    Up and Downs

    Sales (Former Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    ProsSalary, Advancement, Benefits and Great Co Workers

    ConsThey place everyone into a "position" and that is how they are compensated, however there were a few of us doing several "positions" but were never valued

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to get out of the Good Ol Boys club and realize the value of all your employees

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

    OK overall, stale and political leadership, lots of lifers

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Federal Way, WA

    ProsVery focused on safety of employees. Individual teams tend to work very well together and be loyal. Very little advancement during the downturn, but a good incentive program if you are high enough up in the company.

    ConsVery political leadership team. Lots of egos and power plays. They talk a lot about growth and advancement but more words than actions. Lots of meetings that are a waste of time because the decisions are actually made with the cronies in the hallway.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCorp headquarters is like a library, zero pulse. Bring some energy into the company by getting younger and diverse workforce.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Middle Management is clueless but Branch Manager/Regional Manager are too!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsUsed to be a great company to work for with good benefits. Leadership was 100% invested in the employee and the company so it was a win/win for all.

    ConsOver the past 5 years, some benefits (ie health care) have deteriorated. Some branches have not received raises in over 3 years. Lots of middle managers who are "yes" men to senior mgmt but to their employees they are rude, play favorites, don't totally understand their employee's work day and what is involved on a day to day work load. Favortism is out of control and people are not held accountable if they are "in good" with middle management. Everyone is not treated the same.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClean house...open your eyes and look at what your middle management is telling you and then take that info to your lower level employees who are actually on the front lines and see if they jive. Guarantee that most of the time, your lower level employees (who are the GLUE) are seeing/hearing things totally different than your middle managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Change is a constant

    Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsMany long term associates with a wealth of knowledge and market experience.

    ConsMany long term associates unwilling to embrace new tools and methods. Management lack of understanding of operational details.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAssociates that always tell you what you want to hear are not the best candidates to lead the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    They don't grow trees in Texas

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company used to be a great place to work. Very professional teams that wanted to do what's best for the company.

    ConsThe new CEO has been making changes and decisions on how to model the business. The company centralized all support in 1999, and now they're going to a more distributed model which will cost more in the end.

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

    Solid company that allows for personal growth.

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
    Federal Way, WA

    ProsIndustry leader with a good reputation.

    ConsSlower pace than other companies, but is more due to the industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to your employees, many of whom have many years in the business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A mixed bag in Oregon

    Millwright (Current Employee)

    ProsA genuine and sincere focus on safety, which I laud, but..........Compensation is slightly above average, and health insurance is ok. Workload is reasonably to easy.

    ConsVery slow to react, with the exception to safety. If safety were a salable commodity we'd have the corner, block, and city on the market, but its not. Don't misunderstand, I have worked elsewhere, to others safety is a word given lip service, here it is the real thing. Some things, however, need to be dealt with common sense.

    A lot of talent and experience is wasted because of ineptitude, ego, and territorialism by middle management. Meetings, and the voluminous amount of Emails don't help me do my job; a Manager and Planning Dept. that are there to support me would. Work Orders that tell me my housekeeping responsibilities, or the need to review upcoming jobs for parts etc waste your time and don't benefit me.

    In general, a lot of missed opportunity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou really need to buy into that people are your greatest asset!

    Finishing Area

    Tallied Lumber (Current Employee)
    Titusville, PA

    ProsThe benefits were decent, the pay was good for this small town especially without furthering your education. It was also a pretty steady company

    ConsIt was alright at first but then things just kept going down hill. Feels like you are in school all over again.

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