    I have been working at Cooper Industries as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Executives are very connected to lower level employees and everyone is very connected.

    Cons

    They are being acquired by Eaton, so there is a little bit of uncertainty surrounding that transaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you are doing to make ALL employees feel valued.

    Current Employee - Product Marketing Manager  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Product Marketing Manager in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Cooper Industries full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
