    I worked at Universal Forest Products full-time

    Pros

    Great people and good opportunities to move around the country to advance your career. The culture is very strong in working hard and doing what it takes to get the job done.

    Cons

    Little to no formal training and career development, your future is entirely in your own hands. The bonus structure was often vague or difficult to fully own based off of you specific performance. If the company is doing well you will do well, if the company is struggling, you are struggling.
