Pros

Local ownership with strong ties to the community. Giving people a chance to make a career by choosing people who would otherwise not be in their positions elsewhere.

Cons

Unwillingness to change. Loyal to a fault. Makes business decisions based on emotions and perception and not sound facts or business philosophies.

    Pros

    The company truly stands behind it Core Values (see Cope Plastics website) and is a very progressive and innovative company. During the 8 years I was employed by Cope Plastics I recieved 2 promotions; the company opened 2 new branch locations; the incentive plan for salespeople was enhanced to include more commission for higher margin sales; a bonus plan was added in 2006 and there was over 66% of profit dollars reinvested in the company.

    Cons

    There are some communication issues between manufacturing and sales which can lead to delays in shipping orders to the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Work on improving the lines of communication between manufacturing and sales in order to improve overall customer satisfaction.

    Pros

    The people that work at cope are like family. They are friendly and there is a good group of very hard working individuals who are always good to see on a daily basis. Cope plastics is always busy and are highly unlikely to have lay offs. Also vacation and personal days are very nice along with health care and dental plans, 401k and gym discounts.

    Cons

    The shop in the past year has been speeding up jobs and shorting workers quote times so much so that it feels like we can't ever win. No extra pay for more and more work with additional jobs such as sorting plastics, clocking in and out of everything you do. Extreme micro managing with time clocks. There is no recognition when you run better than quote daily. They don't even know. Very Short but payed 20 minute lunch you can't comfortably eat that fast.

    Advice to Management

    Please talk to the people on the floor more and get some advice how to change for the better and stop reverting to the same old way of doing things. Make life better for your workers and the workers will pay you back for the positive changes that you make.
