    Pros

    Masonite commands not only a respectable market share but also has one of the most respected and well know names in the building industry.

    Cons

    Management is poor. Benefits cost far too much. Current ownership is concerned primarily with pulling cash out of their investment rather than growing the company. Employee morale (especially customer facing employees) is very, very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve marketing support now. You cannot publish your annual catalog in the 2nd quarter when the competition send pallets of their literature to the field in January.
    Communicate efficiently and completely. No more spin to employees. Tell the truth. Rising health care costs at "twice the rate of inflation" do not cause a 107% increase in premiums.

    Pros

    Company is restructuring and becoming more professional and efficient. Senior management communicates well with the overall employee community. There is a definite plan and vision moving forward that is communicated. Senior Management is not afraid to answer any questions during town hall meetings. The company is becoming more streamlined and shedding the bulky inefficiencies from acquisitions.

    Cons

    In IT, there are nearly as many managers as there are staff. They don't perform due diligence when buying products which leads to poorly implemented solutions, or solutions that don't meet the requirements that were never captured.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You hired professionals to work for you, listen to them. Gather requirements before buying products and you won't have to cover up that all that money was wasted on an unused product. Senior management should pay closer attention to large budget projects within IT to ensure the business will actually use them, and they should perform a full review of the competency and qualifications of IT Management.
