Manager (Former Employee)
Lynchburg, VA

I worked at N.B. Handy

ProsI experienced many opportunities for learning and professional development.
The company is technology driven. It is also very family-friendly
with open-doors in management. Mentoring is present both formally and informally and most managers are very approachable and willing to answer questions as well as coach.

ConsThe wholesale building products industry has small profit margins and the company
lacks diversification. The Company is also highly leveraged.
The Company's growth opportunity is very limited in current economic climate.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate with all employees early and often. Also,
mentor managers with stronger contemporaries not necessarily
their direct managers. Seek more input from employees on ideas for cost savings and the effectiveness of prior measures taken.
