    Pros

    Good overall company to work for. Engaged middle management. Growth opportunities and decent benefits. 401k and Medical are some of the best.

    Cons

    Some disconnect from EVP level and about. Extremely poor pay scale! Pay has not kept pace with growth and market! I left after 16 years and many promotions. I now make $85,000 a year more with similar title in weld industry.

    Advice to Management

    Review pay scale. Talent is hard to find and even harder to keep without the proper compensation.

    Pros

    Flexibility, great group of people to work with...

    Cons

    None really in my area... I work on accounting side as well as the inventory side daily and the people I work with are great... We all have the same goals and objectives... Doing right by the customers, and keeping the inventory in line with where it needs to be...

    Advice to Management

    best advice I could really give is this: sometimes management doesn't have the full perspective on what it takes to get things done or to make them happen... you really need a little bit of "hands on"... What I mean by that is this: go out and spend time with the people to see what it takes through out the different area's... When someone explains what it takes, realize and understand the words are a lot quicker then the actual functions... if we all stepped into each others shoes for just a bit, you will be enlightened a bit more...

    Pros

    41K, medical, vision, scholarship but you must stay for 3 years to pay it back.

    Cons

    Lack of carrer path program. Most people stay in one same position for life.

    Advice to Management

    Get a management or MBA diploma and get prepared to perform management and supervisory functions – such as employee recruiting, labor relations, employee performance monitoring and evaluation, and employing motivation and problem solving techniques.

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice people to work with. Company has been around a long time and will invest in new technology to try and stay ahead of the competition.

    Cons

    They hire too many upper management people and lay off middle managment creating high levels of stress for those workers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire so many Senior Managers. They just create more work for the few mid-level managers that are left after layoffs or replacing mid-level managers with clerical staff.

    Pros

    Sales possitions throughout this company are the best jobs in the company. Great pay and commisions with lots of freedom and responsibility.

    Cons

    Company is currently struggling. Stock is badly diluted with the majority of the company now being owned by a private equity firm. Many job cuts have been made and plants have been closed down.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to strategic change in order to overcome economic down turns in the commercial building market.
