Executives, especially the CEO, continue to be overpaid while employees and former empolyees struggle

(Former Employee) Kenosha, WI

ProsFacility in Kenosha is decent. Area is a good place to raise family.

ConsMorale extremely low, no work-life balance, employees get to read about overpaid senior executives while watching their co-workers lose their jobs and their homes. Sadly, so many families ripped apart due to work stress and/or lay-off stress. There is no way that the performance of the company can be attributed to the "talent" of one man. Snap-on is the only game in town and the employees give blood just to keep their jobs. The employees are the real reason for the company success, not the greed of the CEO. If you become disabled while employed there, their insurance company will take ALL of your dependent benefits from SSDI to pay themselves back for your benefits: this is in place because senior management decided to take a discount on premiums. Yes, this info is in teeny, teeny print on the benefits statement. What does the CEO care if a disabled employee can't send their children to college? If the company did not take the premium discount, thereby allowing disabled employees to keep their dependent SSDI benefits, the CEO would still find himself highly overpaid. That extra money in his pocket will make little difference in his life, but that employee's ability to send his/her children to college will make a huge difference in their's. So sad that the greed of the CEO has outweighed his concern for his employees, their families and the communities in which they live.

Advice to Senior ManagementWant to watch morale and performance go way up? Take reasonable salaries, bonuses and stock comp for yourselves and ensure that more employees get to keep their jobs and their homes. Let them have work life balance so they can be there for their children.

While you may be able to manage by fear and continue to replace burned out employees with anyone who desparately needs a job, what legacy are you really leaving? You are already set for life: give others a chance to have some work/life balance and be their for their children, their parents and their community. Don't you want your life to have meaning other than money?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
