    Pros

    Work week Monday thru Friday...all holidays off and coworkers are awesome. Clean building and yard.

    Cons

    Management is inexperienced. Care more about your appearance than what you know and they will hire anyone even if they have no experience

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Don't take them for granted. It's a lumber yard. Let them dress like they fit in with their customers rather than a business office setting.

    Flexible schedule. Ability to work remote in some departments.

    Cons

    Morale is currently very low. Lots of uncertainty during this time of transition (acquisition by Builders First Source) . People are leaving left and right.

    Pros

    Co-workers, Great people trying to earn a fair living and keep the company profitable. Smart and capable.

    Cons

    Highly charged political environment.' Good ole boy network'. None of the CEO or his team communicate honestly. They take care of the executive suite only. Mis-represent the 'truth' about quality and level on contribution to companies growth by other departments or teams. At the sale of Pro build to BFS, CEO granted HUGE retention bonus's given to CEO, CFO, SVP HR and others in executive team. None to employees that keep the lights on.

    Advice to Management

    Become principled and ethical...at some point in your career!

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

    Pros

    Very solid group of people to work with, everyone wants to make things better in IT. Management tries very hard to be supportive and allow you to develop. It is a good group of people to work with and very few bad apples.

    Cons

    IT works very hard to try to meet the needs of the business with 10 - 40 year old technology and skeleton crew to make it work. New ideas are not embraced by the business because they want to stay doing things they way they have always done it. Very little "NEW" is adopted by the business, and no one seems to care. Most in the company would probably be happy going back to pen and paper to do everything.

    Advice to Management

    Don't waste time and money on developing technology and then just expect adoption to occur by osmosis. Support your IT, and don't allow fear mongering around new technology and new ideas.

    Pros

    Good people looking to do the right thing

    Cons

    Lack of focus and promotion opportunity

    Advice to Management

    Speak with a singular voice and put a plan in place that speaks to what you say is the focus of the company

    Strong benefit package, great people, competitive salary, growth orientated.

    Cons

    frequent executive leadership turnover has made for difficult overall goal achievement.

    Advice to Management

    Current leadership is on the right track with more realistic goals, flexible enough to adapt to changing environment. Culture is improving.

    I worked at ProBuild full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Probuild has many great associates from many different legacy company's. The associates always seem to have the same vested interest to support the company in any way possible

    Cons

    Upper management does not take control of negative situations quick enough many great associates have been lost due to upper management not taking proper action to secure the positions.
    Sales management does not push outside sales hard enough to sell the programs that are in place to help earn additional revenue for the company.

    Advice to Management

    It is to late now with the sale to Builders First Source but if any current management does remain they need to take a real hard look at them selves to see what is causing the good guys to leave the company.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, but not great. I like the people I work with, that is the only thing that keeps me here.

    Cons

    They will work you till you say no. Been with the company six years and don't make a penny more than I did the day I started

    Advice to Management

    Check what the market will bear and base salaries from that. The housing market is back, but your salary band width doesn't reflect it.
