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

Pros

It's easy to find waste everywhere that you can get rid of with Lean events, problem solving, and collaboration. People actually care about each other at the plant and for the most part respect one another kind of like a family atmosphere.

Cons

There is not a lean/six sigma mindset at the plant. Resistant to change for the most part. Hiring freeze is a pain. Understaffed Quality team.

Advice to Management

Place more of an emphasis on quality. Support a Lean/Six Sigma culture.

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

    Pros

    Our business unit specializes in software development, which means faster technology adoption. Smaller company feel. Not much micro-management.

    Cons

    Corporate is based on manufacturing, so sometimes there's strife between our needs and their policies. Global diversion has cultural difficulties as well.
