I worked at Milgard Manufacturing full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

coworkers were the best, product was good for the most part. Most of the service techs work really hard and too many hours. The benefits are cheaper than most companies but have high deductables.

Cons

micro management, too much overtime, too much turn over, very low morale, management likes to give employees empowerment to make decisions then undermines the decisions constantly in all departments. The philosophy is a joke. Was a good company 5-10 years ago.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

fire all upper management in Temecula, there are a lot of good hard workers there that are disgusted with all upper management. I would keep the Production manager and HR manager, thats it. The

    I have been working at Milgard Manufacturing full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My boss (the only strong leader in the management team and he was laid off). The benefits are reasonably good.

    Cons

    Management is a good old boys club entrenched in the past. Employees are not valued; tenure counts more than talent. Change is poorly implemented, morale is low, departments don't work well together and layoffs have been out of control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Join the 21st century, listen to your progressive employees instead of clinging to the past. Show some respect for your employees. Find other ways to cut costs rather than laying off people in a cold and callous manner.
