    Excellent Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSnap-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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk 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!

    Great place to work!

    ProsAs 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.

    ConsThe only con to me is the drive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep listening to the employees.

    Good solid company. They treat you well

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThings get really pretty good around here about 8 years ago when the board kicked out the good old boys and put in some people and processes that really made the company successful. The environment is nice, although the people are not ones I would hang out with, but that is because they are not my type, not because they are bad. They are very good with flex time and they don't make you think that you are doing a bad job if you need to stay home to tend a sick kid. Benefits are pretty good and pay is good too.

    ConsNot a lot of room for advancement. Most people who work here tend to stick around a long time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay for employee education. Even if it is not in the employees area of work, it can make them feel better about themselves and can also make that person more valuable even if they education does not directly impact.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
