    Pros

    Great people! Fair Compensation. Quarterly reviews provide regular feedback to every employee.

    Cons

    Weak senior management. Politics within the organization are considered sport. Milgard cultivates conflict between employees believing it makes them a better organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top management need to engage with their employees and the industry. There is a radical disconnect between what corporate knows and what is reality at the individual facilities.

    Pros

    Down to earth people. Management has high level of integrity - Gessel, Sturgis.

    Cons

    Lots of talk about philosophy, but favoritism is given to many individuals. You may get written up for the smallest situation of "disrespecting" another employee and another may have a blind eye turned. HR is way too concerned about "investigating" insignificant issues - people are dragged into rooms for interviews. This creates chasms between employees as each thinks the other is sharing personal information about the others. Dialogue is stifled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a decision! General management changes or alludes to upcoming changes that are very unsettling to employees. Many times they do not happen.

    I have been working at Milgard Manufacturing

    Pros

    People are pretty nice and try to be helpful. Good discount on product.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Benefits are not great. Time-off is below average. No room to be creative or have your ideas heard. Very strict corporate atmosphere. Senior managers create a lot of useless "busy work" that do nothing but keep you from doing your actual job. OK if you are looking for a job but not good for a career.
