    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    It is an awesome job right out of school. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Unless your manager is willing to go out of their way for you, you probably will have a terrible time figuring things out on your own and moving up in the company. Boring and tasks become routine. You deal with incompetent store associates at Lowe's or Home Depot.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your great employees so they can move up in the company instead of offering them one way to go (market manager) in an area they don't want and then forgetting about them.

    I have been working at Stanley Black & Decker full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. Projects are rewarding most of the time. Management is on top of breaking through road blocks that may slow down a project.

    Cons

    Pay is not the greatest; investment in employee training could be higher; depending on location, growth can be slow; too many projects have deadlines set before project scope is defined which result in very aggressive deadlines leading to corners that need to be cut to meet them.

    Pros

    Strong leadership with great communication. Career advancement opportunities and employee investment.

    Salary compensation is a bit out of range for today's standards.

    Make great product and deliver great communications. Drive passion a little more and inspire your people by transforming change with our products and community service.

    I have been working at Stanley Black & Decker full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large company, great culture, great people, iconic brands, a lot of lateral and upward movement available.

    Cons

    Lack of process, HR policies unclear, employee benefits first to go during cutbacks, hard to increase salary and benefits once you're in.

    Advice to Management

    Small investments in your people will go a long way. Adding more people to the bonus plan won't significantly impact the bottom line but will greatly improve employee satisfaction. There also needs to be a much better onboarding and HR policy.

    Pros

    The people are nice, and it's kept me there over 10yrs.

    Cons

    Moving up within the company is hard

    Advice to Management

    When someone applies for a position from outside or within the company read the complete resume, pick the most qualified, and be a little harder on employees and supervisors to do their jobs.
