    I have been working at Cooper Tire & Rubber full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall a decent place to work with less stress found at other companies. You are treated fairly and as a person, which is something that can't be found everywhere. Co-workers and managers for the most part are helpful and want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are average. You won't get rich, but you'll earn a fair wage.

    Company priorities are many, so getting resources or help can be a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Connect with your people more to understanding the problems we face. We choose to work here and not elsewhere.

    I have been working at Cooper Tire & Rubber full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, atmosphere, and standard/competitive pay. Very enjoyable, overall

    Cons

    A lack of decision-making by upper level management sometimes. Very conservative in thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your employees to test ideas (within reason) and see what happens. You may be surprised at the amount of talent and enthusiasm that could come out of positive implementation.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Low pressure, nurturing corporate culture. You're given the opportunity to succeed on your own - it's not force fed to you. The focus is on the team, not the individual. This creates a laid back, non-competitive atmosphere.

    Cons

    There are some very natural cons that go along with the pros that I listed. Things tend to move a little more slowly. The lack of individual accountability can be frustrating at times when it handicaps your own progress on things you're working on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Cooper is making steady progress towards becoming a more modern workplace - stay on that track. Help those that are resisting that to understand that in order to stay competitive with young, up and coming talent, there is no choice.
