Field service (Former Employee), Alberta – August 24, 2014
Pros: fare benifits
Cons: the office didn't seem to have control of the people
A complicated machine of a company. High demand electrical product which the company doesn't seem to be able to deliver to its customers on time on or to the correct design spec.
Working in the field I had to continually smooth out customer problems due to short shipment, incorrect design or warranty work.
If only these fundamental problems would – more... be resolved the job could be very interesting. A lot of out town work but the company compensated you well for that. Due to the complexity of the business model the management is not quite got a full control of the departments. It seemed that there was always a lack of people and job positions open yet not being filled.
I didn't always think that the company/area office played as a team, there seem to be a lot of back biting and people trying to stab you in the back, lack of co-operation between departs. – less
Engineer (Former Employee), Canada – March 10, 2014
Pros: friendly co-worker
Cons: an environment of distrust, backbiting and poor management all the way from the headoffice to the plant manager
Company not doing well, losing money. Products are not up to par, lots of customer complaints. Senior leaders of the organization are not present, don't hear from them and don't see them. They don't care for the employees. Cannot trust the managers at headoffice. This is a company that is very slow to react to problems. There is a culture of promoting – more... your terrible managers instead of addressing the problems. Very demotivating environment – less

Manufacturing Supervisor (Former Employee), Jackson, MI – August 20, 2014
Pros: they have a cafeteria on site, great and fun people to work with
Cons: a lot of mandatory overtime
From my first day to my last day at Eaton. I really enjoyed all the people I have the privilege to have worked with. I will miss all the food that we got to eat. don't know how I didn't gain any weight after almost ten years. The company showed a lot of respect to all the vets that they have working there, by having a veterans day with cake and ice – more... cream a long with everyone bringing in any memorabilia from when they served in the military. – less
Eaton is a blue-chip company that has been in business for over 100 years. It has grown through acquisition and expansion of existing model plants which brings challenges and opportunities to the work force.

The management team at my current facility is top-notch and are all driven and powerful leaders that I am confident will go far within Eaton if they choose to stay.
Most challenging part of my job is understanding various job skills-my position requires at a minimum a basic understanding of engineering, customer service, production, & SIOP, as well as a calm demeanor when handling supply chain problems on the back end (my supply base).
Most enjoyable part of my job is new technology roll-outs and seeing the future of flight in the world and knowing that I am helping bring high-tech products to market. – less
Sales Engineer (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – August 13, 2014
Great place to work. No one micro-manages, Eaton trust there employees to be professionals. Incentives are the only downfall, you are penalized for sucess. Meaning if you have a great year, the next year for incentives will be unattainable.
