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

    Pros

    -If you want a place to learn, that has challenges, and is dynamic, then Stonewood is a great place to be on the Cape.

    -Good pay, good opportunity to share ideas

    Cons

    Sometimes it can get hectic with seasonality .... lack of help on shoulder season.

    Advice to Management

    Get a 1 sales manager, Product benefits program for employees

    I have been working at Stonewood Products full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All my fellow employees are so easy to get along with. I never hear anyone raising their voice and if anything laughter is most common. It feels like a family here. I always feel that I am appreciated for the work that I do. Being a single mother it is hard to find a job that understands life circumstances but I definitely found it at Stonewood Products.

    Cons

    There are really no solid cons to speak of. The only thing that I can think of is that the office can occasionally be chilly in the winter, does that even count?

    I worked at Stonewood Products part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you love the comfortable building environments, this place is for you. In some occasions, we got the free meals order by our employer. They also host a cookout at the outdoor showcase front of their big and beautiful office-house building. The co-workers are friendly and work with me well.

    Cons

    An experience for me as a deaf person, not really fit in because of communication. They all, of course, does not know ASL, American Sign Language so we have to communicate through our smartphone devices. It is not a really an issue because I focused to work at the most of time.

    Pros

    I have been an employee of Stonewood Products for ten years this October. I am not sure about the negative reviews posted here because I fell Stonewood Products is a wonderful company to work for, providing fantastic opportunity for advancement and for achieving professional goals. Both my direct manager and the company President, are always receptive to my feedback and supportive of my decisions within the company.

    I have seen Stonewood Products grow from a small business with one location and a sales trailer to a wonderful business with multiple locations, new offices, and new opportunities. I look forward to continuing my career with Stonewood Products for many years to come. Take my advice, check Stonewood out!

    Cons

    In all honesty, I don't have any.

    Pros

    Coworkers, customers, 401K, occasional free lunch.

    Cons

    CEO-idiot
    Management-incompetent and powerless
    Policies and procedures-constantly changing on the whims of the CEO. Did I mention that he's an idiot? Too many hockey pucks to the head perhaps.
    Benefits-no dental? Seriously?

    Advice to Management

    Develop backbones. If you keep running around in fear of your jobs and afraid to speak up and disagree with the little fella, nothing will ever improve or run smoothly.

    Pros

    great people to work with, knowledgeable owner, good location, beautiful office space, enough work to fill your day

    Cons

    there are more desks than there are employees, a few more dedicated sales reps are needed, an updated computer system would prove helpful

    Advice to Management

    i agree that the first review must be from a vengeful employee - the owner is willing to help anyone and everyone in the office and is good at explaining what he wants done

    Pros

    There are good and very smart people to work with, brand new building that fosters a good future, cool and interesting products, cape cod lifestyle

    Cons

    Computer systems need to change as they cant keep pace with changes in 21st century, also, hire a few more better employees for front end if possible ( its hard these days)

    Advice to Management

    Get a new computer system for more efficient processes
    P.S. The 1st reviewer must be angry or vengeful. The owner is helpful, and donates more to charity than anyone I know! Thanks for a great experience.
