    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Stanley Black & Decker full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to represent some of the most recognizable brands within the industry. Many of the employees are still outstanding individuals, however, the culture is experiencing a dramatic shift since the merger with Stanley.

    Cons

    Specifically the GTS division is being lead by a dictatorship...it is very much a “do what your told” culture and if you don’t follow orders, you’ll soon be sent packing. Fear and intimidation seem to be the new method for motivation. Most recently, the sales team was given orders to not take any vacation during the month of June and were required to work 8 hours over the weekend in addition to the normal Mon-Fri schedule....

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people...a healthy organization embraces feedback from its employees. Need to show respect. It doesn’t hurt to show kindness either. Need to accept diversity and empower your people to do the jobs they were hired to do. Less micro management would be good as well.
