    OK entry level......but that's it!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEasy job. Product training and merchandising in Lowe's stores. Little to no supervision!

    ConsAdvancement is almost impossible. Many days of just hanging out with no work to do.

    Field Rep

    Field Representative (Current Employee)
    Mooresville, NC

    ProsFlexability 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

    ConsUpper 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 Senior ManagementDon'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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

    Analyst (Current Employee)
    Taylor, MI

    ProsGreat 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.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A company in transition

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWhat you will experience will depend on the business unit you work in. There are many very good people in the ranks. Some business units are leaders in their product categories.

    ConsThe company continues to perform poorly. Corporate Senior Management do not appear to have a plan that will put the company back on a path of profitability and growth. The "Masco Business System" is far less tangible than it is portrayed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake the hard decisions and move forward. B School 101 is "Don't throw good money after bad."

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
