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.

    I worked at Cope Plastics, Inc.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Most of your coworkers are great. Very good benefits, salary is average for the industry. An excellent place to hone your sales skills in the industrial sales field

    Cons

    Too much red tape to try and get orders. Too many levels of management need to approve what you hired your sales people to do. Let sales do what they were hired for. Train your new people instead of just throwing them out to the wolves. Turnover is excessive right now. Cope is losing way too many people because the opportunity for growth is not there. Base salary is fine, but the opportunity to grow through commissions is difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have too many people in senior management that are making changes to put their stamp on the company. The family needs to get back to running the company and quit letting their subordinates ruin what they built. Go back to caring about your employees versus only the dollar
