    I worked at Stock Building Supply full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to manage P&L and build your own team.

    Cons

    Company was not diversified enough and had too many management layers and costs to overcome dramatic decline in volume with housing collapse in Florida

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the organization lean and don't create so many levels. The matrix management system that was employed rarely works well.

    I have been working at Stock Building Supply

    Pros

    The money is decent. (For some)

    Cons

    The folks making the desicions have no interest or compasion for the hard working folks that they employ.
    The feeling is that the doors will soon be forever closed.
    "Get out if you can" attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the boots on the ground. Put more emphasis on the underpaid support staff and less on the over paid Sales Staff/ Management. Some are worth, most are not. There has to be a balance.
