    I worked at Universal Forest Products full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to gain work experience.

    Cons

    Small minded company that doesn't look out for the little people. Not very open innovation or change. Most people aside from administration, aren't kept in check and do as they please. A very outdated company that needs to be more open to change. Even for entry level positions like most companies they want prior work experience that outweighs the current job.
