    I worked at Baker Roofing Company (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Working environment for the most part

    Cons

    Conflict of Interest within management in the Virginia beach office which poses favoritism for certain employees and direct influence on management decisions which is not fair to all employees. There should be no bias decisions based on personal relationships, especially because that is illegal

    Advice to Management

    I think corporate should re-evaluate the management/office manager relationship status within the same office

    I cannot think of any positives for working at this company.

    Terrible training of new employees and AWLFUL management.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to provide adequate trying to staff. Very unfair practices.

    Pros

    The culture of the company is outstanding. The company is driven to be the best in their industry, but does not sacrifice employee satisfaction and experience for growth. Baker Roofing Company has been able to maintain year-over-year growth while maintaining it as a great place to work!

    Cons

    Parking! But really it's a great place to work!

    I have been working at Baker Roofing Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly. The company provides a lot of health incentives. They have a gym and workout classes. Most of management are very nice and approachable. They offer a lot of training. They have a very nice work environment and have a full kitchen/lunchroom for employees. for field employees the have good training programs. It is a wonderful Christian atmosphere.

    Cons

    Their benefits are lacking. Health insurance is not great. They only offer 2 weeks vacation with no sick pay. Makes it very difficult if you have children. They pay is on the lower end and they are not keen on giving raises. You better negotiate up front because you will be at that pay for awhile

    Advice to Management

    Definitely need to have sick pay and give periodic raises. People work hard for you and they should be rewarded for that. Admin seems to be left out of training and raises

    I worked at Baker Roofing Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has great people Scott Sunday, Dave stout. Plenty of hours.

    Cons

    This company service department is ran by elementary educated individuals, who rely souly on direct action. The management is incompetent in more ways than one.
    Great job if you are 18-23 and you are so nieve you dont know the rest of the world is yours. I put a few years in this company in greensboro off industrial village drive. Alot of good memories and good people . But the management is irresponsible and just pure down syndrome ridden.

    Advice to Management

    Read a book. Broaden your life just a tad ..

    I have been working at Baker Roofing Company full-time

    Pros

    Great and honest people who work hard. The company is interested in internal promotions. The Raleigh facility is a nice office with a nice gym. The environment does not have a "corporate-y" feel, which for me at least is good.

    Cons

    I'll just say if you're a normal office employee who has little to do with roofing (like accounting, marketing, hr, etc) this may not be the place for you. The pay will be on the lower end for you.

    The benefits are not where most other companies are (2 weeks vacation, no sick days, not even the day after thanksgiving is off).

    My biggest complaint would be that the environment is very inflexible. You are expected to put in over 8 hours a day (8-5 schedule). This is definitely an environment where you will feel inadequate if you don't show up early and leave late (some people will stay at the office for 10 plus hours a day) regardless of the work you put out. The work-life balance is just not up to par with other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Give more PTO, or AT LEAST some forgivable sick days to full time employees. Recognize that hours on the clock don't necessarily mean good quality of work. Understand that work-life balance is crucial for company retention (especially for those employees with young children).

    Must of the time you will get over 40 hours, decent pay raises, easy to advance.

    Everyone needs help, hiring more people within the ranks to move up to help managers.
