    I worked at Sherwin-Williams as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    IT department is well funded and uses new technologies. Lots of opportunities for growth. You get to work with smart developers. Very flexible with hours and you will get very good work life balance.

    Cons

    Some times senior management/ developers seem to be frustrated. Not a lot of cons to write about. Overall a good company to work.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stability - company has been around for almost 150 years now. Employees have no complaints of the executive staff. Stock price is awesome, benefits are good. Location is easy (HQ) to get to, public transportation, car, few even bike!

    Cons

    Old ways, closed minded managers, little promotion of work/life balance, lack of training for advancement. HQ workforce does not represent US, OH, or Cleveland.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flex time is nice. Salary is competitive. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    It is very hard to climb the ladder if you're not a "chosen one". I've seen several people come in at an entry to mid level position and surpass tenured employees into management positions (across several departments). The tenured employees that aren't getting promoted all have one thing in common -- and by the title of this review, you could take a guess as to what that one common denominator is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider promoting people in a fair manner.
