    Large company with good benefits and many opportunities for growth.

    I have been working at Stanley Black & Decker full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for advancement within the organization. Those who work hard are eventually rewarded. World-class organization with a strong culture of acceptance, integrity and promoting from within.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be a struggle. Acquisitive growth has led to resource constraints that can mean long hours in order to keep projects on schedule. Work hours are flexible to help accommodate this, but there will be projects that entail regularly working outside of normal business hours.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent with employees about factors impacting hiring and advancement opportunities.
