The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Like any business there is friction in the workplace. This was the same at eaton, however i noticed that people were alot more open about it and could talk through issues to reach an understanding.
Saying this the general atmosphere was amazing, i felt right at home.

The placement team at Eaton put together a great intern schedule. We had i believe 8 different training sessions where we met up with the other Eaton interns. There was a real sense that the intern team were focused on all of us to give any help/advice to whoever needed it.
