Pros

As employees we are allowed to challenge the status quo. Snap-on allows us to think for ourselves and to bring new ideas to the table. Management seems to take the time to listen to our concerns.

Cons

The only con to me is the drive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep listening to the employees.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Morale 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 ManagementAdvice

    Want 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?

    Pros

    work culture is open and fair. They are working on advance products and technology. lots of opportunity to have personal growth. Nobody like to stick more than 8 hrs a day

    Cons

    The professional growth is limited specially if you are looking for the growth in management. They are very conservative in their hiring approach.
