    I have been working at Cooper Tire & Rubber full-time

    Pros

    Cooper has a pretty laid back midwestern culture. Jeans day every Friday if you donate $2 to charity. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. Can't ask for a better work/life balance. Investment in innovation is growing.

    Cons

    Management is pretty risk adverse. Located in a pretty small town so can be hard to integrate if you relocate.

    Pros

    It has been a good place to work except for the last few years thanks go out great management.

    Cons

    They can't get anyone to work here because of the two tier pay scale for the hard work unless your maintenance. You got it made then.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the two tier pay scale.Your already saving money on not paying overtime with the 2-2-3 work schedule.

    Good benefits, holidays, hours, automotive, engineering, coworkers, location,

    Management seemed to be stuck in the 60s. Lots of old school mentality. Lots of favoritism and rewards for suck ups and brown nosera.
