    I worked at Masco full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Exceptional co-workers are very talented. Reasonable hours and good working conditions. Average salary but bonuses and other perks make up for it. Very diverse and interesting work during the up periods. International company with many opportunities to make a difference.

    Cons

    Current executive management is beholden to Wall Street and makes decisions based on the current quarter instead of the next five years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the company not in the shareholders and focus on product quality!

    Pros

    Comprehensive benefits, pay, and other 401k perks.

    Cons

    Employees can become a number if you are not in a high level position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the issues that your lower level staff point out, take their word when things are working correctly and validate their contributions. Many times through process improvement, the high level managers disregard the information provided from their staff, then they will hire a consultant to say the same thing. Very frustrating. Also, the performance reviews are a joke!!! Never once did I receive a review that actually mattered or matched my current contributions!!!!

    I have been working at Masco full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexability of the job. Not having a boss hanging over your shoulder. Work at different locations each day of the week.
    Different Projects every month.
    Meet new people all of the time. Busy Work.
    Provides company car
    Wonderful benefits.
    Pay is OK, Better then most third party agenies
    Bonus Potential
    Wellness Program

    Cons

    Upper management is disconnected from the field. There seems to be a disconnect from the office staff and the field. Communcation with management is lacking. Stories are not the same across the country. There is not a team feeling, but we are told that we are to work as a team.
    Work comes home with you every day. Time each day spent on computer at your own time. You have to be really organized to ballance work with home life.
    There is alot of off the clock work. Field feels micro managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't micro manage the field. Allow more admin time to get things done. Work to allow advancemnets for the field for those that want to move up. Regional Managers are over worked, add another layer of managment to help the field feel more like a team.

    Masco Corp. focuses on health and well-being as an employee.

    I have been working at Masco

    Pros

    Great people to be around, most of the staff are easing going and laid back particularly outside of the office. Broad range of staff as well, which gives many different viewpoints. Many get a laptop for work. Staff is not competitive with each other, and are striving to work well and develop the business.

    Salary is okay, not wholly satisfied. Bonuses and raises are based primarily on performance, but during the downturn who knows. Great cafeteria, the food and staff are really nice. Masco also offers a full gym with several treadmills, bikes ellipticals, free weights, and machines. There is an on-site certified trainer from 8:30-5. Also, offers work out classes.

    Cons

    Many cuts have been made and job security is a little frightful. There is little feedback or communication on individual performance. It would be nice if there were career mentors available. Tasks seem to be limited to the scope of management, there is little room for individual innovation or thinking. Its definitely a top down approach with a new flavor of the month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering the economy and being centered in housing, I don't think there is much more they could be doing.
