I worked at STIHL Incorporated full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great Benefits,clean environment,good co-workers. Good pay if you can overlook management.

Cons

If you are a machinist,get ready to work for leads and managers that throw common sense out the window.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your workers that have years of experience and you will find it works out better for you. Quit putting too much work on a few select employees,while letting some get away with anything they want(like standing around talking in front of the few that work hard)!

    I have been working at STIHL Incorporated full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work load, very fast paced and interesting work, easier if you have an Engineering Degree. Travel opportunities abound.

    Cons

    Very harsh management, high turnover and no legacy knowledge sharing with new hires. Training is selective as far as the usable transfer of info. Senior management can be unreasonable and abusive and this trickles down thru the ranks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop management by fear especially with relocated employees. See the value in long term employees

    I have been working at STIHL Incorporated

    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 ManagementAdvice

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