    GREAT people to work with. Truly values employees

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

    Good company in the good times

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

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

    ConsThey 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 Senior ManagementShare some of the potential for stock growth with people in the lower ranks.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Greedy Management and Board of Directors

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementMight 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.
