    I have been working at JELD-WEN

    Pros

    Comfortable, relaxed place to work; good work environment; fair pay for fair effort; good benefits; long-term benefits are first-rate

    Cons

    Owned and operated by one or two people, so subject to fits of whim and fancy by those individuals; Current economic condition has led to multiple layoffs, terminations, reduction in work hours and salaries

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a stronger effort to retain valuable employees in these economic hard times; be more cautious in acquiring other companies; place a higher value on employees
