    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.

    Pros

    No pros at all! nothing good about this company at all.

    Cons

    Where do I start is the question. If you want a job where your opinion, work ethic, work experience means nothing this is the place for you. You will
    Unfortunately work under poor leadership who’s only concern is the almighty dollar and its shareholders, which is mentioned on a consistent Basis. Branches are always short handed to save on headcount but the demand to produce is a constant conversation. Typical doing more with less mentality. Work life balance is a joke. They don’t care about their employees or employee families. The company is run by a bunch of Corp bullies who only look at numbers and not whats actually happening at the ground level. Best decision I ever made was to run from this dysfunctional organization.

    Advice to Management

    None you won’t change

    I worked at Beacon Roofing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There wasn’t a single component of my role that improved under Beacon leadership.

    Cons

    Awful company, Period. I was a loyal long term employee when we were acquired by Beacon. I gave it four months before I gave up and went to a competitor.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new career. You’ll be going down in flames soon.....
