I worked at Stock Building Supply full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Opportunity to manage P&L and build your own team.

Cons

Company was not diversified enough and had too many management layers and costs to overcome dramatic decline in volume with housing collapse in Florida

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the organization lean and don't create so many levels. The matrix management system that was employed rarely works well.

    Upper Management has no idea who does what, or the business at hand.

    Pros

    The money is decent. (For some)

    Cons

    The folks making the desicions have no interest or compasion for the hard working folks that they employ.
    The feeling is that the doors will soon be forever closed.
    "Get out if you can" attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the boots on the ground. Put more emphasis on the underpaid support staff and less on the over paid Sales Staff/ Management. Some are worth, most are not. There has to be a balance.

    I worked at Stock Building Supply

    Pros

    Right now, very few. It's all aorund how the business is going. When housing is booming, it's a great place to work. When it's down, so is morale & long term opportunity.

    Cons

    Inability of the company to effect the key driver of it's business (housing starts). There's nothing they can do about it, and it has total bearing around their ability to compete, offer opportunity to employees, and be a stable organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have too much mgmt for the current business structure. Total employees have been reduced by nearly 90%, but VP titles (or above) are only down 1. Same is true at the operations. Too many chiefs, probably about the right amount of indians.
