    Pros

    Pay. Benefits. Career advancement for men. People can get promoted very quickly.

    Cons

    Long hours. Always being short handed. Upper management is over their heads with the recent acquisition. Employees leaving like crazy and no replacement plans. Upper management is all men. No women except for in HR.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t focus on headcount after a large acquisition. Make your employees feel valued. A little diversication would be nice.

    Pros

    Big Company, fair pay, good benefits. The company is constantly growing so there are a lot of opportunities for advancement if you are willing to relocate and work hard.

    Cons

    Being such a large company, there is quite a bit of red tape and day to day procedural stuff that can get a little monotonous.

    I worked at Beacon Roofing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing much to say. Over all I feel like I wasted the entire of time I worked here.

    Cons

    Dark, inept culture. Very outdated system, managements only concern about making profits and squeeze you as much as they can. No upward mobility. HR is just a paperwork processing department.

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

    Pros

    Nothing at this point. Beacon has owned our company for 2 months now.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible. Management has no experience. Nickle and dime type company. No comminication, they fire the top earning managers and bring in young inexperienced people. Classic buyout tactics. Cut benefits, cut quality people,

    Advice to Management

    None, you won't change.

    I worked at Beacon Roofing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are not many pros besides having a job. If you need something to pay the bills but don’t mind hating most of the people you work with then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Corruption from the top down. For a Fortune 500 company I have no idea how the SEC or IRS hasn’t slammed them into the ground by now but it will probably happen at some point. They buy a company up and give them a week of training and they leave. Switching everyone to a crappy DOS system from the 80s. Do the right thing that is a legal obligation and suffer the wrath of the corruption and cover up ethics beacon so willingly provides.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and bring in new management.

    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.
