    I have been working at Cooper-Standard Automotive full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Growing profitable company. Top notch benefits, Pay is competitive very structured. Promote within, invests in people development utilizing mentors, training programs and tuition reimbursement. Fair and consistent across the board with following processes and procedures. Total Safety culture, safety of the employees, customers and vendors is #1 priority at Cooper Standard. Great work and family balance. Management from corporate to local levels are very approachable and listens to the concerns and suggestions of the employees. Team oriented. Very clean, whole plant utilizes 6S and is audited on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Gets warm on the production floor in the summer. Employee break area could use some updating. Some people complain about short lunch break but it’s paid and gets me home to my family sooner.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to work on employee engagement, listen to their feedback. Some areas of the facilities could use a facelift and updated.

    I have been working at Cooper-Standard Automotive full-time

    Pros

    Cooper Standard has lofty goals that the executive team is driving towards. I can’t tell you how we’re doing because we receive no communication from leadership. My co-workers and I have been told ‘it is what it is” by our Director. We’re given no opportunity to truly developed and the North American HR team is no where to be found…literally they’re never in the office. The entire Engineering team is middle age, white, males. There’s no diversity.

    Cons

    Too many 'managers', not enough 'workers'. Getting promoted is impossible if you aren't willing to kiss someone's butt.

    Advice to Management

    Your mission and values aren't supposed to be just a poster on the wall.

    Solid business that seems to be moving in the right direction. Several years of good growth. Top management is strong.

    Some of middle management is questionable but nothing unusual for company of their size.

    Pros

    I can't think of any.

    Cons

    Stay away from Global Business Services (formally Financial Shared Services). This is the worst department in the whole company. We are treated poorly and looked down on by everyone in the company. The pay is terrible and there is absolutely no room for advancement . Management is terrible and everything is a secret. There is zero communication with their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees. Not everything has to be a secret.

    Good work environment with friendly coworkers. Fast paced with various testing and equipment. You will enjoy working here. Good yearly bonuses.

    Cons

    There is a occasionally stress from emergency testing. You will need to be on your toes. This job does not seem to have an ordered means of advancement.
