    No work-life balance, under paid, doesn't care about the employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees/workers. Just because you are management doesn't mean you are smarter than everyone else. Give your employee incentives. Contribute to the 401K

    Pros

    None. If you are a serious project manager, avoid this place like the plague.

    Cons

    No interest in best practices or standardized methodology. Before you come to this company, check out their PMO, if there is one. If there isn't one, stay away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage your resources. Don't shove projects in with unrealistic timelines.

    I have been working at Atrium Companies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people have worked here. There were good product lines, but they have not been updated.

    Cons

    Services for customers have been dropped. Good people are being cut. If there are replacements, the new staff earns less and drinks the company Kool-aid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    (Owned by a capital company.) Learn the building products business. There are plenty of Managers analyzing excel spreadsheets, but the actual Leaders are almost gone. Either sell the company back to a window business or hire people who know the industry and know how to lead.

    Pros

    You aren't working nights or on the weekends :)

    When you do work you don't know if it's going to even be used. Or if it is it will change 100 different times.

    Better prioritize your projects. Get out of the 1980s
