    Pros

    Positive, supportive atmosphere, non repressive, non micromanagement style, better than average benefits, good pay, and plenty of overtime during summer.

    Cons

    Co-worker's bossy attitude. Paper trail in the name of safety. Safety is an overkill company wide/nation wide. Sometimes communication.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, positive attitude, positive energy, & class A work ethic.

    I worked at Beacon Roofing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not too many pros here; pay is decent; benefits are pretty good; office events that no one really seems to care about occur. Overall, working here serves as a great opportunity to advance your career elsewhere.

    Cons

    You can work all the color out of your hair and still receive no recognition or positive reinforcement management. There a handful of employees struggling with power and like most offices there a lot of gossip, and HR loves to indulge. Daily stress makes everyone on edge and creates a consistent feeling of walking on eggshells. A back-stabbers paradise. Watch your back often.

    Advice to Management

    There is a very strange culture in this company and the only sense of unity is by employees throwing one another off the ladder on their climb up to the top. Let people know how much premature aging they are up against once they sign that offer letter. Don't ridicule and belittle employees in front of each other, and since the favoritism can't be avoided, stop being messy and at least try to mask it a little.

    Pros

    Great work life balance, weekends off. Off just about every holiday and 2 days off for christmas and thanksgiving. Great benefits.

    Cons

    No overtime. If you do get it they send you home early some point in the week to keep you at 40.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be stingy with overtime if we earn it we should keep it! The company is worth too much money to be doing that...

    Pros

    Great pay in the industry. Great sales tools. Some Branch Managers are great and teach you everything they know and are not afraid to let you make decisions on your own and then learn from the mistakes of you happen to make one.

    Cons

    If you enjoy summer then this is not the job for you. You have no life as this is "roofing season" expect 60+ hours per week. Conversely the winter will drive you crazy as you make phone calls to contractors who aren't even working and don't want to talk to you or hear your sales pitch. Some Branch Managers don't have a clue. If you aren't in management you won't get 40 hours in the winter.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the hidden agendas. With all of the buyouts of the smaller companies there are corporate policies that are even across the board, make it so all sub companies follow the same policies and procedures. Take a look at your morals and live by them. Get rid of the politics that are killing this company that has so much potential. Get rid of the "Old School" Branch Managers as they kill morale and run off good employees.
