    Pros

    Interesting work. Good ownership. You can take pride in the high end product made at this company. their product goes into multi-million dollar homes.

    Cons

    Shaky systems. Poor teamwork. Lack of clear visions. Projects are started and then never completed. Poor quality incoming material makes it difficult to produce a good quality product without extra time and effort.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to production employees. They work with the product every day. Identify bad vendors and work on replacments, their are plenty of suppliers looking for the amount of volume in some products you purchase.

    I worked at Weather Shield Manufacturing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good hard working and helpful people. Self insured, provides good healthcare at fair prices

    Cons

    Family owned, family comes before the company. Underhanded owners Took union lead persons, made them non-union supervisors. made unreasonable offer on next contract. Forced new supervisors to run manufacturing when union went on strike and eventually closed the one union plant of nine total locations. Also bought competitors and eventually shut them down while retaining ownership of respected brand names.

    Advice to Management

    pointless.


  3. High turnover equates to no commitment to retention practices.

    Pros

    Exciting products, fast paced environment, autonomy are hallmarks of the sales organization. Good communication and feedback throughout the company keeps everyone informed.

    Cons

    Too much turnover in upper management. Base compensation should be better for what is expected of their sales force. Can achieve highly if you have the right territory

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the customer more. They are the keys to success.

    I worked at Weather Shield Manufacturing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great engineering group, very nice corporate office environment. I had a full-time internship and the learning experience was good for a larger company.

    Cons

    The company is a little old-school and stuffy for a non-metro corporation. I wish I could have had a more well rounded experience while being in school still.

    Advice to Management

    Younger employees value culture, freedom of expression, and the ability to contribute creatively. Take or leave it, it's an untapped resource for any company.

    Pros

    You do good work, you will eventually be recognized or promoted.

    Cons

    Lots of game playing by owners and management. As of right now not a lot of hours due to slow economy. No 401 k match, no holiday pay, no raise in 4 years, took 20% of pay. Benefits have gone backwards. Owners care about owners, not anybody else. Incentive pay is a joke, they adjust it so its not possible to hit it. Nobody cares about quality cause are not treated fair

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, people will work harder if you pay and treat them right. How about profit sharing? The quality would go way up but you would have to part with some of your millions. You run your company like its the early 1900's. No forward thinking. To have employees that care you have to honestly care about them with your wallet and benefits.

    It's a step up from being unemployed (but not much of one)

    Pros

    In this economy, if you need a job, it is one. But if you have a choice or other options, use them.

    Cons

    Promotions are based upon beauty contests that have nothing to do with experience or competence. Yearly bonuses? Try a $10 coupon for Butterball Turkeys. Home life? It can and will be destroyed by the lack of time you have for yourself. Support from your superiors? Forget about it. Job security? I would not make any purchases where you have payments stretched out over more than a few months as they have a tendency of downsizing or eliminating positions without notice. Wage freezes were the norm for years prior to the economic downturn.

    Advice to Management

    This could be a good organization to work for if it showed the same loyalty to it's employees that they have shown to the company.
