    Nothing I can think of at the moment.

    Pros

    Thoughtful, friendly, supportive senior leadership that focuses on the customer and tries to respect its workforce.

    Cons

    Long term mandatory overtime. Employees work until they're done--up to 13 hours per day.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a strategy that doesn't rely on working employees lost term mandatory overtime. This is affecting morale and ultimately quality.

    Pros

    Great product, good company reputation

    Cons

    One of the company tenets is "Respect the individual". I don't know how the top leaders sleep at night considering its one of the most disrespectful working environments

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of anonymous surveys that degrade trust. Why are there no women in leadership positions?

    Pros

    Great team of people to work with. Strong commitment to the customer. Good products.

    Cons

    Hit hard by the downturn in housing. As our market kept dropping there were many changes in direction and cuts in headcount. Hard to deal with but understandable as the company (and the industry) were in a fight to survive.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the people working hard to help the organization succeed and give them the tools they need to pursue excellence. Look forward for success in the marketplace, not back to "the good old days".

  9. Loved the family environment structure when Milgard's owned company.

    Pros

    Milgard treats employees fairly and seem to really care about the people who work there. Corporate is awesome but the actual workplace culture in the day to day alot of the actual employees in the office are catty and petty and it is a stressful office environment because of that.

    Cons

    There was a lot of game playing and throwing people under the bus instead of working as a team, and I found this to be true from the top down, it really made me sad
