Pros

In this era carpet complanies pay well, shaw is one of the best I think, they offer insurance like medical, and Life. Through shaw I had gain some techniques to better me as a leader.

Cons

It may take forever to up the ladder in this company. Most of this is mainly who you know rather than the knowledge and experience you have attained. sorry for my misspeling I am in a hurry.

    Pros

    The pay was great. Good Training. Good benefits. Education benefits.

    Cons

    Poor Management, good ol boys club.
    Unexpected layoff.
    No notice to hardest working, promotions went to the laziest people that sucked up to management.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management should be evaluated by lower management. Most of the midline managers don't get the credit that upper management gets and they are the ones getting the work done.

    Advice to Management

    (1) Step up and removed management level associates that are not getting to job done.
    (2) Start purchased outside software instead of having internal developers drop the ball time after time.
    (3) Start thinking outside the box and stop thinking the "Shaw Way" is always the best way.
