    I worked at Cooper Industries full-time (more than an year)


    Talented people, very motivated by personal values


    Management driven strongly by financial results. Innovation, quality, customer service and even employee development (training) are left behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide your employees a better environment where they can perform, instead of demanding them profits and margins. The management should work for the employees, employees should work for the customers, then customers will provide the benefits to the management. At Cooper, employees must work for the management.
