    LIttle room to grow within the company.

    Pros

    Fast growing company run on good ethics. Leadership team truly believes in and promotes the company’s core values. Overall positive, friendly culture with hardworking, down-to-earth people. Lots of fun employee events offered. Good benefits and quarterly or monthly incentive opportunities depending on your role. Great place to be if you value being more than a number and want to feel like your contributions make a... difference.

    Cons

    Just like with any growing company some growing pains are inevitable. Not as many company-wide resources and defined processes in place if you’re used to a larger, more established company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what hasn’t worked in the past and take time to communicate and adjust the plan accordingly before proceeding.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Fortress Building Products

    Pros

    Very sales and marketing focused with a positive company culture and many opportunities for advancement. The companies are all growing nicely and an additional company has been added in 2016.

    Cons

    The business model presents some challenges as product is manufactured in Asia and lead times can be an issue for some customers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive towards continuous improvement in operational performance and continue to enhance the work culture and interaction between the different business units.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Fortress Building Products full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company is growing very fast. Very good multilevel distribution system in the US and Canada. Soon to open other markets.

    Cons

    Company is not loyal to their employees. Hiring is based on salary level, not based on capabilities or true experience.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in employee relations agency to evaluate employees, including senior management before you loose the few good people you have. You have a good organization but are not supporting with management or product.
