    I have been working at Berkshire Hathaway full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are a self-starter, this is a fantastic company! There is a lot of opportunity for innovation, creativity, and networking, but you must be willing to do so blind and without introduction!

    Cons

    No central network - there are hundreds of Berkshire Hathaway companies that operate independent from one another. That provides great leeway for growth but also doesn't provide much of a source for collaboration.

    I have been working at Berkshire Hathaway full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent money for the work

    Cons

    Work every other weekend, 12's, loud, filthy, plant closing

    Advice to Management

    When I first heard B.H. was buying out P&G I thought oh boy, this good be great or this will be bad. Unfortunately it was worse than I thought. Now poor old Lancaster is really going to suffer from what's happened. Mr. Buffet buys the plant and comes in and closes it. Half is moving moving states, the other half is leaving the country. Yet another good plant heading to China.

    I worked at Berkshire Hathaway full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of young people in the associate program, so the culture is rapidly changing and hopefully improving. Job stability with opportunities for further training

    Cons

    Underpaid compared to competitors. Poor communication between senior management and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Give positive reinforcement to employees who work hard and meet goals, rather than simply acknowledging when employees do wrong.
