    Unique culture, good growth potential, great benefits, positive work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Tacoma, WA

    ProsMilgard philosophy is about respect, customer service and pursuing excellence. Most people can embrace these principles, but those who can't should seek other employment. Pay and benefits are top tier, especially the employee discounts on Milgard and Masco products. Strong commitment to continuous improvement. Senior management is effectively balances employee, customer and business needs.

    ConsBusiness tracks with the economy so subject to downturns. Could improve training for supervisors. Preference to promoting from within, which limits the influx of new ideas and methods.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore senior management visibility. Broader employee recognition.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Once was good now is a nightmare

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Portland, OR

    ProsEmployees on the floor is the best asset of the company, management has no respect for them but they endure and take of each other the best they can.

    ConsExcessive stress put on employees from the upper management. GM is very unethical and culture will suck the life out of you. Was in high position and was witness to the disrespectful and unethical decisions made to their employees behind closed doors - each Monday actually. Avoid this company unless white and Mormon. This is true and easily verified by anyone who has or is working there.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work; feels like family

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Tacoma, WA

    ProsMilgard is a really great company, home-grown in Tacoma, Washington, by an outstanding entrepreneur who was fond of saying he wasn't in the window business, but rather was in the "people business." This company lives up to that philosophy. The people are friendly, helpful, and welcoming. Compensation is good and bonus plan is generous!

    ConsI do not have any cons

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing as it is working; we're growing, we're leading the marketplace with new product innovation and service levels that out-pace our competitors.

    Disappointing

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Tacoma, WA

    ProsI worked with some really great people.

    ConsExtremely old fashioned company down to the good ole boys club. People are very frequently promoted or passed over for reasons other than merit and talent. Very few opportunities for women and minorities to grow. There is a distinct favoritism shown toward Mormons. Very few employee perks or incentives. Raises are always up in the air (except for executives) or virtually non existent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of the past.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsFamily oriented company, great benefits and competitive pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat all employees equally and evaluate performance based actual job performance and not personal relationships.
