    Pros

    Cares about employees, great PTO, access to internal job postings, involvement in the community, competitive salary, employee continuing education opportunities, and great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Most advancement opportunities for managers requires moving to corporate headquarters.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on developing talent at all levels of the organization. Don’t assume that someone would not be willing to travel or move for advancement opportunity, just because that has been true in the past. If they are qualified, reach out to them.

    I worked at Benjamin Moore full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People I worked with were generally great. Expectations were high and we worked hard to reach them.

    Cons

    IT Leadership barely understood business problems, business leadership did not understand technology, and PMO did a fantastic job of deepening gaps between all involved. Opinions were crushed and internal expertise was stifled, and good people were sacrificed on the altar of bad decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Surround yourselves with people that have done things before. Listen to their experience and don't be afraid to succeed.

    I have been working at Benjamin Moore full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Good vacation, work hours, and we sell the best paint in the industry.

    Cons

    Finance department has no leadership.
    Performance within finance department does not matter.
    No pulse in the department.

    Advice to Management

    Can someone please look into the Finance department. There is zero leadership or communication from the top. Not sure how you have bosses that have no social and management skills. The environment is absolutely toxic due to the lack of leadership. It’s very concerning that this department has been completely ignored over the years.

    CEO keeps telling mid to low level employees - "If you post a bad review or complain about your current work environment, just quit and find another job."

    What if the individual enjoys working for the company but due to ignored complaints about upper management in their department, they turn to this site.

    There is no such thing as a bad company just bad leadership that causes employees to leave and complain.

    Pros

    Good hours, good customers, don’t really have much else to say.

    Cons

    General manger only think for themselves. No teamwork, no real training. Some owners need to rethink who they hire for management. Favoritism is very obvious, not treated like an assistant manger or included in anything.

    Advice to Management

    Should make sure that people are treated equally... not like dirt...
