Pros

Great product, strong brand, great benefits (incl. company health center), excellent president.

Cons

Strange that the last two positive management reviews were posted just after upper management found out about the negative reviews on this website....
Purchasing and engineering jobs are brutal which is reflected in the high turnover rate among purchasing and engineering jobs. Departments work against each other rather than together. Key managers try to out-do each other rather than having the best for the company in mind. Top management has zero trust in their middle management and micro manages all decisions.

Advice to Management

Promote team work between the departments and start trusting the people you hired. Set realistic goals.

    Pros

    I enjoy the closeness that the employees enjoy with supervisors and management team. Management is approachable and has an open door policy the employees enjoy and take advantage of. I always feel as if I'm coming home when I come to work.

    Cons

    None that I can think of; I am very content. Well, only the fact that we do not have a Starbucks Cafe on premises to get my regular java jolt.

    Pros

    I am thankful every day that I get to work with amazing professionals producing and distributing amazing products. I get to do work that constantly pushes me to be better every day and in the process meet truly remarkable people all around the world. I spend my day in a professional and positive work environment. The company believes in employee development and I have no shortage of opportunities to improve myself through company provided training as well as support for outside education I want to pursue. The company is privately held by the Stihl family, and those family values show up throughout the company. I have fun at my job and receive excellent pay and benefits in return. For the most part I like everyone I work with, and everyone seems to understand what the common goals are that we work towards. Can't ask for more than that.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work.
