    I have been working at Greenlee Tools full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great. You get paid decently for the short days.

    Cons

    Very Political in Management. No room for growth or moving upwards. Low pay, hires an inexperienced management work force. High turnover due to poor leadership on floor.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Greenlee Tools full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some great people here that want to see the company succeed

    Cons

    Horrible culture - not inclusive and lacks any sort of diversity. Wants to transform but no one is held accountable. Had such turn over in leadership, people no longer respond because they bank on new leadership to change the direction on a regular basis. No continuity. No such thing as a team environment, there is so much CYA that a person won't hesitate to place blame on another. There was no onboarding... process. You had to figure it out on your own without a lot resources willing to help you out.

    Strong products and known brand. Now part of Emerson family - better fit for growth now then when under Textron.

    Lacking Diversity - Caucasian Males dominate upper management. No collaboration - too departmentalized.
