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 Management

Try a less biased approach when developing talent.
