    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Stanley Black & Decker full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Peers are great to work with. Lots of experience and generally the benefits and salary are fairly close to industry average for specialties.

    Cons

    Due to tough economy, bottom line and cost savings have moved into the head count. Former CEO's poor decisions in order to gain personal wealth have all lead to uncertainty in the work space.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the services provided by the people rather than just the numbers when evaluating whether a particular position is needed or not.

    I have been working at Stanley Black & Decker full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and salary are among the best around. Brand recognition. Stanley is self insured for health benefits, so employee contribution is only $275/month for a family of 4 with really good coverage.

    Cons

    There's always a vice president in charge of something position created every week. Not enough people in the field. Management in local office ranges to very competent but burned out, to do nothing and point fingers. NO employee recognition. No bonus or awards, even at end of year. Always reactive, not proactive. It's all about the numbers, not the people.

    Advice to Management

    Money to spend on NASCAR sponsorship and baseball banners, but NOTHING for the people who really make it happen. Come out and meet 1 on 1 with the people at "street level", you'll be surprised.
