    Pros

    The culture at Masonite is wonderful. Everyone is approachable. It is easy to get along with all of my team members. My boss is wonderful. I have learned so much in the short time I have been here and I can tell that the company values my efforts.

    Cons

    Only con is that when there is a recession, jobs are not as stable.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management is to provide training for those who have been promoted to management positions so that they can learn to manage their team well.

    Pros

    The decor is beautiful making it a lovely 'space' to work in

    Cons

    No real opportunity for corporate positions to "move up" in the company. Pay is on the low side (for IT) and continued downsizing increases work load but no change in pay. Felt used...as a salary employee but still loved my job

    Advice to Management

    Many dedicated employees (in corporate) should have an opportunity to move up such as entry to intermediate to senior position within their role. Not just come in as entry level and four years later basically no change in level position (and pay)

    Pros

    Masonite is a great company to work for. The Finance team is the best I have worked for in my 20+ year career. We work hard but are appreciated as well. If you want to work for a company that values you this is the place for you.

    Cons

    The re-structuring of the finance team is breaking up an amazing team for the North East Region. I'm really sorry to see this change.

    Advice to Management

    I really enjoy the benefits and work style of Masonite. You have a lot to offer employees. Those that don't see it probably haven't worked for other companies that don't offer much.

    Pros

    Best culture I have ever seen, the leadership team is down to earth and supportive, great people to work with. Company is really making progress.

    Cons

    There is a lot to be done. Everyone works really hard

    Advice to Management

    May need to realign people. Some functions have too many resources and some not enough to accomplish the basic needs.

    Pros

    Some of the people I work with are competent and friendly. I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of different projects.

    Cons

    If you are a workaholic then this is the place for you! This company only cares about numbers and spreadsheets. They have no concept of work-life balance. The corporate management team is VERY disorganized. They demand a lot and want things done as you would expect in a large corporation, but things are run like a "start-up". Very little resources are provided... You have to work miracles to get things accomplished. They took their "lean" mentality too far and are down to the bare bones. Find a job elsewhere!!! I'm in the process of looking for other opportunities myself. Coming here was a big mistake.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so "frugal" and don't suck your people dry! Show appreciation, provide training and resources, and be reasonable with your timelines and expectations. People are not machines!

  11. Pathetic place to work, no stability there bringing in new people. They just copy Jeldwin to stay in the competition.

    Pros

    Laid back and easy but nothing to do there

    Cons

    Poor management and no training or guidance!

    Advice to Management

    Seek new management!!! And stop going to Menards or Home Depot to by the competitions like Jeldwin to try and copy and duplicate their doors. You're pathetic with your Copycat motto
