Pros

Good employees to work with. People seem to really care about their work and are dedicated to the company and management.

Cons

Communication lacks some... needs improvement. Employees do not share in the strategic direction of the company and are left out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None. This is a family owned business and is run as the family board sees fit although there are many opportunities.

    I worked at Duro-Last Roofing

    Pros

    Duro-Last Roofing is one of the only strong companies left in Saginaw, Michigan. They provide outstanding products, and employ some talented people. It seems that all ranks of employees there are passionate about having a great product and serving their customers. Duro-Last makes an effort to reach out to customers and serve their needs with a human touch (which isn't all that common any more). Duro-Last offers multiple small perks for the employees (year-end bonus sharing program, good benefit plan and 401k, travel, professional development and training opportunities, nice facility with a large break room - complete with free popcorn *yum*).

    Cons

    The salaries at Duro-Last Roofing are rather low. However, as described above, Duro-Last Roofing does have some perks that make-up for much of the low pay ranges. For many people there is very little room to advance in a career, even while the company does 'fill from within' more than most companies. The production workers are the ones who are promoted the most frequently, and so the professional workers often leave the company to seek career advancement. Some of the managers need help or training in dealing with problems between employees on their teams. Team issues seem to linger longer than they should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step down and notch or two and level-up with the employees.

    I worked at Duro-Last Roofing full-time

    Pros

    The company is forthright and honest. The leadership in Saginaw, MI was strong and compelling. The products are high quality and the company will not compromise quality or cut corners. Employees as a whole are proud of the company and the products.

    Cons

    The leadership is very old fashioned. For example, they do not embrace technology and certainly couldn't deal with work-at-home situations. Salespeople, in particular, are able to easily demonstrate their productivity. The proof is in the bottom line!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees who appear to be working hard and who are bringing value to your company. Speaking about administrative jobs vs. factory jobs: You have a culture of clock watchers who arrive noisily in the morning and exit quietly at the end of the day. Reflect on the reasons for this behavior. You tend to micro-manage things that are irrelevant to the bottom line. Treat a person like they are a professional and he/she will deliver. Treat them like a child and they will deliver childish behavior.
