I worked at STIHL Incorporated full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Nice; area, campus, people, projects. Many engineering, and purchasing projects exist. High level of product specific focus internally and externally with supplies.

Cons

Management can be very harsh and critical. At times, department heads and/or international Stihl global plants battle with each other. This is encouraged by top management. This leads to very high level of politics and many headaches for mid to lower level office employees. Certain managers are not nice people (ex, they have been used by former employees mult times for work related issues and still work there).

Advice to Management

Burnout level is high due to politics. Certain managers are in the positions they have not due to experience and abilities, but because they are bulldogs and fight to get the job done. Some managers, for example Planning Group, are absolutely horrible to work with. I wouldn't recommend my enemy interact with that person. Overall good company, but step carefully.
