Disapproves of CEO

Pros

There are good employees who work well together. You really get to develop relationships with customers. Working as a team builds comradery between employees.

Cons

Upper management tries to call all of the shots which turns the branch manager into a puppet. Micro management is common. There is so much emphasis on having the fewest employees posssible to keep the operating costs down but this leads to low morale from less employees having to do more.

Advice to Management

Let the branch manager do the job you have hired him to do and trust his abilities. Choosing employees because of experience should not trump character issues, effort and teamwork.

    I worked at Beacon Roofing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very few pros... a few good people that's about it

    Cons

    Very high turnover. Higher management couldn't care less about employees. No recognition, no feedback just nothing. No long term plans, no vision its like the blind leading the blind. The Head Office staff in Montreal are all inept and incompetent;

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Try to reduce turn over. Don't let the good ones go. Learn to hire the right people
