    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams (More than 3 years)

    Company has the right view moving forward; direct reflection on stock price.

    Job descriptions can change which makes it difficult to stay focused.

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time

    Pros

    Good place to learn industry basics.

    Cons

    No good long term path for scientists. Way too many middle managers which do nothing but create problems. Abuse from middle management caused suicide at my location.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of useless middle management. Treat scientists with pay and respect, nut useless rewards created by middle management.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities for young professionals with good pay and benefits. Opportunities for career growth are endless.

    Cons

    Corporate Headquarters is located in Cleveland, OH - it's a very sketchy city that can be scary if walking alone to your car after work.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to offer more executive positions at regional offices so people don't have to compromise their career goals in order to move away from the HQ location.

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Advancement, opportunity to run your own store, great people on a peer level and middle management. Fantastic training ground for your career.

    Cons

    Some people have been at SW forever. Can be staid and old fashioned at times. Some in upper management belong to the "men's club" - exclusive and untouchable.

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great bonus, opportunity to climb up the corporate ladder, on going training, great employee discounts.

    Cons

    Understaffed, labor intensive, cold calling, gossipy, and unprofessional store managers.

    Advice to Management

    Should have intensive training on professionalism among coworkers, train store managers on how to manage employees, and allow high volume stores to hire full timers with options to move up the ladder even if they do not have a college degree.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and plenty of opportunities for career advancement.

    Cons

    There is a lot of turnover in my dept. 40% of the employees have not been replaced, which means more work for the remaining staff. Some duties have been moved over to our Malaysia office, which has resulted in more work for the US Team.

    Advice to Management

    I don't believe the pay matches the level of work we do in our dept., but I have been informed that our concerns have been voiced to upper management.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, location above Tower City is nice

    Cons

    No real training or job parameters. No path to full time employment, will hire outside before interns.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a internship guide for corporate interns, that way you can cultivate talent. Hire from within first, otherwise interns are just taking up space.

    Pros

    A very positive working environment. A lot of room for moving up in the company. One of only a few companies that offers pension plus 401k.

    Cons

    Many of the starting positions entail working out of one of their stores (retail). Lots of people working for them, a little harder to make a name for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    No specific advice for management.
