    Lean culture is just about dumping more work on fewer people

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

    Pros

    OK salary, good benefits, some very nice, very talented people many who go completely unrecognized.

    Cons

    Company has gotten so "lean" employees are required to do the job of 2 or 3 people. No promotions - they hire from outside. Build your resume and move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees. Recognize the jobs they do. Promote from within. Communicate.

    I have been working at Masco full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 an year)

    Pros

    The company culture is laid back. They believe in work life balance. Masco offers plenty of vacation time for the holidays so that you won't have to use your own vacation time to spend with family and friends.

    Cons

    Depending on what division you work there are limited opportunities for advancement.

    I have been working at Masco

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    I have been working at Masco

    Pros

    Learning and Development opportunities have been way beyond expectation, even in an economic downturn, the focus on continuous improvement will have placed MASCO in an extraordinary position when housing starts begin to climb in both the US and Europe

    Cons

    can't think of any, this company has been the best I have worked for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing

    I have been working at Masco as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Subsidized food and drinks, so awesome cheap food. Benefits, pay and work life balance even as an intern are great. Managers actually care about staff development. Opportunities to grow and learn new things on the job. Can rotate departments for additional internship experience.

    Cons

    Work is often repetitive and down time from work has to be filled with busy work that doesn't develop many skill sets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, I love the atmosphere and the people.

    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.
