      A Great Place to Work!

      Jun 20, 2021 - Manager, Total Rewards in Virginia Beach, VA

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      STIHL truly cares about their employees which is evidenced by their excellent benefit package and compensation. A 401(k) plan with a generous match in addition to an open, active pension plan are just examples of how STIHL continues to ensure that their employees are well cared for not only during employment but into their retirement years. Employees enjoy working in a beautiful campus with an onsite cafe and wellness center. Management is always working to ensure that communications with employees are timely and effective - and employee appreciation is shown through service award celebrations, all-hands meetings, picnics, and holiday celebrations as just a few examples.

      Cons

      I do not have a con - having worked in some pretty tough environments over my career, I very much appreciate where I get to go to work every day.

      Pros

      Good pay for supervisors, typically have weekends off. Ability to drive performance, solid group of supervisor peers to work with. Factory climate controlled, clean, great products produced in Virginia Beach.

      Cons

      Too many direct reports, hourly employees work excessive OT to support the business, high turnover in our hourly workforce. After supervisor, not much more room to grow, very few higher level manager positions.

      not a fan of working at STIHL

      Aug 2, 2021 - Anonymous Employee

      Pros

      Salary and benefit are okay. There is a lot of different work and it is interesting sometimes working with international offices. Also able to purchase STHIL tools at a discount.

      Cons

      The company doesn't have healthy work culture at least the department I worked at. Each team was against one another team instead of working together and most employees are not loyal to the company. There was no room to learn and grow for my success.

      Pros

      I can’t think of many. My colleagues are fun. Management is only out to cover their own butts so it makes my job of helping out employees very difficult.

      Cons

      Low pay. Poor training. Upper leadership has went downhill.

      Good, stable company with significant drawbacks

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The company is stable, and growing. It offers many opportunities for advancement, but you need to seek them out on your own.

      Cons

      Very political, many "chiefs". Many systems are written in stone and cannot be modified. Almost every process is locked down by IT. Some departments have little to no leadership. Low pay.

      Pros

      Pay and benefits, location. Strong growing private company

      Cons

      If you’re not management’s “favorite” or brown nosing, forget being promoted for your skills. As mentioned by others, if you’re not in the good old boys club, forget promotions.
