    Former Contractor - Anonymous in Denver, CO

    I worked at ProBuild as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Job is exciting and always changes. Everyone is friendly. My team is very welcoming. Everyone works hard.

    Cons

    Position is currently temporary. There is not always consistency or best practices in place. Corporate and the field don't always see eye to eye on many topics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to get best practices in place and align corporate and the field by having the field share their best practices and what works for them now and in the past.

    I worked at ProBuild full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    CEO is very employee oriented, but understands business is business. Strong company values and this has been validated with company saying "goodbye" to key employees that have crossed the line. Leadership is strong amongst roughly 40% of senior leadership with others somewhat hanging on somehow. Pay and benefits are solid.

    Cons

    At the HQ level, company does not seem to be able to get out of the way of itself. Too many large projects that affect the field and never come to fruition. Great ideas, but lack of execution especially on the IT side which has little to no flexibility and/or business knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement and execute before piling more on. Pretend it's your money that's being invested.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Management is patient and treats people well

    Cons

    Not much training, you have to kind of figure things out on your own. Long uncertain hours. You get off when the job is done there are no set times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some work and safety training programs in place.

    Current Employee - OUTSIDE SALES

    I have been working at ProBuild full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation plan is very attractive, for those with a mind to produce good profits for the company.

    Cons

    Communication, at least on the local level is lacking. Training programs could be established, and a culture of sharing information, and best practices would be helpful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Reduce overlap of sales areas, it's hard enough, without competing with other branches.
