    I worked at Builders FirstSource full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They really treated most employees well during the good times. Stock options went to managers. Outside salesmen made great money until the housing crash

    Cons

    They are mostly owned by a couple of investment firms that are pretty ruthless when it came to cutting people, taking out people with 25+ years with the company. Middle management is pretty good but senior management doesn't really care about anyone but their stock options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share some of the potential for stock growth with people in the lower ranks.

    I have been working at Builders FirstSource

    Pros

    It's a job in these troubled times and it pays the bills.

    Cons

    Management out of touch. Poor communication. Employees are last consideration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Might be helpful for employee morale if some of the guys at the top would circulate now and then among the rank and file . . . maybe answer a few questions . . . see for yourselves what's going on out in the yards, etc.

    Pros

    Fair pay. Benefits are good. Management has an open door policy.

    Cons

    The building industry has experienced some downturns. A lot of difficult decisions have had to be made since 2008. Cut the company contribution to 401K.
