    Pros

    Good quality building products, but you pay a premium for them.

    Cons

    For the record, this company has gone through three Area Sales Managers in the last four years in my area of the mid-west. I was let go (with no reason given) back during the housing downturn even though my sales were increasing compared to the rest of the region. The real funny thing is, I still run into roofing distributors and contractors in this area who comment "you were the best rep we've ever had," or "they made a big time mistake when they let you go." This is a very weak company with spineless leadership at all levels that do not value their people. I'm sure the good 'ol boy system is still dead and well at this place. This company will never be able to get away from the charade of their own arrogance. If your looking to join up with a progressive company that is going places..my advice is to keep looking.. They do exist out there...but not at this place. Happy to say I'm striving in a sales position with a top notch Fortune 100 Company today that values their employees, and places emphasis on a positive productive culture.

    Pros

    Work life balance - not really a company value but it's just not a hard working company culture which is good for your home life.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional culture from HQ. Lack of anyone who truly cares about the company, most just marking time. No vision. Full of Corporate Cliche programs that do nothing. Very risk averse. Poor locations. Zero innovation company - created fiberglass but all the competitors now are the ones driving innovation.

    Advice to Management

    I know they won't do it but I'll say it anyway - move the HQ away from Toledo. The only people attracted to this town are the same type of people with the same ideas. HQ is filled with a mix between old 20+ year employees trying to keep their head down and act like they're working and new employees who are only planning on being there 3-5 years then going to a better one. Talent management, development, and caring for leaders in this company for lack of a better word - sucks.
