Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Good people in a changing environment. The company has tremendous potential. They want to change the building materials industry and have the mass to do it.

Cons

Constantly changing leadership. Strategy and tactics from the parent company Fidelity don't mesh with the industry and local ProBuild leadership is not able to say "No". They don't understand how to implement change. They play with concepts such as "Green" but don't live or believe it.

Advice to Management

Set a course that makes sense for the industry. Build the passion. Inspire the field to join in.

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

    Pros

    if you are looking for an entry level position without a chance for a raise in over 3 years. its the place for you

    Cons

    At one time the company was growing and taking care of the people who made it happen. but since the switch over to Denver corporate its been a steady downhill roll. the names and faces chance so often at the top you have to wonder when Marchbank will leave either on his own or from being shown the door. Running a business based upon an ERP implimentation was the craziest thing i have ever seen. I am surprised Fidelity hasn't pulled the plug by now and the way things have been changing. i would expect the sell off within a year or so.

    Advice to Management

    its time to get away from transparent pricing, cut overhead at the corporate level and get back to what made the legacy locations profitable. take care of the people who made it happen.
