    I have been working at Universal Forest Products full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Friendly Coworkers
    Interesting design work

    Cons

    Pay is a little low
    Impossible to get promoted as a designer; only sales gets promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Designers bring a unique skill to designing manufactured products for commercial and multifamily buildings that are extremely detail-oriented. These workers are valuable to keeping the shops running and profits rolling; you even ask them and shop workers for product ideas because you know of the potential. please treat them as such by giving them some incentive to work. A means of moving up in the company is a start.
