    I have been working at Stanley Black & Decker full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Large company with good benefits and many opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Large company also means many moving parts, which means it's sometimes difficult to get things in motion.

    I have been working at Stanley Black & Decker full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    One of the best power tools brand. Apart from the brand, until recently had some good power tools veterans working for the company. All have left and now ppl from paints and sticker companies rule the roost with few of them not even knowing the difference b/w power tools and hand tools but still formulates strategy and business plans. Hilarious bunch of jokers!

    Cons

    Bad management and spineless HR - unethical and unprofessional. Highly egocentric, narcissistic people on the top. They recruit from top companies and then later ruin their career by laying them off at the drop of a hat. Hence morale is down so is the trust among even colleagues. Highly toxic environment fueled by two obnoxious ppl on top.

    Advice to Management

    Culture (only written and not practiced) and atmosphere is so bad. Will have to make some structural changes in India.

    People are hard-working, collaborative and all-around fantastic. Lots of opportunity to take on different roles and experiences. Good promote-from-within culture.

    Not known for the most competitive salary (compared to other Consumer Product companies). Other benefits are on par with what you'd find elsewhere, but not impressive.
