    Pros

    Laid back work attire and atmosphere. Offers good benefits and adequate pay.

    Cons

    Nepotism was very difficult to maneuver around. The company lost a lot of good employees because of it. They offer some in house training however most employees are on their own. Employees are expected to deal with difficult coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the nepotism and run company based on merit and hold employees accountable for their actions and reward hard work and longevity without the fear of job loss.

    Pros

    There is always room for advancement in the company if you work hard enough and express interest.

    Cons

    You will hit the ground running as soon as you are hired. Overtime can be required in some departments but they pay you for overtime if you are hourly.

    Pros

    There aren't a lot of competitors in the market for building materials.

    Cons

    The company was too traditional in their execution of their vision, so they didn't view the IT support as a key componant in expansion for the future.

    Pros

    WBS is a family owned company where upper management (all the way to the CEO) will know your name and call you by it. Wisenbaker will do what it can to help employees that are there to help the company. Wisenbaker is a fair employer that is open about market situtations while working hard to grow the company.
    Work hard and be rewarded.
    A strong Christian belief runs through the heart of this company. This company should be around for a long time.

    Cons

    This business runs in the housing markets so the ups and downs coincide. Stress can be high as the work is going nuts or laging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to let your employees know you value them. Keep praying at work parties.

    Pros

    Wisenbaker Builder Services is a company with unimaginable opportunities. The Wisenbakers are a family who welcomes a challenge and is always working to find new ways to be a player in the homebuilding industry. Their forward thinking and willingness to pour their time and profits back into the business creates growth opportunities not only for the company but for the employees as well.

    The size of the company offers something for everyone. WBS has offices in the four major cities in Texas and offer very diverse job duties in each division making it possible for everyone to find something of interest. Growth never comes without frustration but those willing to learn and fight through the rough spots are rewarded and will be proud to be a part or the win.

    Cons

    Wisenbaker offers a great opportunity but in a very difficult industry. I would tell anyone who asks for my opinion that homebuilding will not always be easy and don't expect everyone to be pleasant. Homebuilding is cyclical and every company has to fight to be competitive so if your on the front line you cant be weak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always keep the people first. Everyone needs to know how they are performing with constructive criticism and appreciation given anytime each are deserved. also, a person has to grow with the company and the only way that's possible is with your support and training.
