    Highly political environment that can inhibit good decision making

    As a public company the focus is always on quarterly results. Would be beneficial to occasionally spend time on longer term strategies.

    Pros

    Snap-on has great people that I do enjoy working for. They take care of their people and it is one of the reasons I've stayed with the company. They strive to coninually improve processes an I appreciate the corporate support in continually refining procedures and any issues that may arise.

    Cons

    Org structure confuses sometimes. Communication doesn't always flow as it should. Some are just better at it than others it seems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask yourself is this meeting necessary and then ask if everyone absolutely has to be there. Keep asking your employees for ideas and information and continue to value those opinions, they are shooting you straight!

    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.

    I have been working at Snap-on

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, Guaranteed 40 hours a week, Awesome coworkers, Pay not bad, Lot of OT.

    Cons

    Hard to get ahead in the company, Once your hired in the company you can't bump a temporary employee from 1st shift to 2nd. I was hired on 1st shift and that's why I took the job because I wanted 1st shift but about 6 months after getting hired into the company I got transferred to 2nd and that is not the shift I had put in for and it also took me 18 months to get hired into the company. I was a temporary employee for 18 months. Also it seems hard for some management to say Job Well Done to their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees know how much they are Appreciated......
