* In a typical day at Eaton the most important is to assure that all the variables are working properly in order to accomplish the daily production load and quality specifications. * I learned that always thinks can be improved. * In the management is very important to be align the business needs with metrics and daily activities. * The co-workers must be part of your project plans and me of them. * The hardest part of the job is when the changes does not depend of your direct actions. * The most enjoyable part is when you get the results with the combination of a a good project plan and execution getting the business goals and the team well-being.
Excellent training and development plan for employees
Constant changing environment but a fairly stable job
Product Specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 January 2016
It is just like any other job, love hate relationship. Sometimes you are just too busy and sometimes, there is nothing to do. I learnt about marketing, technical support and I also learnt some project management. There was not too much management involvement that affected me, I felt like I was responsible for myself most of the time as the management team did not deliver the messages I had. Sometimes, co-workers will take advantage of you and give you more responsibilities and management will do nothing to change that. Adapting to the environment described above can be tough but it is a good company overall but there were no job advancement for me and I could not get any other positions with the company. I enjoyed spending time with some of my co-workers and customers, a lot of communication skills are needed and I felt like I developed a lot of it with my position. They advertise themselves as having competitive salary but it is not.
co-workers taking advantage, no motivation, blaming others

Field service (Former Employee) – Alberta – 24 August 2014
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 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.
The office didn't seem to have control of the people

Engineer (Former Employee) – Canada – 10 March 2014
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 your terrible managers instead of addressing the problems. Very demotivating environment
An environment of distrust, backbiting and POOR management all the way from the headoffice to the plant manager
