    Pros

    Pay is good, considering the area is not expensive to live in. Co-workers are helpful in training new hires, as well as temps. Opportunity to get a nice incentive at the end of the year.

    Cons

    Lack of communication of management. The harder you work,the harder they want you to work. Favoritism & drama make the place feel like a social experiment gone horribly wrong. Advancement opportunities exist, if you are willing to jump. Long hours 10-12 in peak season.

    Advice to Management

    ask the workers questions about operations privately (1-on-1). Be honest & reward hard workers 1st. Higher moral equals higher production. Lose the "us versus them" attitude.

    Pros

    Non, Horrible place to work, there's no organization and no management I was in training period and decide to leave.

    Cons

    It will take for ever to list them, the way I see it's just a matter of time for filling for bankruptcy again.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck.

    Pros

    Some Great, hardworking people are employed there

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    (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.
