    Pros

    Nice office environment, ok culture. Great people. Tons of work to keep everyone busy.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity. Lack of career development. No training to speak of. Building industry is cyclical, so extreme good times/bad times pretty much all the time. Manufacturing environment, so stressful at times even far away from mills and warehouses. Culture rapidly changing since HQ moved to Nashville. New IT systems poses the usual challenges (eg. outsourcing).

    Advice to Management

    Say what you mean, and mean what you say.

    Pros

    Great people. Innovated products. Heading in the right direction.

    Cons

    Went through a down turn and lost some good people. Went through a conversion and lost more - put a lot of people through a tough time.

    Advice to Management

    Risk and its consequences versus employer of choice.

    Pros

    LP was a good place to work and learn new skills. It is a large corporation with small corporate feel. The people are amazing there and loved working with everyone.

    Cons

    Instability is the largest issue with LP, as is the case with a lot of places. I hope they keep finding success.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to keep your employees apprised of the companies situation. That was my biggest issue. I was continually told we were doing fine and then one day a bunch of us were let go.
