    I have been working at Builders FirstSource full-time

    Pros

    There are good people with good intentions. Training program is no longer. The company went through an acquisition.

    Cons

    The training is below average as most employees do not have a vested interest in your success. They are more worried about hitting their numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Take a little more time to invest in the future of the company. Not everything is about the moment at hand.

    I worked at Builders FirstSource full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They really treated most employees well during the good times. Stock options went to managers. Outside salesmen made great money until the housing crash

    Cons

    They are mostly owned by a couple of investment firms that are pretty ruthless when it came to cutting people, taking out people with 25+ years with the company. Middle management is pretty good but senior management doesn't really care about anyone but their stock options.

    Advice to Management

    Share some of the potential for stock growth with people in the lower ranks.

    Pros

    It's a job in these troubled times and it pays the bills.

    Cons

    Management out of touch. Poor communication. Employees are last consideration.

    Advice to Management

    Might be helpful for employee morale if some of the guys at the top would circulate now and then among the rank and file . . . maybe answer a few questions . . . see for yourselves what's going on out in the yards, etc.
