Former Employee - Accounting in Newport News, VA

I worked at Ferguson Enterprises full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The company is a product of multiple acquisitions and as a result has very diverse culture. You get to work with wonderful people from different parts of the country. If you have set your mind to achieve something don't let early baffles discourage you, it's all part of learning process. If you are here just for a paycheck - get a job in one of the shared centers. If you are here for a career - start at the branch.

Cons

Ferguson has somewhat new corporate structure in the form of matrix with many functions taken from the branch level and moved to centralized locations. Yes, this saved some money but changed mentality from "we're all in the same boat" to "I got to cover my own a$$".
Working 50hrs/week is definitely a con and a good way to save on labor costs.

    I worked at Ferguson Enterprises full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Didn't get to find out

    Cons

    No training manual available to me until 2 weeks in, "trainer" was a manager that didn't even do the processes on a regular basis and was rarely present to guide learning, second person used as a "trainer" had a different way of doing things (which when I did them his way I was told they were wrong". Asked for more/different training and shadowing someone else in the department- all requests ignored and then they can me with no notice, no feedback prior to. I will hold my MBA in September, what they did was unethical, unprofessional and the site will suffer for their lack of real management/leadership and training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate! Be present! Don't hand new employees off to one another and expect great returns; you have not invested!
