    I have been working at Masonite International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great health insurance, good coworkers

    Cons

    Reward applicants from outside the organization rather than internal. When getting a promotion the “cap” for an increase is 9.9% of current salary, which in most cases is less than what an external applicant would be paid if hired for the role. Your choice is take the role if you want the opportunity and experience or leave if you want fair compensation. There is no employee training program. It’s different for every new hire and the inconsistency is visible. Inside sales and customer service is pinned against each other due to workload. There’s a “not my job” attitude that is clear to anyone in the departments. Lack of collaboration and sharing of information results in frustration and poor customer experience.
