    I worked at Duro-Last Roofing full-time

    Pros

    The company is forthright and honest. The leadership in Saginaw, MI was strong and compelling. The products are high quality and the company will not compromise quality or cut corners. Employees as a whole are proud of the company and the products.

    Cons

    The leadership is very old fashioned. For example, they do not embrace technology and certainly couldn't deal with work-at-home situations. Salespeople, in particular, are able to easily demonstrate their productivity. The proof is in the bottom line!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees who appear to be working hard and who are bringing value to your company. Speaking about administrative jobs vs. factory jobs: You have a culture of clock watchers who arrive noisily in the morning and exit quietly at the end of the day. Reflect on the reasons for this behavior. You tend to micro-manage things that are irrelevant to the bottom line. Treat a person like they are a professional and he/she will deliver. Treat them like a child and they will deliver childish behavior.
