    The market has changed, Learn to compete or die

    Management (Former Employee)

    ProsFull line of components, testing & related products. Decent pricing, enough producing plants to geographically cover almost the entire US.

    ConsThe metal building components market is extremely competitive. Over the past few years there has been a proliferation of regional rollformers that have the same steel, paint system, testing & warranties as metal sales plus they can deliver in 2 days versus 2 weeks. Metal sales has not found a way to combat these threats, they are relying on established relationships to carry them through lean times and many of those customers have purchased their own rollformers.

    Not all plants produce the panels that are needed in their territory. Those panels are produced at a centralized manufacturing plant hundreds of miles away. Inter-company transfer, shipping cost and long lead times generally make those panels too expensive to be competitive in the aforementioned extremely competitive marketplace.

    Constant churn of senior vp's, general managers and sales people. Several years ago the managing group started hiring managers with no industry experience which has accelerated their decline. Life expectancy of a senior vp appears to be 3-4 years. GM's and sales is less than that. Senior management tends to micromanage which has run off several long time GM's and sales people. The day I am writing this review there are 3 GM positions, 1 VP and 1 director position in the employment classifieds.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet some GM's that have experience in the industry and let them run their plants without the constant micromanagement and threat of termination. Be realistic with goals and performance numbers. Sales numbers from 5 years ago are worthless for establishing current budgets. When your largest customer buys his own rollformer that business is gone. Show all of the supporting personnel in the office and plants that you truly value their service.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
