    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Stanley Black & Decker full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits, Time Off Continued Learning/up skilling Promote from within

    Cons

    Promoting from within means you have to do your job and the job you will be promoted to, working evenings and weekends is what is rewarded. Management is often not skilled in their area, they are people managers not able to help with doing the work or knowledgeable about the area of work. Marketing department is chaos, constantly changing/re-organization, can't make decisions, often decisions are political. Corporate politics are very strong in Marketing - more about who you know and help than what you know. Salaries aren't great.

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

    Pros

    I joined Stanley Black & Decker about six months ago after being with my former employer for 13+ years. I am not good with change and was hesitant about making a move - yet alone a move outside of my industry and comfort zone. Since I've been here, I can honestly say I've met some of the most warm, friendly, smart and kind people in my 20+ year career. They welcomed me and have made the transition an easy one. For the first time in a long time, I also have full accountability, autonomy and trust with the work I'm leading and feel empowered to make quick decisions and pivot when necessary. I also am very grateful to be working in a CPG company that's GLOBAL.

    Cons

    As with any new company, learning the internal structure and building a network feels daunting at first. But having supportive co-workers to guide me along the way has been helpful.

    Pros

    DEWALT is one of the best brands the company owns but then it deceives you with this coveted brand

    Cons

    Most miserable company which works only for Share holders. Half the people in the senior most levels don't know the difference between a distributor and a customer. The worst organisation which nurtures mediocrity and encourages racism especially against Indians if you were working for them in Middle East. I have been subjected to racist taunts although laced with humour but it was certainly not in good taste. I would never recommend any good professional to join this organisation anywhere in the world. Never seen such a work place which sends 4000 people home just to meet their share holder expectations in terms of delivering profits. I wish and pray that this company should nose dive at the Wall Street and then the people at the helm of affairs would realise its the customers, employees who make the organisation what it is. share holders are just incidental beneficiaries.
