    Pros

    Big company with lots of opportunities for the right people If you're willing to relocate and work above your pay grade it might work out for you.

    Cons

    Doesn't follow through on promises and the pay scale is skewed. Better off if you're a new employee than if you're a 10 year vet from my experience. They buy smaller companies and try to assimilate them with minimal training and high expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees fairly from the beginning and recognize hard work. Reward loyalty instead of taking it for granted.

    Good equipment, good with maintenance on forklifts and trucks,good benefits, decent pay. Very copetive pricing on shingles siding,flat roof and windows. Also vacation time

    Cons

    We used to have a good crew of people. They said nothing would change. That was a lie. The next thing you know we are firing everybody and we have to walk them to thier car! Now you have disgruntled guys running a round with thier heads cut off! No thank you.....

    Advice to Management

    Upper management? Whos that? No one to call when you have a problem or dont know who to call!

    Pros

    Stable paycheck and easy work.

    Cons

    Extremely difficult place to work. Women are not treated equally. Management keeps promoting/hiring their friends and are out of touch; lots of empty suits. Lots of office politics and ineffective HR. They will tell you anything to get you to accept the job, but do not follow through with their promises. The best workers are leaving quickly and morale is low.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and reward your good employees or you will continue to see high turnover and low morale.

    Pros

    Leaving the yard to do deliveries, when you get back you have to do all the warehouse people's work and it gets to be ridiculous because they wait for you to get back so you can do there work. Because they think you have it so easy when you make deliveries.

    Cons

    Pulling all the warehouse employees material to be loaded on trucks the next day because they get lazy and wait for you to come back to do their work.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers better without them having to tell you they're going to quit first

    I worked at Beacon Roofing full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, 401k matching, health & dental insurance. Office was clean, offering snacks and refreshments.

    Cons

    Intimidation from peers and certain members of leadership team. Suffered severe depression due to continuous workplace harassment.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. There are two sides to every story and not all information being relayed is always the truth. Some people will do whatever it takes to cover themselves no matter the outcome.
