I worked at Stock Building Supply full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Opportunity to manage P&L and build your own team.

Cons

Company was not diversified enough and had too many management layers and costs to overcome dramatic decline in volume with housing collapse in Florida

Advice to Management

Keep the organization lean and don't create so many levels. The matrix management system that was employed rarely works well.

    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.


  2. "Fast paced work place with challenges and changes."

    Pros

    Trained personnel in their computer system. Provided staff training and information regarding changes and improvements. Looked for associates to take advantage of online training.

    Cons

    Changes are frequent and you need to be flexible and adaptable to keep up with the updates. It is sometimes hard to get everyone on the same sheet.
