    A good place to work for but be prepared to be surrounded by 'Type A' people!

    I have been working at Black & Decker

    Pros

    Good career path; compensation and benefits; talented people; the culture is very aggressive/competitive but people get things done.

    Cons

    The culture is fairly aggressive...the leadership team is consists of primarily Type A people but at the same time they are extremely talented/intelligent people - the Elites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take risk and lead! Be more open to changes.

    I worked at Black & Decker

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, allowed to check out display tools for personal use if needed, if you love tools, working with your hands, and dealing with customers up front as they walk through the door, you'll like working here.

    Cons

    Pressure to sell, too few hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people!
