    I have been working at Milgard Manufacturing full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with . People who work hard and do not bring their own agendas do very well. There have been some bad eggs (posting on this board) but were either fired or left the company. Executives are good people..seem to care a lot about employees

    Cons

    Profit sharing was cut and just recently started up again but not a lot. Lot of changes past few years but looks like its getting better. Bonus program is best I ever had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not assume just because someone is achieving results that they are a good employee. Get rid of bad employees faster.

    I have been working at Milgard Manufacturing full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Milgard is a really great company, home-grown in Tacoma, Washington, by an outstanding entrepreneur who was fond of saying he wasn't in the window business, but rather was in the "people business." This company lives up to that philosophy. The people are friendly, helpful, and welcoming. Compensation is good and bonus plan is generous!

    Cons

    I do not have any cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing as it is working; we're growing, we're leading the marketplace with new product innovation and service levels that out-pace our competitors.

    I have been working at Milgard Manufacturing

    Pros

    Milgard treats their employees fairly and provides a chance to grow with the company. They are concerned about safety and build a quality product with great service.

    Cons

    Slowdown in the building sector has created the need for creative ideas to provide qualtiy products at competitive prices. The company has made good buisiness improvements, but in order to keep costs down, many positions have been lost.
