    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Snap-on full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -My entire department is wonderful, everyone is so friendly
    -Its great to work for such a well known and well-liked company
    -People really like working here, many have worked at Snap-on for 20 or more years, people have pride in their work
    -Snap-on values its associates, and tries to provide "perks" which are really great.

    Cons

    -Very old, white, male dominated (average age at the company is probably 55)
    -Traditional views, very hierarchical. The smallest decisions need approval from 5 different people.
    - Good old boys club
    -Not ideal for younger, more innovative or creative people, unless the company starts to adapt.

    I have been working at Snap-on full-time

    Pros

    Quality Product, Brand Recognition, Macro Managed, Manufacturer of your own product that you are selling, 95 plus years of great company success.

    Cons

    Lots of hours needed to make a competitive salary, no company car or even much of an expense allowance, Fortune 500 mentality and treatment of employees, little support in the field or with training (in certain jobs)

    Advice to Management

    Get back to your roots and be an all around world class company. That starts with treating your employees like assets instead of 70 hour a week expendables. That might also mean spending some money.

    I worked at Snap-on full-time

    Pros

    Great place to get experience. A lot of responsibilities and meetings but if you put in the effort you will be rewarded. Make a lot of good connections in the automotive industry.

    Cons

    Baby sitting franchisees after they make a sale. As much as you teach them they won't always retain what you've taught them so be prepared to do it over and over and over again. Not much opportunities to grow on the diagnostic side.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to take care of your sales force.
