    Pros

    Clearly focused on the right things to improve the performance of the entire corporation. The new CEO is very bright, experienced, and very focused. He has brought a culture of performance and communication missing for a long time. He has introduced and '80/20 Business Improvement Process' to the organization, which has been the cornerstone of growth and exceptional financial performance of companies like ITW.
    The CEO is also a great listener and coach, which is absolutely critical when trying to change culture. He has brought excitement back to this organization.

    Cons

    They really need to spend more resources on the development of executive and mid level management. There is a lot of talent inside the organization, they just need more help in understanding what the new expectations are, and help in understanding the new tools.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing, and keep communicating.

    Pros

    Great associates to work with. Position provided an excellent work life balance. Corporation has great employee benefits program.

    Cons

    Divisional management under-qualified, in a business sense as well as in people skills. Contradictory company initiatives running parallel. No clear guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look before promoting divisional leaders and make sure that their background match the job description. Hire management with better communication skills.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Gibraltar Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gibraltar owns many different companies that run independently on one another. Combined there are a massive amount of products available to sell.

    Cons

    Corporate management is out of touch with the individual companies and the overlap of territories from all of the combined companies.

    Advice to Management

    Sell out to a better company that is capable of combining all of the individual businesses into one cohesive company. Move corporate out of Buffalo.

    I worked at Gibraltar Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fair Open atmosphere with an entreprenuerial focus. Plant and Corporate leaders were good communicators and open about changes. There was a constant effort to blend market strengths of various companies within Gibraltar so as to maximize growth. People and family focuses from an HR point

    Cons

    Sometimes constant changes leads to high turnover which slowed down processes and projects. The merging of various plants into various groups was not always planned well and that slowed the process of improvments and growth.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the front line employees. They know more that they are given credit for.
