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

    Pros

    Nice; area, campus, people, projects. Many engineering, and purchasing projects exist. High level of product specific focus internally and externally with supplies.

    Cons

    Management can be very harsh and critical. At times, department heads and/or international Stihl global plants battle with each other. This is encouraged by top management. This leads to very high level of politics and many headaches for mid to lower level office employees. Certain managers are not nice people (ex, they have been used by former employees mult times for work related issues and still work there).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Burnout level is high due to politics. Certain managers are in the positions they have not due to experience and abilities, but because they are bulldogs and fight to get the job done. Some managers, for example Planning Group, are absolutely horrible to work with. I wouldn't recommend my enemy interact with that person. Overall good company, but step carefully.

    Pros

    STIHL has an unbelievable team spirit. Benefits are unbeatable as is the product. It's really nice to work for a company producing the best on the market.

    Cons

    It's a no nonsense place to work. STIHL is a lean company and expects a lot out of employees. Nothing unreasonable, but the company does expect hard and smart work out of you.
