    I have been working at Beacon Roofing full-time

    Pros

    The CEO, CFO & CSCO treat employees with respect & make a point to thank you for taking on more responsibility without being asked.

    Cons

    Barely any female execs, many employees don’t practice what they preach although they’ll tell you they do, many upper management are hypocrites and coworkers steal your work and take credit

    Advice to Management

    Don’t be a hypocrite. Stop having one set of rules for yourselves and another for everyone else. Train your managers but letting them manage. Some have no idea what they’re doing.

    Pros

    Safety driven and focused company.
    GREAT benefits, especially the PTO and paid holidays they give you.
    At our branch the management listen to what you have to say, and really do their best to address legitimate concerns.

    Cons

    I wouldn't nessesarily call this a con (it depends on your point of view): The work is very physical esp if you are working on a boom truck. People might think its hard to get up on roofs, esp carrying shingle bundles around up there, but once you do it a few times you start getting used to it.
    Winter hours make your checks very low.

    Pros

    Large company had a variety of interesting benefits.

    Cons

    Promise of pay raise didn't pan out. The buyout happened and we were promised we would not go backwards in pay. I and my colleges went backwards 3 years in a row, loosing thousands each year, due to overtime cutbacks. I have a family to feed, so I was forced to seek other employment despite working with the previous owners for over 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Stop working for investors, and start working for your customers.
