    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).

    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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management sometimes is overwhelmed , slow when moving from job to job, does not always have the right tools.

    Advice to Management

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

    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!
