    I worked at Masco full-time for 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 for 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!!!!

    I worked at Masco full-time for more than 10 years

    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

    I worked at Masco

    Pros

    Very good benefits and decent pay

    Cons

    Management consisted of simpletons who chose from the ranks those who were the best at brown nosing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really should re-think the processes used for hiring and promoting. The employees who are promoted are those with the biggest mouths who then go on to pick favorites and allow gross abuses of time and money from those select few. It is not an environment conducive to fairness in any way. I was very disappointed in the lack of solid leadership.

    I worked at Masco as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Good experience to build resume, decent pay especially compared to other job options (retail, fast food) available to college students,flexible enough to take classes part time while interning, gym onsite with free fitness classes, full service cafeteria onsite with subsidized prices, frequently allows long-term internships past 1 semester, community service opportunites

    Cons

    Low starting salary for full time hires after internship - can get higher wages by going to a company you didn't intern for.

    I have been working at Masco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company culture is laid back. They believe in work life balance. Masco offers plenty of vacation time for the holidays so that you won't have to use your own vacation time to spend with family and friends.

    Cons

    Depending on what division you work there are limited opportunities for advancement.

    I have been working at Masco

    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

    I have been working at Masco

    Pros

    Easy job. Product training and merchandising in Lowe's stores. Little to no supervision!

    Cons

    Advancement is almost impossible. Many days of just hanging out with no work to do.
