Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to listen and pay the warehouse workers more money if they want to keep people working there for more than short term.

What I like about the company

There are a couple of good hard working people that I work with that make the job easier to deal with.

What I dislike about the company

The feeling of people that work in the office a are better than the hard working men that work in the warehouse. Harsh working conditions in the warehouse ie. Extreme heat and extreme cold. No breaks.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The safety culture needs to be upgraded. They preach it, but do not offer the proper training or support needed. They also use fear as a tool, instead of doing the right thing and going home safe. Beacon desperately needs to upgrade its facilities. We are running out of space at a rapid pace, and will have a hard time beating budget next year. Beacon also needs to worry about replacing open positions in a timely manner, as opposed to having a ""wait and see"" mentality. You can't increase sales with less staff.

What I like about the company

I have great co-workers. We have built a strong group, and try to help each other out. We have worked hard to build a strong branch, and have succeeded in increasing sales year over year.

What I dislike about the company

The company has not upgraded our location in over 12 years, even though they have repeatedly promised to. They are more concerned with buying other companies than it is with maintaining current branches. Beacon makes its management team feel like it has to do more with less. They do not offer the resources to be successful.

Company Culture

Beacon staff gets upset with each other rather than work together to resolve issues. Very unprofessional, creates stress, and reduces productivity.

Gender Equality

Sexism runs rampant here. Affects pay, promotions, respect, credibility... Management does not respond to claims well. Has fired people who won't put up with it.

Career Development

There is no training here for most positions. Sink or swim.

Office / Work Environment

It's dusty, smells like forklift exhaust, but is well lit

Environmental Friendliness

The amount of paper waste at the company is atrocious. They have no recycling program, because it costs money.

Work-Life Balance

Office staff work 10-12 hour days when it's NOT busy. Sometimes you just play solitaire for hours instead of seeing your family, but the long hours are mandatory.

Company Image

No. I'm rather ashamed because of the company's poor ethics.

Job Security

I don't feel my job is stable because the construction industry is so volatile, and the company fires people or forces people out so they can hire less expensive staff. Unfortunately, new staff lack skill, which translates to even less profit.

Handicapped Accessibility

The elevators have been broken for months and no one cares. It's not handicap friendly.

Workplace Safety

Warehouse staff is safe; office staff needs training on how to be safe, and need to take it seriously. No AC in summer, no heat in winter, and reluctance to take care of plumbing issues because of overhead are just some issues plaguing the company.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company is not inclusive. It may hire women and people of other cultures and races, but they don't usually feel welcome.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The entire company needs an overhaul, which needs to be run by people from a variety of backgrounds. There is a reason the company is losing money and why employees are running for the hills.

What I like about the company

Laid back environment, low-cost insurance, interesting work.

What I dislike about the company

Sexist culture, not very diverse or open to diversity. Very few promotional opportunities. Most people work up to a certain position and then choose to leave. Poor quality insurance, HR doesn't take claims seriously, company removes bonuses and refuses to pay people what they're worth.
