    A good company that has fallen on hard times...

    Systems Analyst (Former Employee) Rothschild, WI

    ProsThe people, both internal & external, were the enjoyable to work with. The customer base (builders) were very easy to work with and very appreciative of the work done for them.

    ConsHousing market downturn has severely hurt the company, while it is struggling to regain its foothold in the industry it seems to be regain ground. Management (ownership) is a narrow vision.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to all of your employees.

    Challenging, long hours, atmosphere of distrust.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Wausau, WI

    ProsWas always advancing technologies to reduce injuries and improve productivity.

    ConsFamily run business, always felt like today was the last day, never knew what to expect. Never heard good job, or thank you. Even within upper management they fed information with a wooden spoon, just enough to feed but not enough to get close enough to know what was really going on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward to the people that got you there, instead of nickel raises and unaffordable insurances except to upper management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Rewarding and exciting place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsRevolutionary strategy for long term growth in their industry
    Tremendous flexibility to grow the business
    Direct involvement with customers from sales through move in
    Great work environment - get to get out of the office on a daily basis

    ConsIndustry is in a depression
    Resources get tight when volume drops, and income can suffer as a result
    Sometimes have to work outdoors for short periods of time in bad weather

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to stay focused on the "Redefining the Building Experience" strategy, and look for additional ways to grow the business (especially its income) in the down economy.

    Unorganized

    Very good place to work, but demanding of your time.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFinancialy strong company, forward thinking in relation to where they are going in the industry and the leaders/owners of the company are very qualified for the job.

    ConsWork load is intense, but management does a very good job of leading by example. Among certain groups there is too much petty talk.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNot much advice to give, I have been very happy with the way the way the company is managed. Communication is great and the management team does a great job of creating a sense of team.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
