    I have been working at Cooper Wiring Devices full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Steady pay, nice location, thats all folks!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Cons

    I have seen employees not work for a whole week, management did not even know someone was absent because he never worked. The new HR manager just conducted a rookie "rif" reduction in force. Removed the talent, (she even misspelled "manager" in her signature "MANGER"- claimed seniority when removing people- but not true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most have only had one job- favoritism during latest reduction in force- you removed tool room employees that did all of the work! this will be obvious in a week. Many engineers, skilled workers are now planning to leave (fyi) This company will capsize and be gone in a year. Employees will not talk about problems because of the intimidation and unethical behavior of outdated managers.

    Pros

    The Cooper name carries great strength on your resume but it will come with a price.

    Cons

    The management team has a lot of politics and the VP of Marketing and Sales,Rick Pabst, is not qualified for the role he is in and is personally responsible along with the president of the company, Laura Ulz, for losing over half of the companies sales in the retail and distribution channels in 2012. The company was just acquired by Eaton and most likely this division will be sold off or merged in with another divisions. The lower level management team for the most part are good to work for but they have no authority to make any discisons making it tough to have an impact on the business. Out of the other Fortune 100 companies I have worked for the company unfortunately ranks last.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Long term sucess cannot be obtained if short terms goals are the only focus. The customer must remain the primary focus. Price increases, sku deletion, etc are inevidable but it can't be at the cost of the customer and sacrificing their relationships for short term gain.
