Good people, tedious and chaotic work environment

Product Data Programmer (Current Employee)
Klamath Falls, OR

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

ConsAverage 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 Senior ManagementTreat 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I worked at JELD-WEN full-time


    Pros: Its a stretch to say that there were any pros… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Hire people with morals and brains. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
