    Pros

    Learning and Development opportunities have been way beyond expectation, even in an economic downturn, the focus on continuous improvement will have placed MASCO in an extraordinary position when housing starts begin to climb in both the US and Europe

    Cons

    can't think of any, this company has been the best I have worked for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing

    I worked at Masco full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Exceptional co-workers are very talented. Reasonable hours and good working conditions. Average salary but bonuses and other perks make up for it. Very diverse and interesting work during the up periods. International company with many opportunities to make a difference.

    Cons

    Current executive management is beholden to Wall Street and makes decisions based on the current quarter instead of the next five years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the company not in the shareholders and focus on product quality!

    I worked at Masco as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting work, Good compensation, low-stress environment. People are kind and approachable as it relates to issues and questions that you may have.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind initially, MASCO could be a bit more diverse, particularly as it relates to gender, but working in a technical capacity it is to be expected to some extent. Your level of advancement is tied directly to how diverse your skill set is, if you are in the technical side of things, its advisable to have an MBA.

    I worked at Masco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very extensive training for all employees. There is an open door policy and out of all of the companies that I've worked for, MRSS has had the greatest level of communication about what is expected, company policies, perks and benefits, etc. Company also paid for a large portion of medical/dental/vision which made for a rude awakening when I left for another company. Kudos to Masco for still providing quality benefits at a reasonable price. Fun career and would be a great place for young, single, energetic people.

    Cons

    At times, the workload exceeded the time allotted to complete. Some sales territories cover a large geographical area or require a lot of road time due to traffic patterns. For people with families, look to spend a lot of your own time invested in completing your job well, and less time running children to soccer games, school functions. I recall a time when I was asked to "quickly run over to" another store in my territory, to report some needed information about a product set. It would have taken hours to get there and report the info due to distance and traffic. There is some level of frustration completing tasks in one territory differently than another, in a timely fashion based on the territory set up. BE FLEXIBLE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing. Overall, MRSS is an outstanding company, known for producing good results for their customer.

    I have been working at Masco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Comprehensive benefits, pay, and other 401k perks.

    Cons

    Employees can become a number if you are not in a high level position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the issues that your lower level staff point out, take their word when things are working correctly and validate their contributions. Many times through process improvement, the high level managers disregard the information provided from their staff, then they will hire a consultant to say the same thing. Very frustrating. Also, the performance reviews are a joke!!! Never once did I receive a review that actually mattered or matched my current contributions!!!!

    Pros

    benefits, vacation/personal time (if you are able to take it)

    Cons

    no training, no work/life balance, no communication, play favorites (not based on working hard). Not for the long term. No promotions but want you to supervise others...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to dept. morale-dept. consists of more then your favorites-distribute work evenly to everyone
