    I worked at Boral full-time

    Pros

    Good pay in a strong, steady industry that has been here for a long time and will continue to be here.

    Culture of driving employees as hard as they can be driven without much concern for employee morale. Not a lot of effort placed on making a positive rewarding work environment.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Offered competitive compensation package. Had safety as a top priority. Foreign financial backing kept the US division afloat during several down years. Constantly changing to adapt to changing markets.

    Cons

    Management at almost all levels had very little business or management acumen. Many managers did not have experience or first hand knowledge of the industry they were managing. Often, managers would be heard saying they just hoped to keep their job.
    Product quality has slipped in recent years due to the attempt to produce the same products with cheaper raw materials.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who know the business and who have management experience.
