Featured Review

Former Employee - Business Development Manager

I worked at BuildDirect full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Executives listen to the needs of the employees. - People team encouraged continual feedback loop and support. - Cross functional work was encouraged and ideas are openly shared with the broader... group. - Compensation was competitive with industry standard. - Teams were supportive of directional changes and provided feedback for optimization.

Cons

None, I loved my time at the company.

Advice to Management

I know BuildDirect has been through several challenges over the years but I respect the resilience of the executive team. Even when there were differences of opinion open dialog was encouraged and... that is rare in larger organizations. Please do not lose the heart of what makes BuildDirect amazing - It's people. You guys are doing a great job.
