    Pros

    As a large, successful company who prides itself on its stability, Wolseley is able to offer a competitive benefits package which includes medical, dental, vision, disability, retirement savings with company match, paid leave (holidays, vacation, sick, personal, and floating holidays), recognition programs, community involvement opportunities, and much more!

    Cons

    If a career with an organization that rewards performance and provides a stable and supportive environment for its associate’s nationwide sounds good, Wolseley Industrial may just be the place for you. Our people are our biggest asset and share a common passion for customer service, which has helped shape us into the industry leader we are today.

    Current Employee - IT Systems in Newport News, VA

    I have been working at Ferguson Enterprises full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable company, good sales and profit (now, finally), OK pay and bennies, good people and good balance of life even considering on call rotations and weekend work.

    Cons

    4 years = 4 different managers, IT Management reorgs like musical chairs and "different" does not mean better in many cases. Ticket driven, as many IT shops are heading towards, mean many are just cogs in the machine and are treated and feel as such. Profits do not mean good bonuses or raises. Very much a good ol'boy company, it's all who you know at many levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're a plumbing company. You don't need iPads in all your showrooms. Rather than chasing the latest and greatest wizzbang fad ($$$), invest in your people. That expensive new showroom of the future is seen as a lot of people's raises and bonuses that they didn't get.
