    I have been working at ProBuild full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive compensation. You work for a large company that has a lot of buying power and has obtained a big presence in the market.

    Cons

    It's a very large corporate structure, and with that comes a definite bureaucracy. It can be very difficult to know who is responsible for certain functions. It can be very easy to be passed off to another person or department when it's perceived that your problem is not their job.


  2. "They didn't really seem to know what they were doing."

    Current Employee - Inside Sales for ProBuild in Yorkville, IL

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

    Pros

    A large, nationwide company with lots of opportunities. They have an established presence in most major markets. Owned by Fidelity.

    Cons

    They did not seem to have any type of plan on how to expand into different markets. When merging all their acquisitions into one entity, instead of taking the best of each company and combining that, they used whatever the largest existing company did.
