    Pros

    Have decent salary and benefits.

    Cons

    Senior VP likes to control everything. Extreme micro-manager. Needs to her off his high horse.

    Pros

    It was a great job. Talented people. Secure. Good pay and benefits. I had the ability there to contribute extensively in problem solving and improvements plant wide.

    Cons

    The con is we used to be Craftmaster Mfg. and we were purchased by Jeld-Wen. Jeld-Wen is home based in Klamath Falls Oregon. They terminated or drastically reduced the function and capacity of our engineering, HR, customer support and accounting departments. These functions were to be practiced at their corporate office. Jeld-Wen has many plants worldwide and all the plants are basically production and warehousing only. All admin and engineering functions are located in the corporate location.

    Advice to Management

    Our upper management was great. We were a proud and top notch company with an outstanding reputation as Craftmaster. The management and technical people all worked as a team.

    Pros

    Working at JELD-WEN was one of the greatest experiences of my life. They are more like a family than a business. I still keep in touch with many people working there years after leaving.

    Cons

    Klamath Falls is a hard place to live for a city slicker like myself.

    Advice to Management

    None.
