    Do not allow the office manager to bully staff. More consistency with procedures is needed. Employees need to be trusted to do their job a little more.

    If you ask whats going wrong in meeting, correct the issue instead of firing employees until they ignore what ALL the others are complaining about

    I worked at JELD-WEN full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start a career in fenestration
    Breadth of product
    Market position
    Steady flow of new product development/refreshes and acquisitions
    Strong national customers
    Good culture

    Cons

    Too many layers of management
    Slow to deal with bad actors
    COLA for sales team does not cover true costs. Many managers live in remote places like Kansas, rural PA to make ends meet while sales team expected to live in major metros with very little cola support.
    Sales time eaten away by reporting and tasking

    Advice to Management

    Flatten the organization, deal with bad actors, toxic managers before good employees leave. I had three really good managers and one that was incredibly toxic. I had been an above average performer and this gentleman didn't seem to care for my old boss or those in his "inner circle" and he made my life hell for it. When I was asked to relocate to another metro I played hard ball but eventually left. Heard the toxic manager didn't last much longer.

    Pros

    Solid company but changing fast

    Cons

    Use to be a solid company when it was family owned. Now controlled by an investment group and they have gutted the place. Just like a regular large corporate that cares about the $ over any and all workers that make the company a run of the mill business

    Advice to Management

    You are working your folks to the bone. Every cut you make you increase the existing workload onto those left and it is going to break....quality is going downhill...a recipe for disaster.
