Trying to get better but still a long way from it
eaton (Current Employee) – ohio – October 5, 2018
I think that they are trying to create a better culture but they are so far away from it. if you are a diverse talent I would think twice before taking a role with Eaton. Below will be some points as to why
1- the culture in Corporate is inclusive and trying to create more diverse culture, however, sites are so far away from it and most sites are remote with an almost no diversity.
2- bad managers everywhere, not to say that they don't have some outstanding managers that I have enjoyed and would work under any time. however, if you report an issue, expect retaliation and stonewalling your career as I said culture is not where they want it to be
3- you must relocate every few years or you will not progress
4- work-life balance does not exist the average week is 55 hours, and you will most probably work through your lunch more than take it
5- every plant I saw was severely understaffed and asked to stretch beyond their capacity, a lot of burnout employees
6- site have an extremely political culture that you will have to be aware off prior to making any moves
overall you will learn a lot but it will cost you a lot too, almost no time for family or time for yourself. very hectic and you will be covering works for more than 2 employees. I understand we have to be competitive however this is not competitive at the end everything is just getting half the attention it needs because everything is a priority and everything needs to be addressed right now.
You will learn a lot and you will have a brand name company
