    I worked at Masco

    Pros

    Benefits are good, if a little pricy, low annual increases but decent annual bonuses.

    Cons

    With several rounds of layoffs over the last 8 years or more, everyone is expected to do the work of multiple people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest paying better and hire more people. Masco has lost too many talented employees in many areas!

    I worked at Masco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits, low stress. A company that really seemed to care for the employees.

    Cons

    I didn't like the lay offs. The way the lay offs were handled were poor as well. No judge on an employees work ethic or character, just whoever could have their territory covered easier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to field reps more. They are the face of the company. Everyone sees them and they know more of what is going on in the stores.

    Pros

    Flexibility working M-F, good benefits with matching 401K

    As with any company that sells to retail, you have your opportunities and challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good efforts.

    Former Employee - Sales Representative
    Former Employee - Sales Representative

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

    Pros

    You have a lot of freedom and total autonomy in your job. You are not tied down to an office. You do not work with your boss over your head. You go to a different Lowe's store every day, maintain customer service with Lowe's employees, help customers, train Lowe's employees and maintain sets are displayed properly and reset displays. You get a company car, health insurance, 401K with match. The job is very easy.

    Cons

    Low pay. Can get monotonous being in a Lowe's store all day when there are not very many projects to accomplish. Not much opportunity to move up. The organization constantly changes from year to year. Just as you get used to doing things one way, they completely change it on you. They have gone through 3 sets of layoffs in the past 2 years so keeping the job may be hard at this point in time. They seem to have the attitude that they know they pay you a low wage but that if you want more out of your position leave, cause we can find more people to fill you place if you leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the good associates that you have better so that people do not want to leave. It cost more to train a new person than to keep a current good associate. Don't change the way everything works every year or two. As soon as people get used to a system let them do it for a while before you constantly change everything.

    Lean culture is just about dumping more work on fewer people

    I have been working at Masco full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    OK salary, good benefits, some very nice, very talented people many who go completely unrecognized.

    Cons

    Company has gotten so "lean" employees are required to do the job of 2 or 3 people. No promotions - they hire from outside. Build your resume and move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees. Recognize the jobs they do. Promote from within. Communicate.

    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!
