    I worked at CooperVision full-time

    Pros

    Food is brought in often, snacks are always there, the fridge is always full. The receptionist is nice and people are generally pleasant.

    Cons

    The EA to the president is, to put it lightly, a piece of work. The president is not pleasant or approachable in any sense. The other management is also detached entirely. The pay for the Silicon Valley is abysmal. Great benefits package, but other than that it's not worth growing a career here. There is no growth for internal employees.

    Advice to Management

    From another review, I will echo this: "Management has no clue of "Who, What, Where and When". Disorganized and failure to plan correctly. High school atmosphere with lack of respect to employees and other department members . Don't expect your employees to utilize skills that Management lacks. Management needs to review and follow company ethics (not follow "Do as I say, not as I do")"

    Pros

    Thorough onboarding process, strong tools and new products available for sales growth of territory, solid upper management who listens to and asks for sales force input, a lot of resources available to achieve growth, friendly coworkers, great benefits package. This company has a great reputation with our doctors/practices!

    Cons

    The quotas are rolling so if you don’t put in the work to make up loss in prior quarters it becomes difficult to catch up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the sales force, implementing new competitive programs regularly helps us all achieve our goals.

    I have been working at CooperVision full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits package, 401 K match, and fitness program.

    Cons

    No career advancement, Played head games with employees who were eager to learn new skills. Penalized for calling in sick or family emergency. Nitpicking at all aspects of the job with lack of training to correctly perform the job. Management needs to be in tune with employee needs to complete all tasks associated with the job and not ignore requests for help. Lack of maturity and fair judgement is common among current managers. Company does not execute new products in a timely fashion, always delays or excuses for delays which only confuses or angers the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Management has no clue of "Who, What, Where and When". Disorganized and failure to plan correctly. High school atmosphere with lack of respect to employees and other department members . Don't expect your employees to utilize skills that Management lacks. Management needs to review and follow company ethics (not follow "Do as I say, not as I do")
