I worked at Cooper Industries full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The work is fairly easy and there was always a lot to do. Most mid-level managers are good to work with and have a strong work ethic but need some development. The work environment is very customer driven.

Cons

There were too many open positions that management either did not want to fill or were unable to fill. Seems like it was a shell game trying to cover all of the openings with the same people. Very surprising that they could not attract people given the state of the economy.

Advice to Management

Decide what you want your business to be and build your team around it. Most people want to be a part of it but are tired of the sudden direction changes and last minute ultimatums.

    I have been working at Cooper Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work enviroment, flexible hours

    Cons

    No room for growth, very high turnover in all positions, understaffed in all departments. Almost impossible to get anything done

    Advice to Management

    Figure out and implement how Cooper Industires integrates with the divisions. Still running like different entities.
