    I have been working at Milgard Manufacturing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    a paycheck , health benefits, local company. Co-workers are amazing. Air Conditioner, vending machines.

    Cons

    Company cannot meet deadlines and lies to it s customers. High turnover. Employee favoritism. Inept management. This is one job that I will gladly put behind me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking so highly of yourself. And actually listen to the very people who are representing you and The Masco/Milgard name.

    I worked at Milgard Manufacturing full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Employees on the floor is the best asset of the company, management has no respect for them but they endure and take of each other the best they can.

    Cons

    Excessive stress put on employees from the upper management. GM is very unethical and culture will suck the life out of you. Was in high position and was witness to the disrespectful and unethical decisions made to their employees behind closed doors - each Monday actually. Avoid this company unless white and Mormon. This is true and easily verified by anyone who has or is working there.

    I worked at Milgard Manufacturing full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked with some really great people.

    Cons

    Extremely old fashioned company down to the good ole boys club. People are very frequently promoted or passed over for reasons other than merit and talent. Very few opportunities for women and minorities to grow. There is a distinct favoritism shown toward Mormons. Very few employee perks or incentives. Raises are always up in the air (except for executives) or virtually non existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the past.

    I worked at Milgard Manufacturing full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    coworkers were the best, product was good for the most part. Most of the service techs work really hard and too many hours. The benefits are cheaper than most companies but have high deductables.

    Cons

    micro management, too much overtime, too much turn over, very low morale, management likes to give employees empowerment to make decisions then undermines the decisions constantly in all departments. The philosophy is a joke. Was a good company 5-10 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fire all upper management in Temecula, there are a lot of good hard workers there that are disgusted with all upper management. I would keep the Production manager and HR manager, thats it. The

    I have been working at Milgard Manufacturing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My boss (the only strong leader in the management team and he was laid off). The benefits are reasonably good.

    Cons

    Management is a good old boys club entrenched in the past. Employees are not valued; tenure counts more than talent. Change is poorly implemented, morale is low, departments don't work well together and layoffs have been out of control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Join the 21st century, listen to your progressive employees instead of clinging to the past. Show some respect for your employees. Find other ways to cut costs rather than laying off people in a cold and callous manner.
