Office Manager (Former Employee), Virginia – July 23, 2014
Pros: dental insurance
Cons: lay off frequently
There was no training in the beginning, I didn't know what to do or where to start. Went through several general managers and office staff. Never knew from day to day if I was going to be let go. Insurance is very expensive . There was alot of disrespect from co workers that was never addressed, I do not recommend this company if you are seeking a long term career.
Career Development (Current Employee), Raleigh – July 12, 2014
Pros: excellent company culture, amazing knowledge and skills in the roofing industry, comittment to employees
Cons: make educated yet cautious decisions about what disgruntled knuckleheads are posting!
This family-owned company offers the best company culture I have personally been part of in my 28 years in the working world. Management and the Board of Directors understand what it means to take care – more... of the employee AND the customer which is almost non-existent in the service industry these days. The company puts resources and comittment behind the employees with constant process improvement and training. It is evidenced by the extensive growth of employees and locations over the past 8 years that this company is doing something RIGHT! It has grown to be recognized as the third largest roofing company in the nation and I, for one, am proud to be a part of this forward-thinking organization. – less
Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee), Raleigh, NC – March 11, 2014
Pros: great work environment, pet friendly, family picnics
I have been working at Baker Roofing Company for almost two years and I can honestly say that I have enjoyed every day. The Baker family is incredibly genuine and everyone always makes themselves available – more... when you’re in need of assistance. Baker has numerous dedicated employees that will go out of their way to ensure that you receive assistance and will even put into place new protocols so that reoccurring needs are met in the most appropriate/professional manner. You can tell how much they value their employees through their communication and initiatives to helping employees succeed in their chosen career paths within the company. Throughout my two years at Baker, I have had numerous opportunities for growth in my department and have gained invaluable experience that will help to shape my career goals. – less

Manager (Former Employee), Nashville – May 22, 2013
Cons: horrible work environment
Other reviews are spot on. Baker will hold back all important info about employment at the interview. Health insurance is unaffordable $800 / month for family. Weekly meetings, GPS tracking on management – more... vehicles, micro-management at its greatest level. Always worried if today will be your last day! No support from home office in Raleigh, yet they expect results as if they were supporting. Board of Directors makes decisions based on what will make them richer, no concern for employees. Turn the other way and run, take a pay cut to work somewhere you are appreciated. HORRIBLE COMPANY!!! – less
Director of Service (Current Employee), Nashville, TN – May 10, 2013
Pros: good pay
Its great money with some opportunity for advancement if relocation is an option for you. Management is very demeaning and tyrant like. Very dysfunctional work place where the leader plays the blame card on a daily basis.
Construction Manager (Former Employee), Charleston, SC – May 2, 2013
Pros: established company
Cons: hostile work enviroment, poor upper management
Over all the company isnt a bad company to work for. Insurance is way over priced and benifits are lacking. The S.C. office is corrupt starting with a GM whos steals from the company and claims to have – more... your back if you have his, then tries to get you fired at every turn. Worst roofing company office i've ever worked for. If you you have a college degree and know nothing about roofing your could be a project manager here. My congratulations to the Bakers for a well established company, just too bad a hand full of corrupt people at one branch that ruined my experience there. Perhaps if i lied and claimed i was at work while im appling for a job at Peterson Dean, or taking off to go out of state to see my son. Sure would have been nice if i was the GM and did all this and still got paid without using my PTO. – less
