I worked at James Hardie full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
James Hardie has a good product that provides a true performance advantage over other building products. The company pays well and has good health insurance benefits. You are given a fair amount of responsibility and can really make a lot of difference if you are motivated.Cons
James Hardie has a corporate culture that goes beyond professional candor to scary behavior in the name of accountability. The executive management lacks any sort of tact or decorum and are regularly verbally abusive to the employees. In the early days there were employees threatened with 2 x 4s in their performance reviews and taken outside to settle matters. National sales meetings were essentially bachelor parties. Today things are more tame but it is still very much a good ol' boys club with an alpha male complex. Employees are pitted against one another to compete and the winner is the survivor.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Most of the management team today has only ever worked for James Hardie. I think it would do them good to work for another company and learn how to lead people with professional decorum.
