    Pros

    Great benefits and positive staff.

    Corporate is slow to make decisions which negatively affect its customers.

    Stay focused on delivering value to customers and less on creating barriers that affect how quickly the staff can deliver to the customer.

    Pros

    Fair benefits, wonderful non-C suite people, great location, excellent work-life balance, nice office space. Opportunities to gain diverse experience early in career. Great place for early career development.

    Cons

    C-Suite execs completely out of touch with the realities of the business. Empty suits playing businessman/woman. Linear thinkers who arrived at the top by riding the market growth wave. Don't stay past the 10 year mark - get your experience and move on. It is a very insular world. Advancement is not meritorious.

    Advice to Management

    Check your ego at the door and stop bullying people. Everyone is afraid of you and therefore you don't get honest feedback. The perception is that you think you can do it all alone and don't need any input from your leadership teams. Look in the mirror and check your ego. Company performance under your tenure is underperforming the market. That's on you. Stop telling all of your employees about all of your vacation houses or that you bought your 16 year old a BMW or how much money you have! The expression "tone deaf" was written for you. You are getting rich on the backs of the people you bully all day long.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good place for career growth and transformation. Good location, and good US presence.

    Cons

    The work can get boring at times. It is difficult to be very excited about manufacturing building products. Nonetheless the ability to move around within the company generally counters this.
