    I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. Free to be myself. Great lee-way in my ability to make decisions on a daily basis. Exudes trust. Career paths are wide and manageable. Tons of resources and people to help you on your way.

    Cons

    Have to work a whole week! Seriously, I can't think of a single con. Shaw has been the best move I ever made career wise.
