    Good Diversity,Pay benefits are very good,Highly Ethical company,Good HR policies.

    Cons

    Your growth totally depends on your immediate supervisor based on what type of personal relationship you have....he can promote individual or screw-up your carrier with out any subdue.Apex system is just showcase as well as main weapon of your manager...& he can use in both way either to protect you or he can used to spoil your career at Eaton .

    Advice to Management

    Be Flexible...don't go with the perception made by immediate supervisor.

    Pros

    Very collaborative, team-oriented, "get the job done" culture, with all levels - shop floor employees to Directors / VPs - working simultaneously to accomplish a task. Management takes an interest in your learning and grooms and mentors talent very well.

    Cons

    Being a publicly traded company with shareholders, there is a lot of emphasis placed on meeting monthly, quarterly and yearly targets affecting the profits and EPS. Message resonates from CEO to shop floor employees. Month-end, quarter-end, year-end is a particularly stressful time to meet goals, at any expense. This may not make the most sense to the overall income statement as much as it would to profit / EPS in particular (expediting shipments, overtime, changing schedule to favor high-revenue orders etc).

    Advice to Management

    Compensate employees for efforts better - inspite of being a "top performer" I was in the mid-range for my salary band and not given the highest performance rating, with no real reason offered for not getting this.
    None to few perks of working at Eaton

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent exposure to other businesses within the company

    Cons

    The working hours are long and tiring, and it is difficult to progress in your career since they require a fixed number of years of work experience in order to get a promotion.

    Pros

    Safe 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.

    Cons

    Leadership 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

    Advice to Management

    Already Had it by being upfront so no Advice
