    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at NCI Building Systems

    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 ManagementAdvice

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