    I worked at Guardian Building Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paycheck, health benefits and company car

    Cons

    Very sexist company. It is a male dominant work force and women are treated as less than. Every manager I had was male and not willing to train and very intimidating.

    Advice to Management

    Your "knowledge is power philosophy" needs to change

    Good Company with good people.

    Keep giving opportunities to earn and utilize growing decision rights.

    Pros

    Great work life/home life balance at my location

    Cons

    Lack of clear vision from the corporate level down to the branch level.

    Advice to Management

    Branch managers should continue to do what is best for their markets. Corporate level managers need to create a clear vision. Where is Guardian BP going and who are our customers?

    I worked at Guardian Building Products full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Really not much, used to be a great company. Now not so much. Good benefits

    Cons

    Change after change after change. No one knows what is going on, losing identity and market share everywhere. Very negative culture with poor leadership. Most good employees left long ago. Only a few remain.

    Pros

    Love my job, this company generally cares for their employees safety

    Cons

    Susseptable to injurys if you are not paying attention. This work can be stressful at times

    Advice to Management

    like I mentioned before management and supervisors care about safety and happiness of employees. Work hard on improving things to make our jobs easier

    I worked at Guardian Building Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There were many interesting technical challenges and the employees were very helpful. The pay was good and the management did accept and act on suggestions.

    Cons

    This was a very noisy environment. Under some conditions we had to wear full-body arc flash suits with high-voltage shields and full helmets along with double-hearing protection. Sweat actually became a serious hazard.

    Advice to Management

    It would have been helpful to have better security for the electrical equipment room due to the common loss of many pieces of test equipment.

    Pros

    People, Product, and the idea of what it should be a process. Team mentality cultivated and empowered. Support to enable all to achieve personal and business goals.

    Cons

    Process ideas/theories need better tooling to fit with realistic implantation. Support should have more direction and accountability to better define ones expectation.
