    I have been working at Stanley Black & Decker

    Pros

    Multiple billion company with global presence, so for career beginners it's good for learning and growing.

    Cons

    Stanley cares more about the result, but not necessarily how so the culture is a little harsh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should learn more about how to empower and trust the employee and more care about how to achieve the result, instead of just the result itself.
