Pros

Great people to be around, most of the staff are easing going and laid back particularly outside of the office. Broad range of staff as well, which gives many different viewpoints. Many get a laptop for work. Staff is not competitive with each other, and are striving to work well and develop the business.

Salary is okay, not wholly satisfied. Bonuses and raises are based primarily on performance, but during the downturn who knows. Great cafeteria, the food and staff are really nice. Masco also offers a full gym with several treadmills, bikes ellipticals, free weights, and machines. There is an on-site certified trainer from 8:30-5. Also, offers work out classes.

Cons

Many cuts have been made and job security is a little frightful. There is little feedback or communication on individual performance. It would be nice if there were career mentors available. Tasks seem to be limited to the scope of management, there is little room for individual innovation or thinking. Its definitely a top down approach with a new flavor of the month.

Advice to Management

Considering the economy and being centered in housing, I don't think there is much more they could be doing.

    Pros

    The compensation & benefits package was pretty good at first; however, it kept going downhill after every enrollment period.

    Cons

    The labor board has had to intervene on behalf of the installers twice, and it's my understanding that they will be back for round three very soon. Management tells installers to "fudge" information on their time sheets and does not compensate them for overtime worked. If you are not part of the management click, you are snubbed and given low paying houses to install. The people who benefit the most are friends and family (that are employees too) of supervisors, most of whom have no idea what it means to be a supervisor. Office personnel are not trained to properly do their job, but are written up when they make mistakes. Supervisors are given (or just take) more time off than any company I have ever worked for. Nepotism runs rampid too.

    Advice to Management

    It would be beneficial to the future of Merillat if Kathy Strauss sent a team to Las Vegas to investigate the inner workings of the management staff there. Some training classes would also be of great help to the supervisors, such as Dale Carnegie or supervisor team building, just to name a couple.

    Pros

    Merillat offers many opportunities for travel and advancement. Managers are respectful of employees and will stand up for them. The company provides employees with advanced, up-to-date technology with very little "red tape" for replacement. Now that Merillat is part of Masco, it is very unlikely that the company will be sold or closed.

    Cons

    Merillat makes it very clear that your job is not guaranteed which does not lead to a good sense of job security. The company would much rather fire people than have them quit. Many times communication between departments is poor, but important information is distributed widely through many modes of communication.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management within the company is great at keeping tabs on the people below them without intimidation.
