Does Stanley Black & Decker offer massages?

Pros

A few free coffees here and there, company car.

Cons

Entire teams have been hired, sacked/quit, replaced, sacked/quit in under a year. Diseased culture with lack of empathy and morale, favouritism, stuck in the dark ages both technology and mentality, your voice won’t be heard, hard to hit targets, horrible company reputation, 3x the price of competition, managers never lead from the front or practice what they preach, absolutely no team culture, offices are uninviting and lifeless - sometimes you even feel unwelcome. Company has delusions of grandeur regarding their brand name. They will tell you the weight of their tools division is a selling point and an indication of the quality of product and service, when in fact it couldn’t be further from the truth. The truth is, they have zero USP’s and so they rely on the brand name in order to scramble for an explanation as to why they are 3 times the price of every other competitor (who generally are able to offer the exact same product with a better level of service). The training is based around sales voodoo which has never been successfully demonstrated by any senior level employee or manager. They preach 1980’s window sales approaches and choose to abhor and trample any radical thinking or new ideas. Their endgame seems to be ripping people off with a huge margin and false promises and then spending months cleaning up the mess amongst an enraged customer. The managers don’t seem to do anything. Seriously. Their title is literally manager and they do anything but manage. They spend days on end in zoom and face to face meetings, achieving nothing except another meeting. They are more interested in rubbing the backs of those above them rather than developing their sales people and passing on their pains and ideas to the next level. Everyone is out for themselves. Anything you say out of line is perceived as “negative”, apparently nothing negative can be talked about because it will damage their precious egos. Stanley Security UK is on borrowed time. They’re growth plans are a joke.

Advice to Management

Listen to the ideas of your staff members instead of just doing the same thing, which ultimately gives you no profit. Invest in technology and actually study what the successful competition are doing. Stop acting like you care about staff and actually try caring, buzzwords and false promises aren’t enough. Would it kill you to organise a Christmas do for the sales people, not just the 100%ers. I don’t think you understand just how low the morale really is. STOP OFFERING INCENTIVES AND THEN NOT GIVING THEM OUT ONCE EARNED. It’s honestly like you want your people to feel like you don’t care, which is honestly how MOST feel. You won’t know this however, because they won’t be honest with you in fear of being blacklisted and edged out of the company. Stop relying on the branding and simply buying small companies. Look at your customer service. Get some decent lead gen on board. You have the biggest staff turnover I have ever witnessed. What’s the average sales persons tenure-1 year? Do something about it.

1) Overtime is required depending on work load, management makes the decision late in the week, usually on Friday. It’s difficult to make plans for weekends, but the pay is good.
