    I have been working at Beacon Roofing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are not many companies like Beacon; great pay, competitive benefits, strong core values, upward career advancement and access to senior leadership.

    Beacon has taken the time to invest in my career and given me the tools and training to grow. I consider myself lucky to work for such a great company.

    Cons

    There are not many cons to working at Beacon; have a good attitude, work hard, produce results and you will be rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    I am very excited about the future of Beacon! I believe in the strategy and feel we are well positioned to succeed.

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

    Pros

    Salary is pretty good, but you work for it, benefits are ok but high deductible and nothing is covered. The salary was the only reason I took this job but seeing now after 3 years not worth it.

    Cons

    Being salaried has no benefit with this company, 12 hour days minimum. And don't call in sick because you will have so many people talking trash about you. Men rule this company, if you are a woman your opinion is discarded, even if you are more educated, masters degree, experience etc. Seen many men promoted to high upper management just because they are in the boys club. No flexibility, constant pressure to bring in more money in sales and collections. Never given any positive reinforcement. If you do well, then they want more and more. Never enough. Cash flow problems but they can still pay out six figure bonuses to upper management while I have not gotten a raise since I started here.

    Advice to Management

    nothing, they wont change, just going to keep getting worse.

    I worked at Beacon Roofing (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good

    Cons

    The salaries are meh. They only follow their set company guidelines when it suits their needs. Many issues with nepotism. I was given a “promotion” out of state and I was super excited. Then a month went by. Then 3. Never got moved. Found out through social media that someone else had been hired for the position. Basically the most unprofessionally run company I have ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with people and don’t look at them as numbers or mouth breathers.

    Pros

    All of the grunts are pretty enjoyable to work with

    Cons

    Management is a joke. Hardly ever saw my actual boss. They have some new hot shot, not even a manager, trying to go around saying he understands, when he has no clue. Especially about having to take a transfer due to a lack of application review and you can all of a sudden not work for the company, but oh wait, it was on your application. Then have already driven over 200 hours with the company before an attempted termination, when you are allowed to drive, you have to go through "get your cdl training" for 120 drive hours. Plus the added benefit of not even starting all of this until 3 weeks after you were suppose to and should have had to from the beginning. Don't forget the racism, sexism, and complete and total unprofessional language that flies around this place as well as no one having any idea how to let the people who know what they are doing, do their job. Can't describe how many times you get blind sided due to impulsive and childish behavior in management. The amount of times they try to rip me a new one because they are the ones who don't know that if there is confusion, then better hold off until the customer is more confident in their delivery choices instead of rearranging trucks, no joke, 15 times in 20 minutes.

    Advice to Management

    Take management and leadership training or just leave the company.
