Former Employee - Liaison Building Products  in  Lancaster, PA

Pros

If you find the right coworkers it can be a great work environment. The recent purchase of the company by TPG has made it even more political than it is so be very selective who you talk to. People see the jobs being scaled back and will use any info to get ahead and put a knife in your back.

Cons

Management has a lot to be desired. A lot of the good managers got "phased out" during the buyout. Sales force was "restructured" and it was ugly. They look at you as a commodity not as an employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People see what's going on. Don't tell them things are being scaled back to "save money" while giving huge bonuses to top executives. Many recent decisions have destroyed moral.

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits for the work. Great communication between employees and management.

    Cons

    If you have low seniority it will take years to move up without being rolled off of your position. When production is low you have to stay home and draw temperary unemployment. Alot of the people that have high seniority at this plant are some of the most laziest people that I have ever came across in my life and they don't take pride in their work. I think it is sad that they take their jobs for granted which is ridiculous when there are so many people in this country out of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New employees who actually care about their job.

    Good company but requires a lot out of its employees. Definitely not for slackers

    Current Employee - Human Resources Manager  in  Lancaster, PA
    Current Employee - Human Resources Manager in Lancaster, PA

    Pros

    You get good experience. The people are warm and caring.

    Cons

    Long hours. Always on feel like you have to be available all the time. They've outsourced some finance and IT functions and it makes life frustrating when you have to deal with a vendor or have an IT issue.
