Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at MTD Products full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great and talented people in the middle and lower ranks.

Cons

People's potential is limited by the inability of Senior Management to adhere to a strategy. Leadership can't break their own bad habits. CIO won't even use his own technology. In my time there, I never saw him articulate a clear vision of how technology can serve the company's objectives. Tons of in-fighting.

Advice to Management

Hire outside leadership to clean house of badly behaving executives.

    I worked at MTD Products full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, excellent work enviroment, training and opportunities. Upper management very involved in day to day activities, this allows continuous improvement and creates enviroment where those truely talented and dedicated do well. Wonderful cooperate campus. Lots of recreation opportunities on site. Fun employee activities on regular basis. Great HR staff.

    Cons

    Upper management very involved in Conservative politics and Catholic religion and will occasionally ask employees to participate as well. Politics and religion have little place in work place and can intimidate those that do not have same views. Not required to participate though.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employee feedback, limit politics and religion at work
