    I worked at Overhead Door full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation & benefits were great. I also enjoyed the team-work environment with my co-workers.

    Cons

    The technology (software) is not advanced at all. Management doesn't communicate very well. No room for personal growth within the company. Many are complacent at the company and aren't receptive to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know that the legacy of your product, familiarity of your brand and quality of your product speaks for it self. You all just need to formulate teams that truly believe in the brand and want to push the company forward in the new age.

    I have been working at Overhead Door

    Pros

    Professional upper management and great peers make Overhead Door a great place to work. Overhead Door core values provide a structural foundation for learning and career development.

    Cons

    Lower level management is not supportive of team members. I've witnessed supervisors ridiculing employees and at times were down right rude. Lying and making derogatory comments about upper management. Demanding respect and showing favoritism to the under qualified who stroke the ego.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Failing to display professional behavior in the work environment does little for department moral. Remind lower management that a great team starts with an excellent leader. Anyone can be a "boss". Leadership is encouraging, inspires team members and supports growth.
    Lower supervisory roles could benefit from an evaluation.

    Good opportunity for advancement. Nice benefits package. OHDC is a place where it's not so big you don't feel you can make a difference, but still large enough to allow for advancent and career development.

    Cons

    I personally don't have any negative criticism for Overhead Door Corporation. They treat me and my family well, I have a great relationship with my peers, as well as management.

    I worked at Overhead Door

    Pros

    If you enjoy slacking off you can get a way with just about anything before they decide they will let you go. Friendly peers.

    Cons

    It starts and ends with management. They generally lie and underpay their employees while billing ridiculous amounts. They put their people in unsafe conditions along with unsafe equipment. I would not recommend a future at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With low company mural you generally get less production.

    I worked at Overhead Door full-time

    Pros

    It is nice to work for a company with reputable products; The sales group is working hard to make the company the #1 product in the industry; corporate office is in a nice location;

    Cons

    Values are not consistently followed; too many managers including unnecessary levels of management; technology is not up to par; Communication is terrible; Some folks in HR have a power trip with their position and access to information;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO should pay closer attention to VPs to make sure some VPs are not hiding the truth and passing blame onto others by terminating people who are trying to do the right thing.
