    Good place to co-op!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIf the job is busy lots of OT and DT hours, good co-workers, challenging enough to always be learning.

    ConsLots of OT hours if you are working on a busy project, maybe too many for some people but I enjoyed it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe computer login system to access Eaton training materials was a bit too complicated and could use some improvement.

    Does not encourage diversity and inclusion and is not current.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Burlington, ON

    ProsThey offered a lot of training and development

    ConsWeak Managers. Leadership does not exist, micromanagement prevails. Not a company for new grads or young professionals. Very much an old boys club. This company is not open to diversity and inclusion, they do not walk the talk.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to keep up the competition and the market you need to keep up the times. You cannot live in the ways things were done in the past. A real shake up is needed in the management team to move the company forward.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
