    Pros

    Decent benefits, plenty of challenges, fairly flexible scheulde, time off is better than average (provided you negotiate your vacation and don't accept the typical vacation accrual).

    Cons

    The manager who hired me was fantastic and then he retired. Management brought someone in who knew absolutely nothing. Now, we are micromanaged and controlled through fear, intimidation and threats. Knowledge and experience mean nothing to Ferguson. It is a clique and if you don't know the right people, you won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Handle your promotions fairly and ethically. Instead of giving lip service for associates to treat the customer right even when the associates themselves aren't being treated right is counterproductive. You do not get loyal employees (or customers) by beating them until their morale improves. Deal with your employees in an ethical and honest manner and you will be rewarded with great employees who treat the customers right.

    Ferguson Enterprises is a very large company providing lots of opportunity but makes it hard to balance work and family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One piece of advice that I would have to management is to do everything you can to retain your young talent and to communicate. During my time there, many young people got fed up with the lack of communication and career development and Ferguson ended up losing some great people they had invested heavily in.
