    Pros

    National company with the opportunity to transfer to almost any state
    Opportunity for bonuses

    Cons

    Too many corporate employees & not enough distribution center staff--ridiculous since the centers are where the money is made.
    Expensive medical coverage
    Minimal opportunities for advancement
    Executive mgmt often makes knee-jerk reactions
    Upper mgmt can be less than professional and disrespectful

    Advice to Management

    Be PROactive instead of reactive
    Just because it's always been done that way does not make it right
    Develop more long-term vision
    Learn to appreciate employees outside of the Cuyahoga Falls building
    Management needs to be more respectful of personnel

    I have been working at Associated Materials full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    AMI has a very complex business model and many people cannot handle the pace of change in the company. To succeed you must have thick skin and be very agile in your ability to handle multiple responsibilities. For those that can rise to the occasion, amazing potential for career growth and learning lie within.

    Compensation structure for salaried employees are above average. Benefits are average.

    The new CEO and senior operations leadership have been excellent in providing a consistent drive and direction for the company over the past 3 years. They are beginning to truly change the culture of the company - no small feat.

    Cons

    Work / Life balance is poor given the agenda and pace the company is moving at. The company is transitioning from a poor / low performance culture over the last 2-3 years so the turnover rate is higher than average as they find leaders with the correct attributes - especially at the plant level.

    Advice to Management

    Continue developing the high performance workforce and culture to raise the standards of the industry. Just be mindful of burning top performers out. Remove the obstacles and thought processes that continue to hold AMI back.
