    Decent company to work for

    Current Employee - CAD Drafter I in El Paso, IL

    I have been working at American Buildings full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It has good benefits, they treat their employees decent. We still have holiday parties, cookouts, etc..Not too many companies left like that. They are all about their employees. They promote moving within.

    Cons

    Although vacation time is decent, there is only 1 personal day a year. Company has great vision, but sometimes the vision strays. As with everything else... life is busy,and sometimes things just need a reminder

    Pros

    Owned by Nucor which is a very solid company.

    Cons

    Only one profitable division of four. Western Division is poorly run with great internal issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a better team environment, let go people who are hurting the division and figure out a way to decrease the process. Think outside the box.

    I worked at American Buildings

    Pros

    They have a very strong parent company in Nucor. Good media info & estimating programs. Mostly knowledgeable staff & internal support.

    Cons

    As an outside builder, didn't receive the best communication at all times from the main offices. Seemed to be a lot of turnover in sales groups.

    I have been working at American Buildings

    Pros

    The company is owned by Nucor.
    They claim to follow a " No lay-off" practice, .... though, don't know how long it would stay true.
    Also Medical Insurance plan is decent.

    Cons

    Dishonest management, exploitation of employees, virtually no respect, appreciation, recognition or growth with low salaries and high level of stress.
    It is as if the management is encouraging the employees to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should learn to actually "take care of internal customers" and ensure that is run like a Nucor Company.
