I have been working at JELD-WEN full-time for less than a year

Pros

Somewhat flexible hours. General freedom in how to approach issues. No micromanagement. Very nice and knowledgeable team lead and senior developer.

Cons

Average wages. Little to no advancement (perhaps mostly economic). Hectic work environment. No cross-department oversight of project development. Little communication between departments that are dependent on each other.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat this position (product data programmer) as a skilled position to foster specialization and productivity, instead of a test bed for fledgling programmers looking to quickly move on (higher pay, attention of upper management). This is being done somewhat now, but the past effects of this attitude have lead to many current difficulties. Also, projects need greater attention to base design before work is started, forward-looking goals instead of emergency-based responses.

    I worked at JELD-WEN full-time

    Pros

    Its a stretch to say that there were any pros working at jeldwen, other than the factory had good lighting.

    Cons

    Everything, the management was good, the work was boring and repetitive, you have to deal with lots of temps constantly coming in and out. Also some times you have to deal with multiple managers at the same time and they expect you to complete workloads equivalent to 3 people. If you show that your capable you will get exploited..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people with morals and brains.

    I have been working at JELD-WEN full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    pay is fair for simple jobs, but raises are unheard of.

    Cons

    if top management does not feel you are a team player its over for you. I have not spent any quality time with my wife or kids in months!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more willing to listen and value employees. balance the need to produce products and have a family life too
