    I worked at CertainTeed

    Pros

    CertainTeed has a great brand, incredible products, wonderful people, and in some cases a decent work-life balance for its employees.

    Cons

    If you are not a white male it is very hard to advance. There is a Women's group that helps with mentoring and navigating the male-dominated culture, but it is never enough. With very few exceptions, the talented women leave because they cannot move up in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try a less biased approach when developing talent.
