    I worked at Stanley Black & Decker full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Being a global US business provide opportunity to learn advanced systems.

    Cons

    Most of the people get paid low wages unless you are a 'yes man' or management favourite. HR (one man show) is totally corrupt and full of lies who just carry out orders from management. Only same people get promoted every year No work life balance Too much politics Management just want to hit numbers at any cost to get their bonus. Good people keep leaving and what remain is 'management pets' or their slaves. If they don't like you they will do everything to fire you. Many people have sued the company over their redundancies and have won as well.
