    I have been working at Cooper-Standard Automotive full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large company with a solid track record

    Cons

    Company is very top heavy. Plants are run to lean in order to have more at home office. Corporate is very pro safety but plant managers are only focused on production and will not spend money for safety needs.

    Advice to Management

    Have less executive directors and more base staff to get things done. Ensure the plants have adequate staffing.

    I worked at Cooper-Standard Automotive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growing company. High commitment to the community. New leadership carrying out positive changes and bringing in new talent. Many hard working individuals actually care about getting things done right. Average compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Global company with small business mentality. Things aren't done right at many levels with the current management. Some managers are merely seasoned skilled workers who know nothing about managing others. Chaotic from time to time and the blames come down to the people, not to the system ran by the decision makers. Seen too many good workers burning their lives away for tasks that don't matter leaving no room for their professional development. Low satisfaction causes high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people first, respect them and strengthen their voice. Then they will be able to tell you where kaizens are needed.
