A place with utmost office politics at senior level
Manager (Former Employee) – Eaton India Innovation Center Pune – March 10, 2018
The Eaton India Center in Pune is a engineering product development center for all the business segments of Eaton and has in past few years grown in numbers in addition to a new site with good infrastructure and labs.
While the center claims to transform from Engineering center to innovation center, nothing as such has changed in terms of content and scope of the work (primarily basic CAD, application engg and platform support) since the leadership remains the same with the same age old orthodox ways of management.
What works here is being politically in inner circle of a few global leaders. While the company pays fairly well, growth does not happen as a function of performance, but a function of the closeness to few decision makers.
A coterie of few experienced individuals (claim to be leaders) who are in the system for 10-15-20 years, manages the show. They act as opinion makers and a conduit to the senior management in providing the intelligence about what's happening on floor.
While they hire good talent (lateral, campus), they are not able to retain and groom the same due to - politics and poor quality of the overall work content that provides minimal learning and growth opportunities.
Managers mostly spend time in meetings or in preparing presentations for 2 level ups who use the presentations to keep further two level ups happy with glorified stories. Most of managers are operations managers, NOT engineering managers, and hence obviously the culture is to "manage" the show and not to "innovate thru breakthru technologies".
Mostly people decisionsmore... are taken based upon the collective perceptions of a few "inner circle" individuals and not based upon entitlement or performance.
While globally it's a great company with good products and technologies, the Pune center does not really reflect the same. If someone is very savvy and great at interpersonal relationship management, and upward management this could be a great place to work!less
- Great infrastructure, competitive compensation, employee friendly policies

Functional Materials Manager (Current Employee) – Pune – October 30, 2017
It was good to work in Eaton as an organization, it is situated in Pune and got opportunity to work in US and Europe, its culture is good leaving some exceptions. We have flexible timing in Eaton, but over a years the job get monotonous and stagnant. Good system and processes. The management need to have more decision making competencies. The hardest part of job was no support from manager. Enjoyable part was team and role.

Engineer (Former Employee) – Pune, India – October 1, 2017
My 2 years of experience working in Eaton was extremely valuable in terms of professional growth. I worked on providing new engineering design solution to companies products from various fields ranging from electrical circuit breakers, superchargers or hydraulic piston pumps. The management at Eaton was helpful and motivating to challenge your limits. The workplace also conducted fun at work activities which kept the working environment relaxed. I would definitely recommend this workplace to a friend.
Sr Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Pune, Maharashtra – September 4, 2017
From the beginning I have heart that Eaton is one of the best company to join but after joining Eaton, I think it's one of my worst decision in my career, There is no ethics at all for work life balance, you will hear about ethics and laws only in monthly meeting, no Holidays in calender years , yes you are right no Indian nor for any other countries, for back office, and it's one of the worst thing you cannot enjoy you own festival nor others, Managers over here are fully doing macro management, so guys think before you join Eaton.
Average pay, work from home facilities
Politics, macro management and no work life balance at all
