    I worked at JELD-WEN full-time

    Pros

    Nice People and good benefits.

    Cons

    The company did a major restructuring and has lost customers and a lot of good people because of it. Employees in management positions have to do a lot of traveling and are away from home far to much, which is why a lot of people quit...too much travel.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the way the company had been run for years, that's what made JELD-WEN such a successful company and the employees where much happier with their jobs. Plus they had better quality control over the capital equipment that was being produced.
