the buck stop at you as his numbers of ESI & ME need to be correct.
    Skip Levels for MOP's are only for the record , actually they are mot meant for you. Never believe the Ombudsman Process , they are there only to facilitate your Leaders' Motives

    Not a good company to start

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Pune

    ProsGood learning opportunity, great work-life balance

    ConsNo proper HR processes, managers are arrogant and think too much of themselves, present employees vent out their dissatisfaction, no competitive environment and people are more concerned to go home.. Too informal culture

    The project which I was told at the beginning was vastly different from what I did; so preparation was rendered useless.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet processes right and hire from Tier 1/2 B - schools and not Tier 5/6 B - Schools.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
