    I worked at Boral USA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary and a new truck and phone and decent coworkers. But that's about it. They will put your through a long tedious hiring process and they will make you believe that they are a cut above the rest but they are definitely not!

    Cons

    Horrible service from managers and no care for the employee. Been lied to on several occasions from multiple cocky coworkers on several different issues don't waste your time and effort for a long hiring process with a short job life.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and do t sugar coat the service capabilities.

    Pros

    Good pay, fair to employees laid off, emphasis on safety through the organization

    Cons

    Many of the US operations are struggling to recover from the recession, so there is continuing restructuring with lots of experienced people being let go over the last few years. Top management in US has very short term focus with no clear strategy forward, and limited experience with underlying businesses. The same seems to be true to some extent at Australian parent as well.
