Pros

Flexible schedule
Upper management is very accessible and approachable.
Birkshire Hathaway Co (financial backing)

Cons

Poor Regional Management
Low compensation compared to direct competitors
Not an innovative company. "Stuck" in their dated ways of thinking.
Majority of employees are "senior". Do not hire many or enough young people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Very limited opportunity for growth without moving to GA. And very few employees under 35 in the company. More young employees need to be hired and promoted so fresh new ideas can be brought to the company. The "old boys club" days are long over. Many more women need to be promoted. There are an extremely low number of women in upper management positions. The company is anything but diverse.

    Great place to work so long as you can't think for yourself.

    Pros

    Competitive pay compared to other companies in the industry. Training opportunities are excellent though you may not even use them. Some of the locations are accessible.

    Cons

    Horrible benefits. No sense of employee worth. Poor management seems to be a company wide problem. Be prepared to go to work with one hand tied behind your back. Cronyism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shaw Industries has great employees. Start by taking better care of your hourly help, they are the ones whos back your riding on. Upper management has an uncanny way of hiding things from corporate. Very top heavy.

    Doesn't Recommend
