    The work was ok, but the quality of everything went down hill after a while.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at MasterBrand Cabinets

    Pros

    The work is easy and challenging but once you plateau it is very hard to advance within the company. For the most part the people keep you there, but you have to cya.

    Cons

    The rate at which you can advance within the company is dismal, and once you reach a certain point it's all about the butt you kiss to get ahead. The company culture preaches teamwork but I see very few of these attributes being exercised in every day activities. Not only are there shift wars between the employees themselves but some members of management perpetuate this mentality. This company and the plant that I work at has a lot of potential but it doesn't matter because there is so much dysfunction and unorganized chaos on a daily basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more communication between management so that plants and corporate can operate more effectively.

    I worked at MasterBrand Cabinets full-time

    Pros

    Corporate Engineering group was top notch at designing equipment that really made working there nice. Management worked the floor, they were out there to make sure the operators needs were met.

    Cons

    Long hours. You would have to stay way over your normal hours if they needed to get orders out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the people on the floor.

    I worked at MasterBrand Cabinets (less than a year)

    Pros

    None, this was the worst run company I had worked for in my 30 years of management.

    Cons

    They did not know what they were doing. They were throwing everything they could to try and get something to work. They failed and I believe, based on what I was privileged to, that this company has serious problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the upper management in the Louisville Distribution center.

    Pros

    Majority of the employees are very friendly

    Cons

    Absolutely everything. They lie to get you in the door. The pay is border line pathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to talk more. No one has a clue whats going on, because management doesnt tell anyone anything. I was lied to about the position I would be in. Among countless other details. Lack of training and lack of respect for their employees.
