    Pros

    I worked at Cooper before and after their acquisition by Eaton Corporation. Cooper was an awesome company with great leaders, a great culture and good benefits.

    Cons

    Culture changed when acquired by Eaton. Too many committees now and red tape. Hard to get anything done.

    Advice to Management

    Management is all gone, so any advice I could give would fall on deaf ears.

    Pros

    Having started in customer service the opportunities for training is vast.
    Great pay and benefits.
    Support from management in seeking advancement in employment and personal growth.

    Cons

    With strict rules in place since the merger with Eaton it has made it difficult to further a career with the company and though I have years of experience with the company and management has been very supportive I am unable to be a candidate for other areas of employment without a Bachelors degree.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage employees to reach for their goals!

    I worked at Cooper Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cooper is now EATON Corporation and has a very large presence in the world. travel to the other countries was part of the exciting work. The salary was good for the job I did. Exciting work, training an enthusiastic group of people even with language barriers.

    Cons

    Excessive amount of travel , takes a toll on your physical being and family life.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your employees like an old shoe only to be discarded at will. Take care of them and respect their family needs when they are taking care of your business needs. These long travel times and separations do affect peoples lives and causes upheavals due to breakups, separations and divorces..... Allow people to recover from jet lag and don't expect them to come to work the very next day after their return from travel to distant places.

  9. "It was a pretty good place to work but can get laid off easily."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    It was a good job if you're more of a loner or just like working by yourself. You have ear plugs in all day and just pack parts. It's really simple but you do need to pack a lot so you can't really slack off. You get a ten min break before your lunch break then you get a twenty minute lunch break.

    Cons

    The job was very repetitive. You just stand there for 8 hours and count parts and pack parts. Makes for a long boring day sometimes.
