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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Too much turnover, too little substance

    Former Employee - Operations in Highland, IL

    I worked at Cooper Industries full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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