Pros

Good people in a changing environment. The company has tremendous potential. They want to change the building materials industry and have the mass to do it.

Cons

Constantly changing leadership. Strategy and tactics from the parent company Fidelity don't mesh with the industry and local ProBuild leadership is not able to say "No". They don't understand how to implement change. They play with concepts such as "Green" but don't live or believe it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set a course that makes sense for the industry. Build the passion. Inspire the field to join in.

    Pros

    if you are looking for an entry level position without a chance for a raise in over 3 years. its the place for you

    Cons

    At one time the company was growing and taking care of the people who made it happen. but since the switch over to Denver corporate its been a steady downhill roll. the names and faces chance so often at the top you have to wonder when Marchbank will leave either on his own or from being shown the door. Running a business based upon an ERP implimentation was the craziest thing i have ever seen. I am surprised Fidelity hasn't pulled the plug by now and the way things have been changing. i would expect the sell off within a year or so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    its time to get away from transparent pricing, cut overhead at the corporate level and get back to what made the legacy locations profitable. take care of the people who made it happen.

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits offered here are extremely generous.

    Cons

    To much reactive, unproductive change. ProBuild is quickly evolving into a company that has a revolving door; people leaving as quickly as they come because of mismanagement and lack of care for employees. What was once a company that exhibited care and concern for its workforce is now one that could care less. The best talent is leaving and and new good talent doesn't stick around for long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put manager employees that care about the employees that work in the warehouse and appreaciate their efforts and skills
