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

    Pros

    Casual environment. Most employees friendly and helpful. Clean. Nice work stations. Coffee in the break room. Location is good. Milwaukie had lots of restaurants.

    Cons

    Micro manager. She does nothing but socialize and criticize all day. She takes credit for her department's hard work. She's a bully to other employees and two faced. How she has lasted as long as she has is a mystery. No one has any respect for her.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to spend some quality time looking at their middle managers.
