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

    Pros

    Compensation is reasonable. Local group is a wonderful bunch of talented engineers. Sales and product management team are a motivated and well led group that communicates well with engineering. Local HR is world class, compassionate and also no nonsense.

    Cons

    Corporate tends to ignore staffing recommendations of local group. We are regularly forced to do more with less. Current restructuring plan is poorly planned.

    Advice to Management

    When staff is consistently trimmed we might look better for this quarter, but in the long run are suffering. Quality is suffering, new product development is suffering.
