Pros

Masco is fairly good on work life balance. They understand that people generally have a life away from work and are accommodative on time off and professional development.

Cons

Communication is poor and the "top-down" organizational structure makes it difficult to understand what the strategic vision of the company is. Thus, on a day-to-day basis, its hard to see how your work is relevant, and you don't really feel like you're making a difference or your position is important.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the time to get to know what lower-level employees are working on and have some dialogue with them on what they can do to help the company.

    Great place to work but be prepared for a disconnect between employees and management

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn the overall operation of the industry. Excellent work times 8-5. Human resources does a great job of explaining benifits and is willing to help employees achive their goals. If you have the drive and ambition to succeed run can learn a lot about the business because other employees are willing to help and give you information about the company

    Cons

    Communication among employees and management. Employees are not sure of the goals and management doesn't give an explanation of the current goals. No system of measurment for the daily activities within the organization. Management allows products to be back ordered for up to a year and by the time the product is received customer has moved on. Company culture is not strong because of the management/employee disconnect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the office and on to the floor of the business. Management does not understand the employees and doesn't look for opportunities in the organization and for its customers.

    Pros

    Great people to be around, most of the staff are easing going and laid back particularly outside of the office. Broad range of staff as well, which gives many different viewpoints. Many get a laptop for work. Staff is not competitive with each other, and are striving to work well and develop the business.

    Salary is okay, not wholly satisfied. Bonuses and raises are based primarily on performance, but during the downturn who knows. Great cafeteria, the food and staff are really nice. Masco also offers a full gym with several treadmills, bikes ellipticals, free weights, and machines. There is an on-site certified trainer from 8:30-5. Also, offers work out classes.

    Cons

    Many cuts have been made and job security is a little frightful. There is little feedback or communication on individual performance. It would be nice if there were career mentors available. Tasks seem to be limited to the scope of management, there is little room for individual innovation or thinking. Its definitely a top down approach with a new flavor of the month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering the economy and being centered in housing, I don't think there is much more they could be doing.
