    Pros

    Great company, great benefits, lots of opportunities. Love the ability to be able to transfer just about anywhere in the world with the same company.

    Cons

    Very large company, can sometimes be hard to get your voice heard. Not easy to get ideas for change across.

    Advice to Management

    No real advice to management. No real ability to voice concerns to high-level management as it is so many levels from the lower tier jobs.

    Pros

    The people at the facility are awesome! It is because they care that SHS works.

    Cons

    Management hired within last 3 years.
    Production merit increase of either $208/yr or $416/yr after waiting a year for any kind of increase. Why bother? What an insult to the workers.
    Past HR managers - BIG problem, would not do anything for the employees unless it would benefit them. Walked a plant manager with 27 years to the door like a common criminal, and gave no closure to plant or staff workers. "Had to make a tough decision," except it was planned from the start of the new director. Bravo!!

    Advice to Management

    You appear to have little insight about leadership and how to treat people. How about another management barbeque that will settle the unrest. The management loves their secrets, like the one about getting rid of a product line. Plant found out about it from an outside sales person. CEO and VP swoop in for a management barbeque, and tell us more stories. The new electronics production line is sure running smoothly... Oh wait we don't have one. If you had an ounce of principles and values, you would stop keeping secrets and treat people like adults. As for the former CEO, "The marine way" is not gained in a mere 4 years of service, Sir.

    Pros

    Great people that work here. Good environment. Company is very focused on employee moral and values what employees are saying. Company provides a service and product that is very meaningful in the healthcare industry. Very competitive pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Change (not really a con unless you don't like it). If you thrive on change and process improvement this is the place for you.

    Pros

    This place is only good for a Paycheck.

    Cons

    Where to start. This company is out for one thing and one thing only- grow at a tremendous rate or fold. The healthcare portfolio makes up less than 2% of the entire Stanley Black and Decker portfolio- this business has become a toy for leadership and a testing ground for potential leaders in a tool business. The Healthcare business used to be very solid and produce tremendous numbers as well as keep customers satisfied. This had to be #1 priority in a company that was stripped of everything to assist in a failing security business that healthcare was under for a number of years. They have completely ripped apart great businesses in Ottawa CN, Grand Rapids MI, and Lincoln NE, taking out good leadership and direction from each business which spanned across Long Term Care and Acute Care and have tried a one size fits "all" model for everything- this does not work if you know your marketplaces and customers in these spaces. You are treated like a pawn in this business and can expect your tenure to be 12- 24 months if you are in any type of leadership role. All other roles better brace for downsizing when the numbers do not hit inflated growth numbers pounded down from the top year over year- they will cut good people and have no regard for performance in any areas. Talk about a Good Old Boys club- you better be in Boston, MA or you don't matter to anyone. HR is not to be trusted in this business and will treat employees worse than anyone- am I missing something about what this department stand for? As this business continues to struggle with incompetent leadership at the top, look for it to fold back into Stanley Security and wholesale changes again to be made in the next 12-18 months. Feel sorry for all the long term employees that knew their markets and businesses that grew up inside them and made them very attractive to Stanley before Stanley acquired them as they have all but been removed from the business for fear of showing up a "new" Stanley leader that is brought in every 12-18 months. If you want to be treated like a person and with respect, there are many other places to work- go try a GE or Philips as they are well ahead of Stanley in their Healthcare growth and leadership!

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of the sand and start listening to what is left of the legacy leaders of these businesses and stop bringing in "new" people from outside the space to reinvent something that was not broken at all. You cant expect to maintain growth in the market with 10 year old product and no resources to service, support, manufacturer, and design your offering. Stop trying to be GE or Philips, you will never catch what they have built in the Acute Care space, nor should you want to. Compare yourself to a "like" company and dominate the space you play in with the offering and service you provide....wait, its too late for this as you have flown this airplane too long with holes in your gas tank over the ocean- hold on now for your nose-dive- hope you can swim!

    Pros

    Descent Salary, learn things on your own and run with it.

    Cons

    Work-Life balance is tough especially in the legal department. There is too much inconsistency on contracts process and lack of any real direction. If direction is given, then it is taken back once it runs afoul. I found myself scratching my head when I was told one thing and then later told to do something else on the same transaction. Be ready to answer emails for projects and contracts your not even working on. I label these as Phantom emails - they do not make sense and mostly in response to projects already completed and worked on and/or projects you have never even heard of. Received 15 emails in the span on an hour on various things I had no dealings with. Director always ready to throw someone under the bus. She lacks technical expertise and a bullish attitude towards people below her. there is a reason why the past three administrators left including myself.I see it all too clear now. Push workers past their limits, and tell you to take it easy. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. Be careful here as work is constantly pushed off from senior management down, you will be confused and no one there to guide you correctly. Asking a question to resolve things reciprocates a look of incompetence. I do not recommend working for this company until they have a true contracts process in place and or a new Director of Contracts. They will treat you like a child and take things personally. While your working hard and stressing over completing projects they are shopping for shoes online. Happens a lot. Glad I left!

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and don't pretend to care about your workers. Some management is okay and knows what they are doing and some just pretend to know and hide it well.
