    I have been working at Stanley Black & Decker full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent company with a rich history of 175 years. Stanley Black & Decker is well positioned for growth as they embark on Industry 4.0. The leaders at Stanley are knowledgeable, adaptable, accessible and transparent. The diverse and inclusive culture here is admirable. There's a new communication platform which empowers employees to be engaged in all company updates at Stanley. The culture here is deeply routed team building events and networking opportunities. I highly recommend working here!!

    Cons

    Many locations in central CT, should expand into new states to attract more talent which will also increase brand recognition.
