    I have been working at CooperVision full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Plenty of work on the plate to do but not sure if I am still going to be on the team with all of the changes

    Cons

    IT has become Xerox IT, it's all who you know to be on the in. If you are not on the Oracle project, you fear that you will be let go.

    Advice to Management

    Give non-Xerox people a chance to be involved and stop the good ole buddy system. Stop sneaking around and allowing the bad behavior to continue (swearing, rudeness, lying, different rules for the people who aren't the favorites).

    Former Employee - Clerk I in Rochester, NY

    I worked at CooperVision full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work is super easy, largely independent, will work with you if you're going to school

    Cons

    Management is sometimes unrealistic in their expectations

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that actually keep the company running, they know their jobs better than you. Implementing theoretically favorable policies would fair better after review or piloting by those you expect to execute said policies.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at CooperVision full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Thriving, growing company. Modern offices

    Cons

    Recent changes in management are having a negative impact on the team. Low moral and managers that do not understand the functions of the job and therefore are holding the company back.

    Advice to Management

    Employ forward thinking managers who will lead the team better. Listen to your current staff

    Pros

    CLEAN and Dry and regular income

    Cons

    • Does not encourage or support individual development. Employs based upon personal bias and 'daily mail' style misinformation. Employees actively segregate themselves according to ethnicity or protected characteristics. People are ridiculed, derided and routinely segregated, either by themselves or the organisation based upon gender, sexual orientation, education, religion, appearance and then race and ethnicity.... • The organisation is in no way set up to cater for the openness of todays youth becoming tomorrows employees. “What is inclusiveness” is a feeling in the organisation rather than an encompassing of the ideals of inclusivity. “We are inclusive but not fully”! • Nothing about the advertised organisational culture and expected behaviours is reflected by line managers and senior - as a result there is minimal uptake of the shop floor staff. • It looks bright, happy and encouraging organisation from the outside, but it is generally demoralising with little task autonomy, trust or proper training and development to deliver the desired core behaviours and understanding to its employees – There is no value placed upon the workforce. • Bullying and abusive behaviours can be experienced from Senior Management, Management, Shift and Line Management, Technical and Shop Floor Level employees – I have witnessed them without the courage to step in and experienced it myself, first hand from all. Referring to the fear of repercussion if you step in. This has been rife and spreads like a virus throughout the ‘gossip’ channels all of which desire something negative to broadcast about someone – the people don’t seem to be able to operate with out being negative to or about someone else in the organisation • Penny pinching to gain big bonusses is an attitude, although much of the equipment used requires a huge overhauling if production is to continue more than a few years safely, it is on the brink of a cataclysm of H&S issues and there will be a scapegoat, for sure – it is the norm. • There is a fear to report anything, even by the anonymous reporting scheme - it is investigated, tabloid style, to discredit and highlight the reporter as opposed to addressing the issues. • Basically – Work here is you need a role, but don’t plan you career around it unless you really know how to network effectively – only this will work within the CV Click.

    I worked at CooperVision full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Cooper WAS a good place to work. More suitable for people who are looking to get their feet wet in production. Benefits were great, and the growth in product is there. The more long termed management are great but they are moreless on the way out

    Cons

    There are many more cons then there are pros. Management doesnt acknowledge your effort and the work you do. HR is a revolving door and are way 1 sided. You need to kiss butt just to keep your head above water. The pay sucks, You might make 16 bucks after 15 years but dont count on it. All reviews are no more the 3% raises. If your sick 3 days a year you accumulate points...too many points and your fired.

    Advice to Management

    What's the point, you dont listen to your employees anyway

    I worked at CooperVision full-time

    Pros

    Food is brought in often, snacks are always there, the fridge is always full. The receptionist is nice and people are generally pleasant.

    Cons

    The EA to the president is, to put it lightly, a piece of work. The president is not pleasant or approachable in any sense. The other management is also detached entirely. The pay for the Silicon Valley is abysmal. Great benefits package, but other than that it's not worth growing a career here. There is no growth for internal employees.

    Advice to Management

    From another review, I will echo this: "Management has no clue of "Who, What, Where and When". Disorganized and failure to plan correctly. High school atmosphere with lack of respect to employees and other department members . Don't expect your employees to utilize skills that Management lacks. Management needs to review and follow company ethics (not follow "Do as I say, not as I do")"
