Worked for them for over 7 years.

Account Representative (Former Employee)
Anaheim, CA

I worked at James Hardie Building Products full-time for more than 5 years

Pros- If you can play the politics game, you'll do great.
- Pretty standard for the industry pay, but above average benefits.
- Produce results and you will climb the ladder - for the most part.

Cons- Politics.
- Get a new boss every 6 months. Most of the time from some other division or another company that acts like they know everything about the job you have been doing for years.
- Work/life balance was getting better but if you want to move up fast, prepare to give up your free time.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop restructuring the entire company every 6 months.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
