    Strong team environment, good pay and benefits, new HR team, places employees first.

    Gets a bit hot or cold out in the plant during summer and winter.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing! Making a lot of positive changes to the culture. Company is set now for upward projection.

    I worked at Atrium Companies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Liked the schedule. The pay and benefits were decent.

    Cons

    Old equipment, inability to break for lunch, overworked, and certain privileged individuals had to do little to no work. Not paid what I was promised.

    Advice to Management

    Tighten up on supervisors. A lot of favoritism going on where they allow their buddies to do little to no work and pile the work on new workers or those or seem to be afraid to use their voice. if someone is promised a certain pay, they should be paid that. That's criminal. I would also advise you to invest in new extrusion equipment. Less scrap means more quality parts produced. Inability to be flexible on a tardy is inexcusable. Anything can happen. Life happens to us all.

    Pros

    Absolutely Nothing...the second most horrible experience I have ever had.

    Cons

    Allow the CENAs to run the facility. Coddle them and no discipline. Would rather use chemical restraints than have to report a fall. Poor wages

    Advice to Management

    Try running the facility according to CMS guidelines and teach the staff the proper chain of command.

    Pros

    Co-workers were friendly and nice to work with.

    Cons

    At this Atrium location there was no training regimens or very little. Was thrown onto shift to work alone and do processes that I was not fully trained on causing extreme stress on myself and customers.

    Advice to Management

    Re-train Front Desk Manager to properly handle new employees and their training needs.

    None. There is mo stability there. Its who you know not what you know

    Cons

    Pros

    very good company to work for. Would still be there if reduction in force was placed upon the finance department.

    They were hiring un certified workers and Federal Government came in.

    Advice to Management

    They are still open, but with very limited staff.

    Pros

    marketing tools better than most competitors
    quality products
    good corporate communication
    generally fun place to work

    Cons

    incomplete product lines - not meeting national needs for egress, coastal, etc
    sales territories too large to make impact
    current state of affairs losing customers
    not competitive with pricing
    pricing jobs to structured and time consuming, regionals not having any control
    stringent guidelines for cutoffs
    field service understaffed, overworked and deemed unhappy - need to invest in the people who spend time with our customers/homeowners - they are another face in the field representing our company

    Advice to Management

    trim 8 brands to one or two and go for one nationally recognized brand
    add foot soldiers and reduce size of sales territories to properly gain market share
    allow regional managers , possibly reps to have certain % when it comes to job, special pricing
    get the quality = to the price, were have not been there in quit some time

    Not a fan of the Paid Time Off program but I understand it is industry wide.

    Advice to Management

    A couple of paid holidays would be nice.

    I worked at Atrium Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My local co-workers were dedicated and skilled at their work. The atmosphere was friendly and supportive, even when the schedule became demanding. Compensation was competitive and benefits were generous so long as the local company was in charge.

    Cons

    Late in my tenure, corporate oversight became increasingly intrusive. An attempt was made to share the wealth of our successful branch with struggling branches, which led to increasingly ridiculous demands on our time and resources. All along, we fought a losing battle to keep our benefits and autonomy. While there were opportunities to advance, this was largely due to a willingness on the part of corporate to rollover senior positions or out-and-out downsize people whose tenure and expertise demanded higher pay. In the words of a colleague, it was a sinking ship.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate would do well to allow autonomy to successful branches. Build off success rather than trying to mandate uniformity. When the majority are failing, uniformity means everybody fails. Schedule according to capacity rather than trying to get ahead of the rest of the industry. Don't let marketing run the store. Find Officers who are in for the long haul, not the fast buck.
