    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fair salary, opportunity for training and education. Self management

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Promoting of low level team to senior managers with no management experience in Corporate IT. All about self promotion and advancement. No collaboration or teamwork. Decisions made in a vacuum. No loyalty to staff. Very vendor focused. Department split and reorganizing, very chaotic.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the people that have been there. Show loyalty to the employees. Create a plan and manage to it. Create consistency in project management.

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great medical and dental/vision benefits. If you are a new employee vacation time would be less but if you have been there for at least 10 years then you are looking at 20 days excluding sick time off.
    Fitness center on site (if you are at HQ) which is very reasonably priced and easy to access.

    Cons

    Old boys club and I don't see that changing any time soon which is why I decided to leave. A lot of incompetent managers and leads which calls for frustrated employees and less-than-desired productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Please, do promote people with proven leadership skills as well as those with at least a BA degree to Director positions!
    Also, the 2-3 day management course you offer to your 1st line managers is not a substitute to a degree in Business Management! It's a slap in the face of those employees who have paid to study that discipline in college and didn't get the opportunity.

    I encourage you to review the skills and education of your Senior level management and up just so you can see what % of them are skilled enough to hold those positions.

    Emotional bullying and harassment is very much so alive within the offices of downtown Cleveland! Don't turn a blind eye, do something about it before you find yourselves in the media's eye for the wrong reasons!

    You continue to allow for great talent to walk out of your front doors while you keep the 'bad paint' in! You pay for their college education, spend $ to train them and then wave them farewell....what a parody!
    If you manage to keep those resources in, your financial results will not only change for the better but will surpass your expectations because productivity is tightly linked to the type of employees you seem to continue to lose.
