    Pros

    Potentially interesting portfolio of brands and products.

    Cons

    A CEO who should have retired 5 years ago, can't decide if it is a disjointed collection of buinesses or an integrated company, of late there is a penchant to 'go back' to the holding company model (which has totally run out of gas...). Indecision, paralysis and mediocre talent at the Sr Leadership level equals a company to stay away from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Board of Directors needs to be much more hands on and work with the current CEO to find a new leader outside of the company. Fresh blood must be brought in at the corporate VP level, and quickly. The CEO needs to be much more critical of how strategies are being deployed in the company.

    Pros

    Dress down Fridays, coworkers were the best. They do hire and promote from within, so if you want to move up you can, or switch to a different department. Decent product just sometimes the level and cost of servicing it is not considered when new product is offered.

    Cons

    no raises for years or they were very small. Micro-management became more the norm after Masco took over. If they want you out they will find a way to get you, I've seen it numerous times-Don't make upper management look bad, even by accident. Made bonus' impossible to achieve. Took away almost all employee functions. Very high turnover of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees and the customers will come. They still had big parties for the dealers but cut all the employee fun. I would reccommend firing almost all upper management in Temecula and some middle management. That place is horrific. The philosophy does not exist anymore.

    No growth opportunity for support personnel

    I have been working at Masco

    Pros

    The health benefits are much better than previous companies; on-site cafe; matching gifts; the company closes for the week between Christmas Eve and New Year's. There is a gym on-site. 4% match for 401k. Annual bonus and profit sharing.

    Cons

    Minimum to zero advancement potential for support personnel. I have never had a performance review. They are so focused on bringing in good young talent that they make everyone that has been there for years feel undervalued. Support personnel are continuously left out of department meetings, not given any projects, basically made to feel that we are not an important part of the team. Telecommuting policy is not fairly governed.

    Lots of red tape for every little idea you may have, legal has to look at everything and takes weeks to respond. IT Help Desk is in bad shape, but they are genuinely pleasant people. It seems to be a lack of direction.

    The HQ building has so much empty space (waste of money) and should be moved to Ann Arbor with Cabinetry. According to our last all-employee meeting, layoffs are coming AGAIN. Staff are tired of seeing their co-workers terminated. Morale is pitiful. It feels as if there is a constant threat, and there are a couple director level employees who seem to get energized by firing people. These are the type of people that become executives in the company. The "atmosphere" has changed so much.

    It is very heartbreaking as this used to be a wonderful company. I hope that Masco can find its way back, but it doesn't look like it will anytime soon.

    In general, I cannot recommend Masco to any interested support level candidates. That said, if you are an executive level employee, you will probably be quite pleased, especially as there are extra perks for execs. I think the extra perks would make up for some of the low morale, etc. that you will face. So, please don't let my review hold you back if you are at that level. It is only for the office workers that the situation is truly dire.

    I worked at Masco

    Pros

    Masco is a growing, ever-changing company. They are constantly working to improve the way they do business and to improve the customer service they provide.

    Cons

    Because they are in such a growth mode, they often stretch resources beyond their limits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive in creating the infrastructure needed to support change and growth. Clean house, if necessary, to get rid of anyone who is not on the same team or who is not able to produce the results necessary for the company's success. Hire people that can build the teams needed to get the job done right! Automate!!! Keep it Simple!!!

    Pros

    Ability to work independently.
    Flexibility in hours.
    Great heath benefits.
    It's hard to come up with anything else to say positively.

    Cons

    Direction of the company changes like a spinning top.
    Increasing costs of doing business passed down to employees.
    Get some honest useful analytics, and stop the pseudo-analytics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The sales and service arm of Masco seems to be unsure of their identity. Stick with the values we had years ago, when MRSS was the best. Don't sacrifice common sense. End the flavor of the week. Stop making your associates twist in the wind.

    I have been working at Masco

    Pros

    Employees who are highly motivated to take on more responsibilty and work hard are often rewarded with future job opportunities. The latest focus on talent development only works for those who chose to persue development (see cons). Great place to work if you are a type A or B personality.

    Masco is become much more flexible so employees can enjoy better work life balance. Once a stuffy professional atmosphere, has given way to a collaborative, business casual environment that works.

    Cons

    Masco is very slow to deal with employees who "coast" and dont' do their fair share.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team is doing a great job, but the layer of management just below needs to sing the same tune. Not everyone is on the same page.
