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

    Pros

    Colleagues were helpful towards each other. They succeeded if you succeeded. The people I worked with appreciated their jobs and did not take it for granted. I worked in the waterworks department managing several projects at the same time. It can be stressful at times, but the reward is when the projects are done and you can put that job folder away knowing you helped contribute to this or that's construction. I was lucky to have so many knowledgeable colleagues help me learn along the way. There is an internal website for the employees to take advantage of all the corporate discounts available. Promotions from within are possible and given to those who truly deserve it.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times.

    I have been working at Ferguson Enterprises full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, camaraderie, opportunity, work environment

    Cons

    Somewhat siloed with some non-traditional organizational quirks, long hours in branches or branch support positions (45+ per week), immature structure and administrative processes compared to companies of similar size and age, foreign ownership.

    Advice to Management

    Change focus at HQ from getting in done to getting in done right and with appropriated processed implemented and documented. Pay more attention to career planning for all employees, not just the management trainees.

    Pros

    The SPC in Raleigh is an amazing place to work in my opinion. No political drama, realistic expectations and empower employees(no micromanagement) attitude. Health insurance premiums are based on incomes. You can get the standard plan for less than $300 a month for you whole family.

    Cons

    Fast paced, must be able to handle multi-tasking

    Pros

    Ferguson is a great company overall.

    Cons

    Politics undermined the ability to advance skills

    Advice to Management

    Seriously consider having another/an additional corporate location outside of the Tidewater area, to open up the candidate pool and put pressure on career squatters
