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

    Pros

    I have just celebrated my 20th Anniversary with Shaw Industries. In my time with the organization I have found that Shaw values thier people, they invest in our development and provide growth opportunities. It is a large organization but the culture is more like a small family business. It's a great place to work

    Cons

    Slow to change with limited growth opportunities in current role.

    I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of lateral opportunities. Good starting salary.

    Cons

    OMT Program: you apply to reapply for jobs after you get omitted. Some OMT's don't make it past 16 months if you don't find a job. Management is different plant to plant.

    Advice to Management

    Set expectations for engineers.

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

    Pros

    Culture is likely the best in the floor covering industry. Leadership is solid and works to improve. Environment is fast paced with consistent growth opportunities. The work is challenging. The company makes great products that are environmentally sustainable.

    Cons

    Slow to adapt to change; risk adverse. Sales people have difficulty understanding comp structure and incentives. There is disparity in sales comp programs within the same division.

    Advice to Management

    Align sales comp with goals, allow sales professionals to earn more income as they produce, create more transparency in sales comp.

    Leadership should invest more time in markets listening to local sales teams and customers... Drive change and take more risks.
