    I worked at Masonite International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paycheck, some health insurance and occasional free food.

    Cons

    Old boys club for upper management, some seems to have endless vacation time. "Business trips" with five star accommodations with little office time. No money for promotions, most goes to the top three. HR is horrible, the whole place is a revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother they won't listen.

    I worked at Masonite International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO, Flexible Schedules, Decent Pay

    Cons

    Digital Department:
    First of all, you will start as a contractor and they will dangle full time over you for as long as they can. When good people leave for not getting full time, work is "handed off" to the lucky people still there. Promotions are not give by merit and experience but rather if you're a favorite of one of the managers or not. People are put in management, Product ownership and leadership roles who have no people skills, lack the experience, and routinely have projects that fail. There is a club of managers and they pick their favorites to be in these leadership roles. Hard work and being open and honest are not things that are valued. Pointless busy work with buzz words make you look better than critiquing the "agile" status quo.
    And let's talk about their money management. The end of every year results in budget shortages. This is because people with control over a project budget lavish themselves with the latest computers and equipment when their job does not need such machinery. Why a glorified project manager needs a $1200 mac book is beyond me. This department throws money away on fancy computer screens and "trips" to consultants but can't even get employees converted to full time.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your turnover and take the hint, your management and product ownership are chasing people away.

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    CEO perpetuates the old boys club adage and plays favorites. The workload is high and the rewards are low. There is little to no thanks for a job well-done. HR is basically useless and is pretty much a revolving door of poor performance. Thankfully CEO announced his retirement”.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent while doing a better job communicating. Stop playing favorites. Your employees have good ideas
    - listen to them.

    Pros

    Company strives to have a solid culture, pay is fair, able to work in autonomous environment

    Cons

    Rumors, company tends to react in a knee jerk way and over correct, plants operate on an island and have little true connection to the corporate environment, unable to keep dynamic leaders so leadership at plant levels tends to be lacking

    Advice to Management

    Don't listen to rumors, ask people involved before you react, maintain confidentiality
