    Pros

    Enjoyed the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Need to increase pay for most positions. Benefits are a plus, but do not subsidize lower salaries. Was not developed as an employee. Had to take a position externally.

    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.
