I have been working at Mac Tools full-time (More than 5 years)
Company has the vast resource of Stanley Black & Decker behind it, so the benefits are second to none.
There are a lot of people in leadership positions who are there because they know someone, not because of their merits, and conversely, many with merits who were either dismissed or severely under-utilized. Many in leadership roles are poor leaders who do not focus on efficient processes, and often ignore constructive ideas from employees, which leads to a lot of waste.
Advice to Management
Manufacture more, rebrand less. Too much business with China is ruining the brand. Reward hard working and smart working employees, not just "friends" of management. Worry less about marketing the product, and more on building a better product that sells itself. Get people in the product management team who actually know tools instead of just being generic product managers who know just as much about tools as they do any other potential product out there. Mac Tools lacks a tool visionary, and hasn't manufactured an innovative or an original tool in decades because Mac lacks a "Tool guy" at the helm, such as Steve Jobs or Bill Gates for their respective industries. A person who will drive Mac to be leaders in the industry through industry knowledge versus a "Run the company by the numbers" mentality. As long as Mac just follows other companies, by definition, they can never truly be a leader. Mac has a technical support department, yet the product management side rarely consults them or listens to their advice, and they're not only the ones who are often Mac customers, but they're also the ones speaking to consumers and distributors alike. It's a poor display of hubris on the side of the product management team, and the products often suffer as a result.
