I have been working at Shaw Industries full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Big company, small town. Great values and leadership. Industry leader in service quality and, usually, cost. Growing product and geographic diversity. Due for a substantial rebound in volume after many years of sluggishness.

Cons

Too heavy on carpet products in the mix. Difficult industry economics (housing). Strong competitive challenges in base products.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep diversifying, keep a steady hand.

    Pros

    Great company for stability. Very good training and great benefits. Very good, comfortable work atmosphere and is owned by Berkshire Hathaway. Good for product development and overall quality of products are great.

    Cons

    Does not pay well for super stars and tends to keep neutral talent while higher talented employees leave. Raise structure is no very good. Company like to keep people at median regardless of talent. Policy is strict on giving merit raises and thus does not allow much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the most productive employees and reward them or they will leave.

    Continue toward diversity and look outside of the company for new talent.
