    I worked at Sherwin-Williams full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Unfortunately in Australia there are very few pro's. A couple of times a year there are good employee discounts

    Cons

    Needs to be a change in senior management - until this happens unfortunately the business can not progress. Out of touch with our customers and continually make decisions that lose business. Very limited opportunities for advancement.
