Great culture. Corporate allow plant autonomy while still having overall oversight of KPIs.
Sold to Eaton. I am unsure of Eaton's culture as I have never worked there. Cooper Industries was a wonderful work environment. Hopefully that continues under Eaton.
Advice to Management
Allow plant autonomy while maintaining oversight. Understand that not all locations have the same exact requirements nor are at the same level of empowerment in the culture.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cooper Industries.
I came in for an interview with two managers and I was hired by one. I was walked through the facility to show the nature of the business and hired on the spot after answering a few manufacturing related questions. I was offered a very good salary and the Director of Manufacturing Engineering was an excellent person to work for. He was very knowledgeable and friendly.
I was offered a good enough salary that I did not need to negotiate. It exceeded my expectations and the former employer's salary by a long shot.
