Not a good company to start

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Pune

I worked at Eaton part-time for less than a year

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
