    I worked at James Hardie full-time (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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop restructuring the entire company every 6 months.

    I have been working at James Hardie full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Growing organization with lot's of career opportunities. Excellent benefits. Personal growth and compensation are based on results and potential not tenure. Recently doing a lot more with personal development and appreciation. Very dynamic company with year over year positive margins.

    Cons

    If you are not a self-driven individual, i.e. you wait to be told what to do, this is not the place for you. Expectations are very high and this can be overwhelming to some.
