No opinion of CEO

Pros

Most people are a pleasure to work with. Some are to be avoided. While many people have been with the company for a long time, it depends if you were part of a prior takeover or are an original Cooper employee..

Cons

Auto suppliers live and die on the demands and requirements of their customers. Economic times are very tough right now in 2008 and any loyalty to employees is forgotten. Everyone is on edge.

Advice to Management

I find it amazing that a Reward for years of service be given to an employee and then a few days later that same employee is walked out the door with no notice beause of a workforce cut back. While this may be the SOP for many companies today, it leaves many people with a bad taste for a company they were once proud to say they worked for. The "no notice rule" that is used today stinks.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The wages are good. The work isn't too difficult. The place is pretty clean. Most of the people are decent people and hard working. They are unionized.

    Cons

    Management keeps you in the dark. Communication is really bad between management and hourly and salary to salary. It seems salaried are working against each other instead of as a TEAM! The union is not very strong. There are quite a few people who need to be fired but are protected. I guess that is the downside of being a union shop. Management could be more appreciative of their hourly workers. A "nice job", or a "thank you" every once in awhile would go a long way.

    Advice to Management

    Be more forth coming with information to your employees. Don't treat us like we are stupid. You may be suprised by sharing that we all may come up with a solution.
