Pros

When you put Black & Decker on your resume it gets respect and attention. It is widely considered a blue-chip company. In lower positions, olike channel manager, you will have an opportunity to learn the ropes-- good training.

Cons

In terms of work environment, I understand that in the last couple of years it has improved but the turnover at the top has been a turnstyle-- incredible velocity of new players--none groomed for the job. Especially true in marketing, a highly-fractured department.

Advice to Management

I have no advice for management. I need to write 20 words here and I guess the only thing I can say is that "Black & Decker management" is something of an oxymoron.

    Cons

    Highly bureaucratic
    Performance review process too generic
    One size fits all philosophy on corporate goals despite having diverse business units

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on the growth strategies but don't overextend the "cost synergies" from the recent mergers.
