    I worked at James Hardie full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, great health benefits, casual dress, and opportunity to work with some of the most intelligent and hard working people you will ever meet.

    Cons

    Salaries of hourly employees versus management are extremely different - the guys that work hard do not see the compensation that managers who do nothing but go to meetings and "discuss" the work the other guys are doing go home with a minimum of 85K + a 20-25% yearly bonus that only management receives. If the bonuses were distributed throughout the plants then each employee would get 2-5K a year extra.
    Human Resources are a joke. They are severely unprofessionally and 100% driven by their personal relationships-friendships. There are not repercussions for anyone who is in management or friends with HR regardless of what they do.
    Work Life balance does not exist. If you want to stay at Hardie you have to give up your friends and family. You are expected to work 50-70 hours a week. The responsibilities given to each employee are impossible to accomplish in 40 hours and they know it.
    Turnover is high. That is an understatement.
    They do not value any employee. You are just like the machines that make the board - if they don't like something about you they will change it. If they can't they will dispose of you. no job is secure.
    This company will lie to you, mislead you, set you up for failure, stab you in the back, throw you under the bus, then fire you or force you to quit.
    If you are looking for insecurity, drama, double standards, hypocrisy, constant lies, and a guarantee for failure - this is the place you want to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone with respect - not just the managers. Learn to value your employees - don't work them to death. Listen to employees when they voice concerns and ACTUALLY do something. Stop letting your friendships interfere with the company. Leave your personal relationships and home and learn how to be professional. You have some of the hardest working employees and some of the most intelligent people in their respective fields but you will continue to lose them by burning them out and having unnecessary drama.
