    The Stanley merger has damaged Black and Decker. It will never be the same.

    I have been working at Stanley Black & Decker full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Career growth can be good if you are in with the right group.
    The equipment used for development and prototyping is modern and good quality.
    The people who get the work done work well together as a team.
    There is a company store and cafeteria on campus.

    Cons

    Conference calls consume your personal time away from work.
    There is constant pressure from upper management to shorten development time.
    Merit increases average about 3% and have been pushed out to once every 14 months
    Layoffs are common, which causes concern for job security

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are loosing experienced, well qualified people, because you are not treating people with regard to the effort that they put forth to make your salaries. Quit messing with our salaries so you can get a bonus. Look back a few years and realize that while the company may not have been able to give raises, people were still loyal and worked after hours. Look now, and you will see that few remain after 5:30.
