    I have been working at Stanley Black & Decker full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Finally showing some growth because the industry is growing, economy is growing and some company policy corrections forced upon by the management in USA was implemented locally. Otherwise nothing great. Nothing earth shattering. Yr2019 slowing down again.

    Cons

    When numbers happen everything is allowed in this company. Attrition high and nbody feels safe. CEO throws ppl out at drop off a hat- no innovative thinking when it comes to throwing ppl out. They pay like hell but then it doesn't last. Highly unstable company run by two crazy ppl in India who think they are God.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chucking out ppl. They have families and if you don't want them- don't recruit them in the first place. Stop stupid hiring practices. Get a real MD material in India- not a guy who sees ppl through the eyes of his chamcha.

    Pros

    Cons

    Doesn't believe in true partnership with business associates like suppliers. Loyalty doesn't matter in Stanley.

    Advice to Management

    Stanley Management is very aggressive in business growth and their hunger to become worlds biggest tool company is also good and understandable but it is very important to strike a balance in work like of their employees and at the same to treat suppliers as their growth partners. Unfortunately in the race to become big Stanley is compromising with ethical and loyalty factors in business. Stanley can become good to...

    Advice to Management

    Just reviewing the top line will never make you a leader, need to understand process and system which give better result and employee as satisfaction for ever. Need to deep dive into system to understand growth mechanism and employee satisfaction.
