I have been working at Pella full-time for more than 10 yearsPros
Pay is a little above average...that's about it!Cons
Management doesn't care. All that matters is numbers. Quality doesn't matter, just get the Windows out as fast as you can. During peak season you work when you're told often at the last minute. Off season the stop watches come out. If you can't keep up you're gone!
Most of the people aren't any better. I've had my lunch messed with to the point that I had to throw it out. To this day I can't bring a lunch to work. I have to work 10 hours a day sometimes more with just a few bottles of water to get through. I've been the brunt of every Jewish joke under the sun "get back in the oven" or "go take a shower" are 2 of the more popular ones. Management didn't care. They pushed it off for the lead to handle.
Pella has the potential to be a good place to work. Unfortunately, management is lacking at the very basic levels. The promote an atmosphere of backstabbing and bullying to get any promotion. You don't get ahead based on your abilities. You get there by kicking the other guy before he can do it to you! Corporate needs to come in and clean house! I wouldn't recommend Pella for anyone without the stomach for that kind of environment!Advice to ManagementAdvice
Management is the problem. Corporate needs to get involved to straighten this mess out.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
