    I have been working at Benjamin Moore full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * Room for growth
    * Great Co-Workers
    * If you are competent in a field, your talents will be recognized and your work will adapt to match your interests and strengths

    I started doing straight reporting but very quickly branched out into data science and computer science once management recognized my skillset

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is some departments are still rooted in old, outdated ways of operating. There is a tide of change coming, though.

    I worked at Benjamin Moore full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    HQ Office is beautiful and in a great location. Free lunch is a nice perk. Good benefits. Annual increased for exempt employees.

    Cons

    Leadership and senior management is sneaky and not transparent whatsoever. Leadership and senior management is also very unapproachable and patronizing. Very little respect displayed towards middle managers and below. A severe US and THEM environment created by Leadership & Senior Leadership. Had a couple of very toxic direct reports that made working there on a day to day basis extremely difficult. Despite requests made to my management and HR to assist me with managing these employees the support was never provided. Moving on from Benjamin Moore was the most refreshing experience I have had in my career. Cannot believe I stayed there as long as I did. Dysfunction Junction.

    Advice to Management

    Get down to earth with all levels of employees. Treat everyone with equal respect and display this daily. Purge your business of the many toxic employees that hang on and on.....
