    Pros

    401k, benefits, company car, people you work with

    Cons

    Program after program to keep up with, making liars and cheaters out of good employees just to keep up with the next program. Methods based reviews. Sales and customer service are not 1st priority of management. People buy from people is an urban legend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the madness. Way too many programs, let the good employees do their job. So much fat in middle management needs to be reduced. 1percent raises are unacceptable. Our stock price is thru the roof, reward the people who make that happen. Morale is so low!!! There are so many hard working people that are miserable and do not want to come to work. Stop micro managing.

    Pros

    -With a college degree you can move up. The idea of being a DM or DSM is entirely possible.
    -Selling to painter's who I personally get along with very well.
    -Benefits package and 401K are two good reason to work for SW
    -Some lower level employees will usually become good friends

    Cons

    -Not moving up with out a degree. Maybe to assistant manager....maybe
    -Many people find it difficult to sell "paint". Paint is not a glamorous product. It has a lot of complaint and problems associated with it, and the prices keep going up.
    -I have been here 4 years and the communication and tension between upper management and store employees/sales reps is only getting worse.
    -Stay too long and you will turn into a "Sherwin Robot", (which some people are fine with)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think we need to find out what is important to keep this company successful. I feel like we dump money into pointless efforts. It will be harder to retain new employees for long periods of time if they see their SW elders so fed up with the job. I am new, awarded top gun, walked the stage, made bonus money, etc.. All that really doesn't matter. The younger generations are going to work jobs they want to, not because we have to. No extra vacation for the first five years is ludicrous, not to mention the even longer gap we must wait for not much later in our career. Get rid of the Amex and BlackBerry. Get VISA and iPads. Talk to your employees and see what will actually help them.
