    Pros

    Cooper brands are well known, giving credibility to sales and marketing Heavy investment in commercial resources and strategies Make your sales targets, get a bonus and not worry about profitability

    Cons

    Strong emphasis on "innovation" without rationalization and support of profitable legacy products. Not much cross communication and collaboration between functions, silo mentalities. The sales people can pretty much do what they want and everyone else is left to pick up the pieces. Favoritism is rampant, constructive feedback and criticism is not welcome, independent and critical thinkers will not prosper, management is very shallow and doesn't see far beyond the current quarter. Sadly, the comments about executive leadership profanity, tirades and outbursts are true. Very much a shoot the messenger mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Eaton should assess all senior management and survey the business units about top issues. The Cooper approach sweeps anything we don't like to hear under the rug, or we punish the person that provides the feedback. Take the feedback head on and deal with it.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Good place to jump start your career. Operations and HR leadership programs are good.

    Cons

    Lack of cross-functional collaboration. No emphasis on teamwork. Many employees at various levels not appropriate for their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Improve team-work within the organization. Hire A players. Please invest more in training and perform better screening/evaluation of internal candidates prior to promoting them.

    Pros

    The work is fairly easy and there was always a lot to do. Most mid-level managers are good to work with and have a strong work ethic but need some development. The work environment is very customer driven.

    Cons

    There were too many open positions that management either did not want to fill or were unable to fill. Seems like it was a shell game trying to cover all of the openings with the same people. Very surprising that they could not attract people given the state of the economy.

    Advice to Management

    Decide what you want your business to be and build your team around it. Most people want to be a part of it but are tired of the sudden direction changes and last minute ultimatums.

    Pros

    Good work enviroment, flexible hours

    Cons

    No room for growth, very high turnover in all positions, understaffed in all departments. Almost impossible to get anything done

    Advice to Management

    Figure out and implement how Cooper Industires integrates with the divisions. Still running like different entities.

    Pros

    Real concerned about safety and the environment to the point of always being concerned about being sued all the time.

    Cons

    A strong armed management style that is relentless in making a person feel two inches tall with constant but subtle verbal abuse tied with strong profane language. Lead relentlessly complaining over issues

    Advice to Management

    Time for a top down change?

    Cons

    Job is stressful, they overwork you sometimes 60-70 hours a week with very demanding orders, management does not satisfy workforce and their desires

    There needs to be more incentive to listen to employees and work with them, they need to be more understanding and be less demanding of workload
