    I worked at Beaulieu full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Because it is privately held, the corporate culture is a little more laid back. It also makes the company more nimble in many respects. Some of the smartest people I have ever met in this industry were at Beaulieu. Excellent products.

    Cons

    Because they are nimble, they sometimes change directions too often which is ultimately frustrating. Lots of turnover in middle management during my tenure. High incidence of nepotism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try to be Shaw or Mohawk. What dealers always loved about Beaulieu is that you were easy to do business with and it felt like family.

    I worked at Beaulieu full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good products to sell. Decent work-life balance although your customers expect you to be available after hours and weekends. Compensation was good.

    Cons

    A bit more challenging to get placement as most dealers are supporting Shaw or Mohawk carpet. Not much opportunity for professional growth. Lots of turnover in management during my tenure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how you want to be positioned in the marketplace and stick to it. The direction seems to change too often.

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

    Pros

    Customers are wanting BeauLieu to be successful. Company has a vision of high margin and attempt to have higher quality.

    Cons

    Technology has became dated and company is dated (plants old, tech old, lack of leadership). mid to upper management is lacking control and has no feedback to owners, individual success is dependent on managers "feelings on employee" vs actual ability to get the business. Products no longer have any advantage, over competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust and become more versatile
