    I have been working at Pella full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Hard work doesn't go unrewarded. Can work yourself into management from the factory floor. Pay and benefits for manufacturing positions very good.

    Cons

    Long hours. Non-climate controlled environment. Very hot in the summer. Tendency to hire inexperienced, fresh-from-college Department Managers. Doing so makes changing things for the better difficult because no one is in one place long enough to understand what they're "fixing".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the operators if you want their respect. Proving you're the boss will get you nowhere because they know if you're unable to produce 'the numbers", you'll be gone. Not them. If you don't have their respect, you won't get "the numbers".

    I worked at Pella

    Pros

    Great product and educational resources. Management does not micro manage, however salesman are given high sales objectives. Company tries to treat their employees well.

    Cons

    A few employees tended take advantage of the laid back management style. Some of the employees positions are subject to long off season layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can run so lean and mean for only so long , sometimes it would be better to try to hang on to proven performers a little longer
