    Pros

    Glad to no longer be associated with this company.

    Cons

    Regret ever being involved with this organization. Experienced an environment of less than straight forward communication with employees. Direct questions often sidestepped or left unanswered entirely. This company views due diligence as the primary factor in managing personnel.

    Current Employee - Cooper Lighting Regional Sales Manager
    Current Employee - Cooper Lighting Regional Sales Manager

    I have been working at Cooper Industries

    Pros

    My position at Cooper Lighting has given me the opportunity to manage a $100MM+ sales territory just shy of my 30th birthday, and even thought the company was sold to Eaton Corp today I do not have a bad thing to say about the company. Are there the typical corporate headaches? Of course, but for the most part as long as you do a great job they let you do your thing. I am now looking forward to transitioning into an Eaton employee, and look forward to the opportunity to get into international sales with Eaton sometime down the road.

    Cons

    There is a lack of communication from the top down. Also, from a Cooper Lighting perspective we are perceived in the market as having low price product lines, but that is simply not the case. A poor marketing strategy set in place years ago built this perception that we cannot seem to shake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Creating a new ease of business strategy coupled with a new marketing brand will do wonders for the way Cooper Lighting is perceived in the market.
