    Avantages

    -In my experience at the company there has been a huge amount of autonomy. I have not been micro managed or had to spend time with reporting any progress or job tasks. - Decent earning potential once you're up to speed with your sales pipeline. With new employees they make a good effort to support you until you get there, although you definitely want to make it past the "training salary" as soon as possible. -... Good basic training when you come in to the job. - Most people at the company are willing to answer questions and help you out when you're new.

    Inconvénients

    - Some of the company processes between the sales and job production are difficult to maneuver. As Penfolds takes estimators on without any prior experience it can be difficult to price jobs correctly/ notice all nuances that experienced pros might. This can lead to budget overruns and problems during the production of jobs sold. - At more advanced levels there is a lack of technical training to be able to... troubleshoot roofing issues and actually be confident in your advice to potential customers (if you're someone without previous roofing experience). - Not much for office culture - not a problem though if you're someone who likes to get work done and go home at the end of the day. - Can take a while to build up a sales pipeline and start getting decent deals. Can depend on when you come in to the company and whether there is quality leads available for you in your assigned geo.

    Conseils à la direction

    - Invest in further training for employees to gain relative job skills - Show appreciation to employees who are doing well but not yet top sales performers

    Avantages

    Great company to work for. Good work environment.

    Inconvénients

    The company needs to invest in more office workers in some departments, they are lagging behind in some aspects. Also they vehicles that some departments use are old and dying. We recently had several break downs and had to scramble to find another vehicle to use while the other van is in the shop. I suggested to slowly phase out the old vehicles with the new as they break down.

    Conseils à la direction

    Need more office workers to help out.

    Avantages

    Employees doing the actual roofing work are phenomenal as well as office staff. Roof quality is of the best in the lower mainland

    Inconvénients

    Unstable employment. Unfair favoritism. Lots of finger pointing instead of focusing efforts on resolutions. Pockets of certain people are lined heavily resulting in expensive roofs which are harder to sell for the sales, under paid office staff, high turnover rate. Management guiding the company is VERY near sighted, unprofessional and quite ignorant of internal processes and concerns. Employment standards, labor... relations and immigration would have a field-day if the right people speak up (but that will probably never happen, Penfolds cuts cheques to keep mouths shut)

    Dérouler

    Conseils à la direction

    Realize that accountability has to start from the beginning - those who sell the roof. Realize that instead laying off, using inexperienced office staff and treating them poorly you may want to hire professionals, train the existing ones better and you'll reap the benefits of long term employees. Casting them aside when the company isn't doing well or the weather isn't cooperating isn't the way to keep good people... around. Stop making foolish, unplanned operational decisions which are not thought out and start to enlist the help of members of the staff for guidance... you NEED IT! For the future of the business, stop being greedy, pay the roofers fairly instead of taking their bonus programs away from them. Start giving employees something to work towards, not a "no raise" policy but here's a bonus program instead (which was never truely expected to pay out or trusted by anyone as everyone there knows the numbers are always skewed for the benefit of the company). Long story short. Stop being greedy, decrease overhead dramatically, drop required GP levels to sell more roofs, pay quality employees properly, hold sales staff accountable and revise their commission structure (eliminate corridor managers all together). And hold an anonymous peer to peer review to really capture employee thoughts on the management and structure of the company. Because they all know you can speak your mind without repercussions. Potential is there but change needs to happen.. the name can only hold the company up for so long because it sure isn't the management as of late.
