Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Right now, very few. It's all aorund how the business is going. When housing is booming, it's a great place to work. When it's down, so is morale & long term opportunity.

Cons

Inability of the company to effect the key driver of it's business (housing starts). There's nothing they can do about it, and it has total bearing around their ability to compete, offer opportunity to employees, and be a stable organization.

Advice to Management

You have too much mgmt for the current business structure. Total employees have been reduced by nearly 90%, but VP titles (or above) are only down 1. Same is true at the operations. Too many chiefs, probably about the right amount of indians.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    It is a large company with good benefits, room for advancement, and it is a casual atmosphere. Decent place to work.

    Cons

    I believe it was mismanaged with too many managers and not enough associates. They did not concentrate on perfecting the things they were involved in before expanding into other product lines.
