    Pros

    Benefits are great. Solid upper management team. Stable company to work for.

    Cons

    Advancement on job merit alone is rare, however those who go above and beyond are consistently rewarded. Middle management can be overbearing and micro-managing too much, as with most large companies.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The are plenty of opportunities of advancement and, depending on the department/location, there are great managers and mentors that want to see you succeed.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is terrible, compensation for current employees is incredibly low compared to new external hires at equal positions.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the desire to grow the company through acquisitions, but don't forget about your existing employees. Listen to your employees. Asking for feedback is pointless if you don't listen. Between the Valspar acquisition and John Morikis replacing Chris Connor as CEO, this does not feel like the same company I started my career with.

    I have been working at Sherwin-Williams part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Im fairly new as an associate here but I was blessed to have two awesome managers. The job teaches you alot about the paint industry and I get to meet real down to earth contractors and learn how to tint paint. Plus the pay is well just starting and being part time.

    Cons

    I wish that there was a better way to become a full time employee, you have to "prove" yourself or that is what I was told. The heavy lifting is a negative to me but they do teach you how to properly lift to stay safe.

    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for advancement. You learn how to run a business, not just how to be good at one thing.

    Cons

    Manual labor. Unloading pallets of products. On your feet a lot. Long hours. You have to work weekends. Not really given a choice about which store your placed at.

    Advice to Management

    Communication needs to improve
