    A company in transition

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWhat you will experience will depend on the business unit you work in. There are many very good people in the ranks. Some business units are leaders in their product categories.

    ConsThe company continues to perform poorly. Corporate Senior Management do not appear to have a plan that will put the company back on a path of profitability and growth. The "Masco Business System" is far less tangible than it is portrayed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake the hard decisions and move forward. B School 101 is "Don't throw good money after bad."

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Ehhh... Ok.

    Field Merchandiser (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsI was able to travel the country.
    Reasonably fun when not bored to tears.
    Great benefits.
    Managers were always available by phone.
    Company provided laptop.

    ConsLOTS of travel.
    Low pay.
    Any time i wasn't traveling, I would be stuck helping a local rep and in only one store at a time... BORING.
    Company did not provide phone, even though it was a traveling job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't force in town time to be spent a one store.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Stifled

    District Representative MRSS Division (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits, pay okay, alot of independence.

    ConsJob has changed alot to the detriment of District Representatives in MRSS division since March 2010 sales meeting. Most new initiatives seem to come from Lowes. Now, in order to complete even the simplest of tasks, the rep has to "schedule" themselves to do every task by Friday before the week performed in Lowes stores by inputting in co computer what day task will be executed and who they talked to. Monthly weekend sales service is now part of job....

    Advice to Senior ManagementRequired on-line training programs,expense reports,and travel times are all part of the job. This should be part of the District Reps work day time.
    If your recent job satisfaction survey shows the majority of District Representative dissatisfaction rating than there is a problem that needs to be corrected.

    Great place

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood place to work, laid-back atmosphere and lots of friendly people. Would work here again if given the opportunity !

    ConsI really can't think of any at the time. My position was terminated but besides that I don't have any negative view on the company as a whole

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone at the time. Management is very approachable but not a fan of the separate offices, creates a divide that wasn't efficient

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Low Employee Morale

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent benefits package. On site fitness center.

    ConsRaises/bonues based on how much your boss likes you as opposed to high performance. Morale is very low at this time due to lack of opportunities.

    High performers end up moving onto other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen a manager continually has high turnover within their dept., maybe you should check into fnding out why. Also, perform an employee job satisfaction survey and find out why your employees are so unhappy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Masco Corporate Office

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Detroit, MI

    ProsMasco is fairly good on work life balance. They understand that people generally have a life away from work and are accommodative on time off and professional development.

    ConsCommunication is poor and the "top-down" organizational structure makes it difficult to understand what the strategic vision of the company is. Thus, on a day-to-day basis, its hard to see how your work is relevant, and you don't really feel like you're making a difference or your position is important.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to get to know what lower-level employees are working on and have some dialogue with them on what they can do to help the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Frustrating

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsHighly comped, good development programs

    Consgood old boys network, limited succession planning,

    Advice to Senior Managementmust bring more people in from the outside to give a better perspective on what the company can be rather than continuing to keep the same people who have never worked at an outside company.

    Great place to work but be prepared for a disconnect between employees and management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Fort Mill, SC

    ProsOpportunities to learn the overall operation of the industry. Excellent work times 8-5. Human resources does a great job of explaining benifits and is willing to help employees achive their goals. If you have the drive and ambition to succeed run can learn a lot about the business because other employees are willing to help and give you information about the company

    ConsCommunication among employees and management. Employees are not sure of the goals and management doesn't give an explanation of the current goals. No system of measurment for the daily activities within the organization. Management allows products to be back ordered for up to a year and by the time the product is received customer has moved on. Company culture is not strong because of the management/employee disconnect.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of the office and on to the floor of the business. Management does not understand the employees and doesn't look for opportunities in the organization and for its customers.
