    Pros

    Once upon a time a great company with proud employees wanting advancements within the company.

    Cons

    Low pay, office bureaucrat and pointless meetings. Upper Management misleading directions for company inventory. Employees socializing effects the professional environment the company was known to be "best corporation of the year award." The employees turnover speaks volumes.

    Good benefits Good pay if you're a good installer

    Cons

    The turn over rate is very high, the pay is very low for the amount of work done, and even employees that have been with the company for 10+ years are not getting paid what they should.

    Pros

    Potentially interesting portfolio of brands and products.

    Cons

    A CEO who should have retired 5 years ago, can't decide if it is a disjointed collection of buinesses or an integrated company, of late there is a penchant to 'go back' to the holding company model (which has totally run out of gas...). Indecision, paralysis and mediocre talent at the Sr Leadership level equals a company to stay away from.

    Advice to Management

    The Board of Directors needs to be much more hands on and work with the current CEO to find a new leader outside of the company. Fresh blood must be brought in at the corporate VP level, and quickly. The CEO needs to be much more critical of how strategies are being deployed in the company.

    Pros

    Dress down Fridays, coworkers were the best. They do hire and promote from within, so if you want to move up you can, or switch to a different department. Decent product just sometimes the level and cost of servicing it is not considered when new product is offered.

    Cons

    no raises for years or they were very small. Micro-management became more the norm after Masco took over. If they want you out they will find a way to get you, I've seen it numerous times-Don't make upper management look bad, even by accident. Made bonus' impossible to achieve. Took away almost all employee functions. Very high turnover of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and the customers will come. They still had big parties for the dealers but cut all the employee fun. I would reccommend firing almost all upper management in Temecula and some middle management. That place is horrific. The philosophy does not exist anymore.

    Pros

    The health benefits are much better than previous companies; on-site cafe; matching gifts; the company closes for the week between Christmas Eve and New Year's. There is a gym on-site. 4% match for 401k. Annual bonus and profit sharing.

    Cons

    Minimum to zero advancement potential for support personnel. I have never had a performance review. They are so focused on bringing in good young talent that they make everyone that has been there for years feel undervalued. Support personnel are continuously left out of department meetings, not given any projects, basically made to feel that we are not an important part of the team. Telecommuting policy is not fairly governed. Lots of red tape for every little idea you may have, legal has to look at everything and takes weeks to respond. IT Help Desk is in bad shape, but they are genuinely pleasant people. It seems to be a lack of direction. The HQ building has so much empty space (waste of money) and should be moved to Ann Arbor with Cabinetry. According to our last all-employee meeting, layoffs are coming AGAIN. Staff are tired of seeing their co-workers terminated. Morale is pitiful. It feels as if there is a constant threat, and there are a couple director level employees who seem to get energized by firing people. These are the type of people that become executives in the company. The "atmosphere" has changed so much. It is very heartbreaking as this used to be a wonderful company. I hope that Masco can find its way back, but it doesn't look like it will anytime soon. In general, I cannot recommend Masco to any interested support level candidates. That said, if you are an executive level employee, you will probably be quite pleased, especially as there are extra perks for execs. I think the extra perks would make up for some of the low morale, etc. that you will face. So, please don't let my review hold you back if you are at that level. It is only for the office workers that the situation is truly dire.

    Pros

    Decent benefits package. On site fitness center.

    Cons

    Raises/bonues based on how much your boss likes you as opposed to high performance. Morale is very low at this time due to lack of opportunities. High performers end up moving onto other companies.

    Advice to Management

    When a manager continually has high turnover within their dept., maybe you should check into fnding out why. Also, perform an employee job satisfaction survey and find out why your employees are so unhappy.
