    Pros

    Good benefits, steady hours, good vacation time, opportunities to advance depending on being in the right place at the right time.

    Cons

    Some associates take on a lot larger work load than others. It's hard knowing that someone producing a lot less in terms of sales could be making a lot more money than you. To many shifts in management/operating procedures. Some managers are willing to listen to what you want but it's hard to tell if it really means anything to them. Other managers just don't care about your future opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Give more to those that produce more.

    Ferguson is a very good place to work and the IT environment is maturing rapidly. Being a part of this change process is exciting and rewarding as Ferguson moves from family business to 21st century technology leader.

    Substantial simultaneous changes to the work environment and organization structure seems chaotic at times and uncertain at others.

    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

    Lots of career paths available, management is generally supportive of employees who want to expand their horizons and move into new roles.

    Cons

    The HQ tech center annex is overcrowded and uncomfortable. Ferguson also has to share profits with Wolseley PLC, which means Ferguson employees often bear the brunt of poor performance in Europe even when Ferguson does well.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better building with some perks like a fitness center.
